It’s almost that time of year again. That time when many of us come together in peace and harmony. Obviously, we were referring to WonderCon 2019, which will be here in just 109 days.
While many have visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads, the good folks at Comic-Con International are busy lining up guests to appear in Anaheim this coming March 29-31, 2019. Sadly, the only announcement we have as to when WonderCon 2019 badges go on sale is “soon” (they’re obviously still checking their Naughty & Nice list).
According to their Toucan Blog, this is just a sneak peek, so stay tuned for more guests to be announced. In the meantime, here’s a look at who we’ll see so far:
- Vita Ayala (writer, Supergirl, Magic The Gathering, Marvel Knights 20th)
