Emerald City Comic Con

By Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)

Changes are in store for Emerald City Comic Con now that it is under new ownership. Some of it is noticeable at the 2015 event and based on what I have experienced, I think what’s planned will be good. For one thing, instead of three days of the show, there will be four. That might alleviate some of the congestion as not many people will attempt to cram as much into a day.

And maybe for next year’s show, some events can be spread out better or there will be the return of some fond favourites. The Star Wars reading by Twisted Toonz was missing this year. In previous shows, it was re-enacted by the voice talent that comes to this Seattle-based show. This year would have been killer with the fact that Patrick Warburton, the voice of the Tick and the television version of Buzz Lightyear, was in the house!

PatrickWarburtonThat’s right fans, The embodiment of The Tick will be making his appearance at Seattle’s Emerald City Comicon in 2015.

As The Tick he was the perfect casting choice in Ben Edlund’s live action series of the same name, but as Patrick Warburton he is the perfect casting for any animated series. Like voice artists Len Carlson and Bill Reiter before him, Warburton has a distinctive voice that adds to his existing comic flair.

Warburton’s lengthy animated credits span both TV, film and video game. In the TV world he is known for the characters Joe Swanson (Family Guy), Buzz Lightyear (Buzz Lightyear of Star Command), Brock Samson (The Venture Bros.) and Sheriff Bronson Stone (Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated). On the silver screen he has created the roles of Kronk (The Emporer’s New Groove), Pulaski (Planes: Fire & Rescue) and Agamemnon (Mr. Peabody & Sherman). Warburton has also become loved by gamers for his roles as Mozer (Metal Arms: Glitch In the System), Damone (Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust) and Hugo Vasquez (Tales from the Borderlands).
