2016 Emerald City Comicon: TwoOhSix Panel Picks - ECCC Coverage


From celebrity guests telling stories for a main hall packed with people to dedicated comic book fans learning about their favorite creators, the 2016 Emerald City Comicon panel schedule is packed with something for everyone to enjoy. After scouring the schedule, I have come up with a list of panel submissions that you won't want to miss!


Please note that I am not including Main Hall panels as those are the big heavy hitters like Nathan Fillion, Sean Astin, and Melissa Benoist who are all people you should already be very aware of. Instead, I decided to focus on some of the panels you may have missed or are just as excited to see as I am going into the convention. You will also notice that none of them overlap time wise so you could attend all of them if you wanted to. Click on a name and the link will take you to the panel page on the Emerald City Comicon website.
