When I first heard that WonderCon was going to be in Anaheim this year, I was partially thrilled, only because I’d save money on airfare and hotel stays. However, I completely forgot that SF has one thing over LA, which is less traffic.
Due to horrible weather over the weekend, in conjunction with two other events going on in the same venue (a cheerleading competition and a volleyball tournament), Anaheim was definitely overcrowded. To be honest, I can’t wait for this show to move back to San Francisco where I feel it truly belongs.
The show itself didn’t seem like the normal WonderCon. Perhaps because it was in the same venue as Wizard World Anaheim, it felt like a bigger version of it. Hollywood’s presence was definitely felt at the show, with big showings of Prometheus with Sir Ridley Scott in attendance, to Spider-Man’s Emma Stone, along with the casts of popular TV shows Community, Fringe, and Alcatraz, WonderCon’s star power was bright.
Artist’s Alley was in full swing, with many transactions occurring over the weekend. And while it didn’t seem too crowded, there was definitely a lot of hustle and bustle, and the show seemed to always be busy.
Again, while this weekend may have been a success, I definitely miss the atmosphere of San Francisco, and while it’s cheaper, it’s definitely worth the money to visit the Bay Area and enjoy the sights and sounds that Northern California has to offer.
I couldn’t take too many pictures as my battery was extremely low over the weekend, but here’s a look at some of the things WonderCon had to offer!

At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, “The Soup”), a fast-talking lawyer whose degree has been revoked. With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group who eventually learn more about themselves than their course work.
Also among the series stars who comprise the group are comedy legend Chevy Chase (“Chuck”) as Pierce, a man whose life experience has brought him infinite wisdom; Gillian Jacobs (“The Book of Daniel”) as Britta, the 28-year old drop out with something to prove; Yvette Nicole Brown (“Rules of Engagement”) as Shirley, a sassy middle-aged divorcÃ©e; Danny Pudi (“Greek”) as Abed, a pop culture junkie; Alison Brie (“Mad Men”) as Annie, a high-strung perfectionist; Donald Glover (“30 Rock”) as Troy, a former high school football star trying to find his way and Ken Jeong (“The Hangover”) as Spanish professor, SeÃ±or Chang.
“Community” is a Krasnoff Foster Entertainment, Harmonious Claptrap, Russo Brothers production, Universal Media Studios production in association with Sony Pictures Television. Russ Krasnoff (“The Soloist”), Dan Harmon (“The Sarah Silverman Program”), Joe Russo (“Arrested Development”), Anthony Russo (“Arrested Development”), Garrett Donovan (“Scrubs”), Neil Goldman (“Scrubs”) and Gary Foster (“The Soloist”) serve as executive producers.
