Emerald City Comic Con

Grab your light saber and glue on your pointy Spock ears. It’s time for the Emerald City Comic Con. And, yes, the rumors are true: The roster of guests is led by Leonard Nimoy, who'll be signing autographs at $65 a pop. Also in attendance: the legendary Stan Lee, whose Marvel Comics characters have earned billions at the box office (via Spider-Man, Iron Man, and company); Thomas Jane, whose The Punisher really wasn’t that bad; and Lou Ferrigno, the ’70s TV icon who’ll always be the first Hulk in our hearts. Elsewhere look for Gilbert Hernandez (Love & Rockets), artists from Pixar, and the guys behind the animated TV series Ben 10. Also of note: Seattle author Ben Thompson will discuss his book Badass: A Relentless Onslaught of the Toughest Warlords, Vikings, Samurai, Pirates, Gunfighters and Military Commanders to Ever Live. And prominent among the comic-book publishing booths will be local shop Fantagraphics. T. BOND
