WonderCon is this week, and if you aren’t already, you need to start getting excited. I mean, just look at all of the amazing food you’re going to be eating at the food trucks (in two locations this year!). And then, on top of that, we’ve got all kinds of wonder-ful news about the convention for you today, including lots of retro prints (TailSpin! The Muppet Show!), a special screening for WonderCon attendees, DC signings, and so much more.
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- Oheeay! Oheeoh! Oh My Disney has the details on the latest piece from Cyclops Print Works, a WonderCon exclusive TailSpin print by Glen Brogan. The 20″x30″, hand-numbered, piece is limited to just 150 pieces, and will retail for $65 – and you can score yours by stopping by the Cyclops Print Booth #1408.
- While tracking down DC’s booth signing schedule is often like looking for a needle in a haystack, we at least know a few of the signings that are happening this weekend, thanks to Batgirl and The Birds of Prey writers Julie Benson and Shawna Benson. You can catch them signing autographs at the DC Booth #1101 on Saturday, March 24 at 1PM, and again on Sunday, March 25 at 10AM.

- They’re good dogs, Brent. So many people were so excited about Elsa Chang’s peek at a painting of some good doggos that she announced while she won’t be selling the original “pupper painting“, she did create a digital version which will be available at WonderCon, at C-37 in Artist Alley.

Gosh so many people liked this pupper painting. I won't be selling this one exactly but I made a digital version of it that I will be selling at WonderCon next weekend!

Fun fact: I had the theme song for the Muppet Show stuck in my head the entire time I inked and colored this. Pick this fresh print up at Wondercon at table AA B40! pic.twitter.com/solbHNd06G
