Writer Brian Wood keeps busy. The "Demo" creator has "The Massive" and "Mara" scratching his creator-owned itch at Dark Horse and Image respectively, while he's dipping his toe into superhero comics with a stint on "Uncanny X-Men" (something it seems like he's still trying to wrap his mind around), plus he's got a "Conan the Barbarian" miniseries with his "Demo" collaborator Becky Cloonan and bringing the original trilogy "Star Wars" to life in a new series.

I got a couple of minutes with Wood during Emerald City Comic-Con to talk about why he's not bothered by the expanded universe, the love of Conan's life, and sex, athletics, and superheroes.



Today saw the latest title from "The Sixth Gun' co-creator Cullen Bunn, who's going from cowboys to vikings in "Helheim" at Oni Press. And to tell his story of hellhounds, witches, the living dead, and heav metal album cover-ready vikings, he's enlisted artist Joëlle Jones, whose clean line work has made "12 Reasons Why I Love Her" and "You Have Killed Me" a delight to read. The story opens with a band of vikings caught in between a battle of wills of two witches--and Jones has made a departure from dames and romance to murder in the frozen waste with glee, as you'll find in this interview from Emerald City Comic-Con.



Valiant publisher Fred Pierce was joined by artists Barry Kitson and Stefano Gaudiano, Dinesh Shamdasani (he's the guy who bought the line a couple of years back in order to resurrect it), and marketing director Hunter Gorinson to talk about "Harbinger Wars" and beyond during this Emerald City Comic-Con panel.



If you're a modern animation fan, you're probably into something Titmouse Inc. is putting out. The animation, graphics, and design studio took the stage at Emerald City Comic-Con with studio head Chris Prynoski, "Invader Zim"/"Johnny The Homicidal Maniac" creator Jhonen Vasquez, "Motorcity" producer Ben Kalina, and Man of Action's Jim Mahfood and Joe Casey.

What does the "Metalocalypse" studio have in store for 2013? Well, expect more "China, IL," more "Superjail," more "Venture Brothers," and they're working on something with both Amazon and Netflix. Find out what else what Titmouse had to say during their Emerald City Comic-Con panel about "Johnny The Homicidal Maniac" getting a movie and the insane "Disco Destroyer" coming to the revamped "Liquid Television!"



"When we started 'The Walking Dead,' no one knew it would become what it would become." That's actor Michael Rooker reflecting on the AMC series during Emerald City Comic-Con alongside co-star Danai Gurira who joined the series in the season two finale as Michonne.

The duo--who'll happily respond to their character names from the show--came ready to talk about Michonne and Merle during their raucous panel where they were joined by a very special guest...

(It was "The Walking dead" artist Charlie Adlard.)



Gillian Anderson, who'll be appearing in NBC's "Hannibal," warned fans that they should set their expectations very low for her panel; she joked that she didn't remember much from "The X-Files."

But she happily talked about her time post-"X-Files," holding court in a funny ECCC 2013 panel where she poked holes at her own career.



Hellboy's still in Hell and Mike Mignola came to Emerald City Comic-Con to talk about it. The "Hellboy in Hell" and "B.P.R.D." creator talked about the present and future of the Dark Horse series as one hero goes to hell and another group of heroes suffer Hell on Earth!

Find out why we shouldn't expect to see God in "Hellboy," what it's like collaborating with Guillermo del Toro, and exploring mythology through the "Hellboy" universe.



David Finch ("Justice League"), Scott Snyder ("Batman"), Jeff Lemire and Ray Fawkes ("Justice League Dark"), Ethan Van Sciver ("Batman"), Gail Simone ("Batgirl), "the most refined man in comics," James Robinson ("Earth 2"), and more loaded up a crowded stage to talk all things DC Comics during Emerald City Comic-Con.



Dark Horse Comics long ago distinguished itself as the home of non-capes comics, but in 2013, they're embracing them with Ghost, X, Captain Midnight and more in new series as the publisher explores the pulps and modern supes throughout the year. Plus, more new characters will be introduced in "Dark Horse Presents" throughout 2013.

Find out what the publisher has in store for superhero fans in this recap of their Emerald City Comic-Con panel.



The Land of Ooo came to ECCC this weekend as BOOM! Comics' KaBOOM! imprint brought along some of the creators behind the hit "Adventure Time" comics. Line editor Shannon Watters was joined by "Adventure Time" writer Ryan North and artists Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb along with "Fionna and Cake" miniseries writer/artist Natash Allegri.

Here's what the panelists talked about for the first year of "Adventure Time" comics (and what's happening beyond).



This July, "Birds of Prey" and "Batgirl" writer Gail Simone will be joining the sword and sandal set for an all-new ongoing "Red Sonja" series at Dynamite. We spoke with Simone about this ECCC announcement, the legacy of Sonja as a character



It might be a little damp this weekend in downtown Seattle, but if you're headed here for the weekend for Emerald City Comic-Con, you might be too busy having fun on the show floor to notice.

This will be my second trip to ECCC, so let's look at some of the cool things going on this weekend at the Washington State Convention Center.
