ECCC 2019 Wrap Up Coverage

With ECCC now a week behind us, we've finally had time to properly process this year's experience. As always, we view conventions through mostly Star Wars-tinted glasses and this year was a doozy. We, of course, have already indicated the massive amount of Star Wars opportunities at this year's show in our annual Guide to Star Wars at Emerald City Comic Con. What we forgot to mention was the incredible collaboration by the many costuming groups in the Seattle area.

For a quick tour of the exhibit, check out the video below:   A great feature about any [...]

As the first month of 2018 comes to a close, we come just one more month closer to the release of another Star Wars film.

But, despite still being in the dark about the next standalone film, there is quite a bit we do know about 2018. The following is a breakdown of what we can look forward to this year in the life of being Star Wars fans and collector.
