ECCC Preview: Dark Horse Will Keep You Busy!

Welcome to the first of sevreal pre-show previews we’ll be running today (and maybe tomorrow) about Emerald City Comic Con. They’re also my first try at mobile blogging, so excuse the typos!

First up is Dark Horse, who has a ton of things going on at the show.

First off, if you haven’t already done so, make sure you check out the Berger Books line. They’re spectacular, and I’m sure Dark Horse will be happy to sell you copies at the show. I rarely pre-order comics sight unseen, but I did so for Karen’s line and I couldn’t be happier with what I read.

Second, they have a bunch of great people appearing at the show, ready to speak with you, sell you their books and sign items. Here’s a few of the people involved:
