ARP - S08 - Emerald City Comicon 2014 Recap

Emerald City Comicon 2014 is over. Dylan and I had a great time there wearing our podcast shirts (thanks to Leigh Newman). We talked to so many people and saw some great panels and interviews.

ECCC also marks our 1 year anniversary of working on the show. It was last year at the con that Dylan and I discussed Avengers Vs. X-men and decided that we wanted to do a podcast where we record our discussions about comic book story arcs.

Also, this is our first "live" episode. We recorded this earlier this evening after getting home from the show. We had a great time and look forward to going again next year.

We took some pictures while at ECCC and you can view them here.
