Episode 18: We’re joined this week by Emerald City Comicon (ECCC) founder Jim Demonakos and ReedPOP Global VP Lance Fensterman. With the announcement that ECCC would be joining the ReedPOP family question abound and we’re here to get some answers! Who is ReedPOP? What do they want with ECCC’s Minions? WILL THE PRICE OF SOFT PRETZELS GO UP AT THE FOOD COURT?! It’s hard-hitting investigative podcasting on Surviving Creativity.
It was great fun to sit down with Jim Demonakos and talk about the Emerald City Comicon/ReedPOP merger. ECCC is a show that I’ve been honored to be a part of for a long time — since back when it was held at the Mariners’ stadium. Years after year, they’ve been kind enough to bring me out for the show. And year after year, I’ve been able to witness Demonakos build this up from a humble comic-convention-that-loves-comics into a national powerhouse — one that never lost that love of comics. ReedPOP has acquired a phenomenal show and some supremely talented people.
Last but not least, if you love Tales From The Con, the weekly comic that I write for the Emerald City Comicon Web site, you’ll be happy to know that I’ll be continuing that comic for the foreseeable.
