Since its inception in 2003, Emerald City Comi Con has exploded to include huge names across a number of geek-tastic industries: comics (of course), science fiction, movies, television, gaming, and more.
One gauge for the evolution of a convention is the talent it can attract.
Previous years have been dazzled by star-sprinkled ensembles including Patrick Stewart, Felicia Day, Wil Wheaton, Gillian Anderson, Carrie Fisher, Adam West, and so many more.
S.-based geek conventions across gaming, anime, comics, sci-fi, fantasy, and more.
But why would they when they have built up a critical mass of a gamer fan following with their comic of nearly 4 million readers?
Gen Con has been bringing a bevy of gaming to the masses since 1968.
Many gamers have nodded off into a daydream or two about being able to go at some point.
And not even a decade ago, you only needed to be one or two connections removed from a game industry pro to score tickets.
PAX draws in crowds large enough to fill a football stadium – and in record time. And that’s weekend passes doubled from in 2013 to 0 in 2014.) Short for “Penny Arcade Expo”, PAX is known for representing a comprehensive breadth of gamerdom: from retro to next season’s anticipated console release, from tabletop gaming to independent gaming, expect to find it there. I could easily write blog posts for a solid week about PAX, so I should stop while I’m ahead.
(Would you believe me if I told you they sold out tickets within 30 minutes in previous years? Hopefully that’s enough to whet your whistle and get you watching the official PAX Twitter feed for when tickets are up for a whole, oh, I don’t know, 10 minutes before they sell out.
