March 6, 2019
HORSHAM, PA, March 5, 2019 — Comic book and graphic novel publisher, Zenescope Entertainment, has announced its plans for Emerald City Comic Con 2019. The convention will run March 14th-17th, 2019 and will be located at the Washington State Convention Center in downtown Seattle with Zenescope appearing at booth #2415 throughout the four-day event.

Among the dozens of trade paperbacks, box collections and various merchandise available at Zenescope booth during the convention weekend, the company will also be debuting four separate Emerald City Exclusive Comics with cover artwork by ultra-talented illustrators: Keith Garvey and Sabine Rich. These exclusive comic book issues are all limited editions, ranging from 100 to 350 total copies, and will be available only while supplies last.

Also showcased during the weekend will be Zenescope’s brand new Sela Mathers (aka Snow White) statue, which was recently crowd-funded through Kickstarter. This is the first in Zenescope’s line of bishoujo-style collectible statues based on the company’s most iconic female characters. Designed by artist Jason Cardy, the collectible statue comes in black-and-white and color and is limited to 1750 and 250 respectively.

Zenescope will also be launching its brand new “pin program,” in partnership with collectible pin company, FanSets. Twenty-three pins will be released throughout the year, including an exclusive Emerald City Comic Con pin, featuring Zenescope character, Britney Waters, aka Red Riding Hood. Zenescope staff members at the booth will also have special employee pins, and the only way customers can get them is by trading with staff to become the ultimate Zenescope pin collector.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
