    We’re also excited to introduce our Blind Box Figure Exchange to ECCC. Half the fun about these little figures is the surprise of what you’ll unwrap. Purchase a figure at our ECCC booth, and if you end up with a figure that’s already part of your collection, you can swap it out with the figure in our display from the same line. We introduced this exchange at a convention last year, and people loved it!

    ECCC ’12: TFAW Interviews Memorial’s Chris Roberson & Rich Ellis

    Watch Our Chris Roberson/Rich Ellis Interview on YouTube!

    Hey everyone! We’re back from and excellent time at ECCC 2012, and we’ve got some interviews to share with you! Enter TFAW booth #512 for a very special interview with Chris Roberson and Rich Ellis, the writer and artist behind IDW Publishing’s Memorial series.

    If you haven’t checked Memorial out yet, here’s a brief recap: a young woman, later known as Em, wakes up in the hospital with no memory of her past or identity. A year later, she stumbles into the wondrous–and hidden–world of Everland, where people (some strangely familiar) and their memories are captured for an unknown purpose. With nothing but a talking cat to guide her, she finds herself targeted by living statues, an evil ventriloquist’s doll, and the mysterious Court of Shadows.

    Watch the video below to get the inside scoop from Roberson (Cinderella: Fables Are Forever, iZombie) and Ellis as they give us the background behind Memorial, talk about their influences, and serve us the scoop on Memorial #5!

Here, he talks about working with Grant Morrison on Batman & Robin, his upcoming IDW series, Suicide Girls, and what he’d like to do next!

    ECCC ’11: B.P.R.D. Panel

    The entire creative team behind B.P.R.D. was on hand (perhaps for the first time ever) to answer fan questions and make an announcement on which creator will be leaving the series. It was interesting to hear how collaborative the process is between Mignola, Arcudi, Davis, Stewart, and Allie.

    ECCC ’11: The Guild Panel

    We were fortunate enough to get into The Guild‘s epic panel at ECCC, moderated by the Portland Mercury‘s Erik Henriksen and featuring series creator/writer (and Codex actress) Felicia Day, Tink actress Amy Okuda, and actor/writer Wil Wheaton–and at least 4,000 audience members. They talked about the past and future of the show, which superhero the ladies would like to *ahem* spend time with, and what’s happening with The Guild comics.

    ECCC ’11: James Marsters Panel

    Emerald City Comicon is in full swing, and we were lucky enough to get into the James Marsters panel! Here, the actor formerly known as Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer answered every question Pop Culture Zoo and the audience had for him–and we mean every question, from whether he’s read Buffy Season 8 (not so much) to whether he and his Hawaii Five-0 costar Alex O’Loughlin ever talk about their vampire pasts (they do–and it’s hilarious).
