- While Scott Blair won’t be at San Diego Comic-Con this year (and more on that later this week in Under the Tents!), he will be at WonderCon. If you’re looking for a sketch from him, make sure you e-mail him now to get on his list, as he probably won’t be drawing during the actual show.
- SecondSpin, a sister company of FYE, will be exhibiting at WonderCon at Booth #1167! The 20×20 space will be selling lots of cool merchandise – so stop by to check it out.
- Essential Sequential return to WonderCon this year – and commissions are now open for their attending artists, including Tim Sale, Eric Canete, and Dave Johnson. You can find more information on their site.
