Dark Horse , Penguin Random House and More Comic Creators Pull Out Of ECCC Over Coronavirus Concern

Earlier today, Bleeding Cool reported on comics creators who stated they were no longer going to Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle in a week's time, over fears regarding the spread of the coronavirus. We also stated we understood that a number of publishers would also make their absence official today. Well, Dark Horse Comics were first to announce they were no longer to attend.

As did Penguin Random House.

And I am told to expect more announcements tomorrow. And here are the first of a number of creators taking, or considering taking similar actions.

More to come I am sure.

ECCC Will Continue - But Is Getting 'Enhanced Cleaning'
