We’re excited, and we hope you’re excited too!  We’ll be shooting lots of video in both places for those of you stuck in the rest of the world, because we can’t leave you out!

Also featuring local Seattle talent:

The Noc Noc is a mere couple of blocks from the convention center, so you can continue your geeky excursions well into the night with this event!

All art created will be donated to Emerald City Comicon’s Saturday Night art auction, and all proceeds go the Seattle Children’s Hospital. Come help support art for a good cause, and watch artists do what they do best in a fantastic environment.
