The official art book of Emerald City Comicon, Monsters & Dames is an annual release that invites a wide spectrum of talent to indulge their artistic idiosyncrasies in the name of charity, with proceeds from sales of the hardcover release and original art auctions having raised over $55,000 for Seattle Children's hospital. Between now and Emerald City's start date of March 27, ComicsAlliance will showcase some of the gorgeous work to be found in the 2014 edition of Monsters & Dames, including exclusive images you'll see here before any where else.
Today's preview includes never-before-seen art by modern master Frank Cho as well as material by 2014 cover artist Arthur Adams, Nidhi Chanani, Alina Chau, Heather Hudson, Chris Sheridan, Tim Seeley and Jackie Lewis.
Offering a notably comics-specific, distinctly warm and fuzzy vibe that's not to be found at some of the massive and monstrous, comics-suppressing conventions here in the US, Seattle's Emerald City Comicon feels a lot more like comics summer camp than it does a media trade show. Comics professionals from all dimensions of the industry -- creators, publishers, press and beyond -- all look forward to ECCC for the same reasons attendees do; it's a great weekend to meet your readers, meet your favorite authors, and celebrate the medium we all love.
Also, buying cool stuff.
That same summer camp quality that makes ECCC worth attending may also make it worth commemorating, which is why it makes sense that geek fashion hausWe Love Finehas made its first ever partnership with a convention with a limited edition line of t-shirts. Featuring Marvel characters like Captain Marvel, Hawkeye and Deadpool as well as other We Love Fine licenses like My Little Pony, Transformers, ElfQuest, Bravest Warriors, Adventure Time and Bee & Puppycat alongside Seattle iconography (very cute), the ECCCxWLF collection will be available exclusively for $25 each at the Seattle show from March 27-30.
Emerald City Comicon, a time when the "Seattle Freeze" thaws and comic creators, consumers, and costumers are welcomed into the city's warm embrace. The event also marks the beginning of convention season, a frenzied (and friendly) whirlwind that will run until the close of New York Comic Con in October
Seattle's Emerald City Comicon kicked off the convention season of 2013 with the city's largest gathering of creators, comic retailers, and cosplayers. In celebration of that beloved of all seasons -- which has now managed to stretch to three-quarters of a year -- we bring to you our Furious Five feature -- five creators, five questions each.

Where some conventions skew more toward pop culture than comic books, this past weekend's Emerald City Comicon 2013 stocked Seattle with hundreds of prominent creators from every corner of the medium. ComicsAlliance

June will see the launch of Trinity of Sin: Pandora, a new ongoing series starring the titular mystery woman of the new DC Comics Universe. Written by Ray Fawkes (Justice League Dark, Constantine) and drawn by Daniel Sampere (Batgirl, The Ravagers), the series will hopefully get down to business with this character, whose few appearances in various DC publications over the last year have hinted at lots of things -- like a "Trinity War" -- that we hope will finally come to fruition this year.First seen in 2011's Flashpoint, Pandora explained to The Flash that the three distinct DC Comi
