This weekend’s Emerald City Comicon seems to have been a raging success, if only from the amount of “highly refreshed” tweets we saw all weekend. The Seattle Times has a preview which notes that some 25,000 people were expected.

Based on the number of pictures like this one from @alisonst showing packed crowds, it would seem that the first year going from a two- to a three-day show was a raging success.

There were a few bits of news: Guy Davis is leaving BPRD after seven years — that seems like a decentish run.

This year’s It-boy Nick Spencer is now exclusive at Marvel but is free to work on as much creator-owned stuff at Image as he pleases.

There were Marvel and DC panels, but as one participant put it, “We’re trying to be cagey” and they succeeded.

Boilerplate, the mechanical marvel, was represented at the show, and was photographed with a kindred soul.

Local real-life superhero Phoenix Jones also made the scene, here with Kirby Krackle bandmember Kyle Stevens.

    I met Matthew Soutworth, artist for Stumptown. Such a nice guy. It’s really great meeting people whom work you admire; especially when they are amicable =). Yay Emerald City Comicon. PS the after party’s were memorable =)

    I was there on Saturday and the crowds were huge! It took me almost an hour to stop feeling overwhelmed and get acclimated. I can’t believe how much the show’s grown.
