    Wondercon 2013 Con Report!

    On March 29-31, 2013, Anaheim was home to Wondercon 2013! With the decision to keep Wondercon in Anaheim this year, I couldn’t help but wonder if this was a permanent move. The numbers seem to support that decision, with record numbers attending the show, backing with CCI’s reputation of entertaining fans with celebrities, comic book superstars, and amazing vendors! In addition, it’s proximity to Disneyland is always a big plus for any guy wanting to entertain the whole family.

    The show floor was bigger this year, almost replicating the 2 show floor model that ECCC used this year. Also, the huge convention center dome was used to house movie and TV stars to promote their latest works. It was definitely a well run show, and this reporter definitely had a great time talking to fans, artists, and celebrities. Wondercon definitely put on a great show, and whether it’s in Anaheim or San Francisco, and I can’t wait for next year!

    Now, on to the amazing things I got to see at the show:

    Welcome to Wondercon 2013!

    My first stop: joining the long line of fans for the Wondercon exclusives of Mondo!

    Ron Lim signing some Thanos related books in Artist Alley.

    Jim Steranko signing some Nick Fury books at his booth.

    Admiring the beautiful Arrow statue on display at the DC booth…

     

    And then bumping into some fans on the show floor.

     

    The awesome display at the Oblivion booth.

    And a Rocketeer behind the banner posing for fans.

    Shredder and Deadpool yelling and random people on the floor. Instant comedy.

    Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld sketching for fans all weekend.

    Kristin Kreuk posing for photographers at Wondercon for Beauty and the Beast!

    A Superman fan dressed up for the premiere for Superman Unbound.

    Batman rogues running amuck at Wondercon.

    Scott Snyder, Jim Lee, and Alex Sinclair, signing at the DC booth at the end of the day.

    Marc Silvestri sketching for fans all weekend on his birthday!

    Stan Lee came by and wishing Marc a happy birthday!

    An amazing Witchblade cosplayer delighting Marc and his fans!

    Excited fans waiting in line for Pac Rim.

    I got to meet the talented artist Ethan Castillo in the Dan Slott line! Here’s a piece that was inspired by Humberto Ramos.

    Dan Slott showing Scott Snyder some love at his signing.

    The cast of Revolution sharing a laugh at Wondercon.

    Mark Waid talking to the Boom Studios crew.

    ECCC 2013 Con Report!

    Comments Off

    On March 1-3, 2013, the Washington State Convention Center was home to the 10th annual Emerald City Comic Con! While I’ve attended the show 2 years prior, the show had undergone a massive change, particularly opening up a whole new hallway, adding to the depth of the show, as well as the serious amount of star power in their guests both in media as well as the comic world.

    In terms of size alone, ECCC now seems to belong in the upper echelon of top comic conventions, trailing only SDCC, NYCC, and being on par with heavy hitter shows such as C2E2, and WonderCon. Jim Demonakos has put together a consistently solid show, and judging from the positive comments from the artists and writers that I spoke to at the show, ECCC will continue to be a great presence in the comic con circuit.

    Heading into the show, I seriously underestimated the intense love of comics the fans up in the northwest have, experiencing long lines from show exclusives such as Sex # 1 and the Walking Dead Governor Special, to artist commission lines for Bruce Timm, Adi Granov, Skottie Young, Charlie Adlard, and Humberto Ramos. Going upstairs to the celebrity room, I was able to witness extremely long lines for stars such as Patrick Stewart, Christopher Lloyd, and Gillian Anderson. Overall, this show was the perfect mix of celebrities and comics one would expect from a comic convention. While SDCC is focused more on the entertainment side of it all, the love of comics was still heavily prevalent at this show, which made me happy to see so many fans line up to meet their favorite creators. I can’t wait to see this show continue to grow and foster the next generation of comic fans!

    And now, onto the pictures:

    Putting the “Graphic” in Graphic Novels
    It’s time to talk about sex and violence! Black Kiss II, Butcher Baker, Sex, Saga, Happy!, Multiple Warheads, Sex Criminals: these comics are definitely not for kids. Image Comics creators who aren’t shying away from adult situations talk about creating comics for grown-ups. Is there really such a thing as “gratuitous”? What’s it like to be banned in the UK and Canada? Join some of comics most respected creators for an eye-opening conversation. Panelists: Joe Casey (Butcher Baker the Righteous Maker, Sex), Howard Chaykin (Black Kiss II), Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals), Brandon Graham (Multiple Warheads), Fiona Staples (Saga) FRIDAY 5 PM Hall B

    Skybound: On the Rise
    There’s no limit on what to expect from Skybound, Robert Kirkman’s imprint at Image Comics. The Walking Dead continues to dominate comics and television, Invincible just hit its historic 100th issue, and new series are on the horizon. Join Charlie Adlard, Ryan Ottley and more as they discuss what’s in Skybound’s future.
    Panelists: Ryan Ottley, Charlie Adlard, Phil Hester, Josh Williamson SATURDAY 1 PM Hall B

    Wondrous Worlds, Fractured Futures: Speculative Fiction and Image Comics
    With the unlimited potential of comics, there is perhaps no better medium for speculative fiction than comics. Limited only by their imaginations, Image Comics creators have been creating far-flung universes and dystopian futures where science, fantasy, and technology explode in rich possibilities. Find out why they choose science fiction, how they build worlds, and what inspires them.
