If you happened to meander through downtown Seattle this past weekend, chances were that you would’ve seen Batman or Spiderman patrolling the streets. Maybe even the full-fledged X-Men if you were lucky.

Unfortunately, their immediate goal wasn’t to keep our city safe. Instead, it was to enjoy Seattle’s premier comic book and pop culture convention: Emerald City Comicon (ECCC).

Once a year, comic enthusiasts from around the Pacific Northwest storm Seattle’s convention center to attend Comicon. And having heard many great things about the event, this year I finally decided to check out the event myself. However, before I share some of my highlights, here’s the buzz from this superhero weekend:

Highly buzzed about celebrity attendees included Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s James Marsters and Star Trek’s William Shatner, Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, and Wil Wheaton. Cosplay (costume play) also produced a lot of chatter, which makes sense due to the many great attendee get-ups this year.
