WonderPost: Skybound, Marvel, Gabby Zapata, Kate Carleton, Panels

In WonderCon by Kerry DixonLeave a Comment

WonderCon is officially “next month”, and if you haven’t already purchased your badge to the March 25-27 LA event, you should get on that.

Last week, we learned that DC Animation and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be bringing Justice League Vs. Teen Titans to the convention, but we’ve got lots of other news to share. We’ve got updates on comic giants Marvel and Skybound, updates from artists like Gabby Zapata and Kate Carleton, and even some more panel updates.

Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:

  • Commissions for WonderCon for comic book artist Paolo Rivera should be opening soon this month.

  • It should come as a surprise to no one that Skybound is headed back to WonderCon this year – and while details on what they’ll be bringing to the convention are scarce, we do know thanks to writer John Carle that he will be on a Skybound panel this year. In the past, Skybound has also brought along a booth, artists for autographs, and more.

  • Continuing the (unfortunate) trend of the last few years, it looks like Marvel won’t be headed to WonderCon this spring, as Vice President & Executive Editor of Marvel Digital Media Ryan Penagos hinted that it seemed unlikely. While that basically translates to no booth/large star-studded panels for the Marvel Cinematic Universe or its TV equivalent, you can surely expect some Marvel artists to still be found around the convention. And it sounds like they’ll be back at San Diego Comic-Con, which should be no surprise to anyone.

  • Crazy4ComicCon’s Tony B. Kim revealed on Twitter that he will be hosting another panel at this year’s convention, with more details to come.

  • Ningen Headwear, the maker of adorable animal-shaped fleece hats, will be headed to WonderCon next month.

  • Artist Orneryjen announced on tumblr that she’ll be exhibiting in Artist Alley at WonderCon, and you can also find her at Gallifrey One this weekend and Emerald City Comic Con in April.
  • Artist StarkGravingMad will also be exhibiting at this year’s convention, she announced on tumblr, and showed off a sneak peek of her first official StarkGravingMad art zine that will be available at the convention.

  • The group behind H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival will be headed back to WonderCon, with a panel called “Describing the Indescribable: Adapting the Works of H.P. Lovecraft”. Although no date or time have been announced, you can join panelists Leslie Klinger, Kevin McTurk, Cody Goodfellow, Aaron Vanek, and Pete von Sholly at the WonderCon panel, or head to the Redwood Bar & Grill on Saturday night for a reception.
  • The Scriptwriters Network, a non-profit organization that organizes events for script writers to learn and grow, will be exhibiting at WonderCon this year, and you can find them at Booth #941.
  • Artist Joel Adams announced on his website that he will also be exhibiting at the convention.
  • Illustrator Kate Carleton showed off some of her work on tumblr, which you can pick up from her booth at WonderCon. She’s also currently accepting pre-orders, and you can find out more information on tumblr.
