A new year means new opportunities, and this year I’m happy to announce that TGON will be covering the 2018 Emerald City Comic Convention! I have personally been dying to go to this con for years, so being able to enjoy the experience and represent TGON with a couple other members of the crew is a dream come true. And the best part of waking up on January 1st is realizing that ECCC is only 59 days away! Which is great because I can’t wait to let my geek flag fly, but also terrifying because of how behind I am with cosplay creation. Yikes.

In celebration of this announcement, I’ve compiled a list of celebs who have been announced as guests for the 2018 Emerald City Comic Con and highlighted a few who I am particularly pumped to see there! You can keep an eye on the ECCC website here for updates on guests. Be sure to check out the list of amazing exhibitors who will be on the showfloor as well!

The 2018 panel list has not yet been posted, but TGON will be scoping everything out as soon as it is! Check back here and follow me on Twitter for updates. I’d love to hear some thoughts on what coverage you’d like to see this year!

Jeremy Shada

Though he’s better known as Finn the Human from Adventure Time, I can’t wait to meet Loverboy Lance from Voltron: Legendary Defender! You better believe I’ll be getting a photo with him while I’m cosplaying Acxa!

Khary Payton

He’s a talented man, and two things he is best known for are his work as Ezekiel in The Walking Dead and variations of Cyborg from Teen Titans!

If you don’t love Matthew Lewis for his role as Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films, I’m sorry, but we can’t be friends.
