We shared the above program cover for Emerald City Comic Con by Brandon Graham a couple days ago, and just like the rest of the world, we were impressed/enamored. But what we didn’t know was who everyone was; I could personally guess maybe 90%, but there were a few I had no idea on.
Thankfully, today Brandon posted the guide on his tumblr, breaking down everyone in the image and thus further reinforcing that this should be on a poster or something and not just a magazine that’s only relevant for one weekend. It’s incredibly helpful in pointing out who is who — like, for example, today I learned that the giant sideways face on the right side is not just some weird floating head with a beard but actually a mascot head from “Down Set Fight” (co-written by Multiversity’s own Chad Bowers!) and the hair of Dee from “Rat Queens.” Learn something new everyday!
