Is it too early for WonderCon news? We don’t think so. The new year is off to a great start so far, with news about artists, and more at the March 23-25 convention. If you haven’t already, don’t forget that you can also now get your badge and hotel for WonderCon.
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- Menh Voong of BeeFy & Co. needs our help. In trying to decide which Bulbapoo to make a WonderCon exclusive, he opened it up to a vote. Which will you choose: left or right?

Here's the confirmed list of conventions (so far) for 2018. Look for more info at the start of the new year for commission sign-ups and additional conventions/appearances. You may notice that my beloved Gem City is not on the list. It is my favorite con, and I will promote it always. Unfortunately we had already applied for Wondercon when GCCC made the date change, and while we love GCCC, we think Wondercon will be an excellent opportunity for us. Our GCCC family understands, and we look forward to 2019. #WonderCon #SDCC #C2E2 #comiccon #AkronComicon #SeanForney #artist #comicbooks
