A legend is coming to Emerald City Comic Con.

While James Hong's resume goes back 69 years, in the past few years he's become known to us as the father in two big franchises: Kung Fu Panda's Mr. Ping, and Everything Everywhere All at Once's grandfather Gong Gong. But no need to argue on what you know him best for - you can tell him yourself this spring in Seattle.

James Hong is the latest major guest announced for Seattle's Emerald City Comic Con 2024, and he will be in attendance for Friday March 1 through Sunday March 3 - for autographs, photo ops, and more than a few good conversations. And to make sure you get your time with him, Popverse Superfan members get guaranteed access on Hong's sure-to-be long lines.

Popverse Superfans get guaranteed access to ECCC 2024 James Hong autographs and photo op appointments on Wednesday, December 20 at 12:00 PM Pacific time. Purchase your photo ops and autographs by heading to EmCity24.com/PhotoAuto

You don't need to learn kung fu or jump between universes to get this deal – but a Popverse Superfan membership can help you get so much more out of celebrity content at ECCC. Popverse Superfans get first access to tickets for upcoming ReedPop events (such as ECCC), as well as first access to photo opps and autographing opportunities such as these. As if that wasn't enough, you will also have access to all of the Emerald City Comic Con 2024 panels that we will be filming (and there will be a bunch!), as well as all of Popverse's members-only content going back to our launch, including panel videos from previous ECCCs, as well as New York Comic Con, C2E2, MCM Comic Con, and Florida Supercon.

If you're going to ECCC and want to ensure you'll get to meet Hong at the best times, there's no better way than a Popverse Superfan membership.

Re-live the good times with our Kung Fu Panda watch order.
