This year's ECCC hasn't even occured yet, but we already have dates for next year's Seattle staple.After this weekend's 2022 Emerald City Comic Con, ECCC will return to Seattle on March 2 - 5 for another four-day event. Like its sister show C2E2, it is reverting back to its classic spring dates. Although a reason for the season-change hasn't been officially specified, our educated guess is its due to the similiar limited open weekends at the convention center as ReedPop discussed Sunday at C2E2.
The 2023 Emerald City Comic Con will, for the 13th year, eminate from the Seattle Convention Center (formerly known the Washington State Convention Center). The building underwent a name change earlier this year, but those who have been here before can expect the same show floor, panel rooms, and more.
Popverse Superfans will recieve a special presale link Monday, August 15 at 12:00 PM PST. Tickets will go on sale to the general public Sunday, August 21 at 5:00 PM CT. (Yes, Popverse is owned by ReedPop - which also runs ECCC.)
Launched in 2003 with roughly 2,500 attendees, ReedPop's Seattle spring comic + pop culture show ECCC has grown to become a big part of the Northwest comics scene. Pre-pandemic, Emerald City Comic Con regularly held crowds of 95,000 and more.
We're breaking news of the 2023 ECCC dates just as Popverse is getting ready for the 2022 ECCC - catch up on our plans and our results in this ECCC coverage round-up.
