Make-a-Wish to Make Seattle Teen's Comic Idea a Reality at ECCC

The Make-a-Wish Foundation will debut a new comic book titled “Time Wreckers” at Emerald City Comicon this weekend. The comic book was written by Noah Ingram, a Make-a-Wish recipient who was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 14. Now 20 years old, Ingram will attend ECCC for the debut of the comic along with the group of graphic artists who illustrated the project.

“Time Wreckers” was spearheaded by Dreamworks TV writer and “Axe Cop” co-creator Ethan Nicolle. Nicolle assembled the group of illustrators and animators who provided art for the book, including “Slugterra” artist Brett Bean, “Motorcycle Samurai” artist Chris Sheridan and "Wizards of the Coast" illustrator Emily Figenschuh.

“Time Wreckers” follows the exploits of a young would-be wizard Kern, who finds that his peaceful Seattle suburban home is a hotbed of mythical creatures. Kern must travel through time to heal the various rifts that have flung these creatures into the present, putting him face-to-face with the likes of dragons, vampires and unicorns.

The comic book was organized by Make-a-Wish Alaska and Washington, which has granted wishes to over 6,300 local children with life-threatening medical issues since 1986. The organization will host a panel with Ingram and participating artists at ECCC in room 3B of the Washington Convention Center at 5:30 pm on Saturday, March 4. A poster signing session will take place prior to the panel from 1 - 2 pm at Booth #1001 on the Washington State Convention Skybridge.
