I’m adverbially excited to be at this year’s Emerald City Comicon, because a) it sounds like a really fun time, b) it’s my first year as a fledgling pro, and c) it’s a short bus ride from home so I can flee when I’m at capacity and not have to deal with surge pricing or parking. That’s the secret to life, friends: cheap and easy public transportation.

Where will I be? I’ll be at the Angry Robot Books table on Friday from 2-4, signing books, body parts, and books made of body parts. The rest of the time, I’ll be here:

The Science Fiction genre is known for tackling important social issues and examining the human condition, as well as things exploding or being on fire. Alex DeCampi (Smoke, Grindhouse), Adam Rakunas (Windswept), Margaret Trauth (Decrypting Rita), Douglas Wolk (Judge Dredd: Mega City 2) and Arthur Wyatt (2000AD) take a look at the tropes and themes of modern SF and the intersection of flashy eye-candy and deeper meaning.
