It’s been a busy week in the world of WonderCon news. The biggest news, of course, is that both the list and map of Exhibitors is finally out, so you can start charting your plan of attack to get from IDW to Warner Bros. to Image Comics. We’ve also gotten word that The Messengers will have a panel, and more details about the Batman vs. Robin world premiere panel.
But that isn’t all of the WonderCon news, by a long shot. We’ve also got news on Cartoon Hangover – the makers of Bee and Puppycat, lots of artists and their work, a Sons of Anarchy comics signing, sad news about Special Guest Francesco Francavilla, and much more.
Here’s some news you might have missed:
- IGN personality and host of The Daily Fix, Naomi Kyle announced on Facebook that she will be signing at WonderCon 2015.
- Katya Bowser, story artist and illustrator, posted examples of her prints she will be selling at WonderCon on Tumblr. Some of the art include assorted Spider-Ladies from Spider-Man and Steven Universe. Bowser also posted on Instagram that she will have a comic book, The River Spirit, she is printing and will have available at her table.
- Hero Complex Gallery posted a “tease for WonderCon” on their Instagram of a Watchmen print work in progress. The artist is Robert Bruno and he will be signing at the HGC booth during WonderCon, presumably with the Watchmen print there in some capacity as well.
- Jeff Krell, creator of the gay-themed comedy comic strip Jayson, tweeted that he will be signing at the Prism Comics booth at WonderCon on April 4th and 5th.
I will be appearing at @WonderCon on April 4-5 at @prismcomics booth #809. Signing times will be announced shortly. http://t.co/axl7L54v0G

- The Screen Junkies team announced on Twitter that they will have an “Honest Trailers” panel at WonderCon on Sunday, April 15 from 2:30-3:30pm in Room 300DE. Honest Trailers are a snarky and satirical take on a movie’s trailer with re-cut footage that more accurately describe the movie in question. Though critical, it’s mostly for entertainment value and in good fun. Find them on their YouTube channel.
YAY! We're doing an #HonestTrailers panel @WonderCon Anaheim: Sunday 4/5/15, 2:30p.m. – 3:30p.m., Room: 300DE – Who's coming!?

- Sadly, previously announced WonderCon Special Guest, Francesco Francavilla posted on Twitter that he will no longer be able to attend due to a family issue.
Sorry everyone, but due to some family issues, we aren't able to go to any conventions right now so I had to cancel both ECCC & WonderCon 🙁
