WonderPost: J. Scott Campbell, Food Trucks, Monkey Minion Press, Val Hochberg, Brian Michael Bendis

We are T-minus 32 days away from WonderCon 2019 (and the many food trucks) — and while we fully expect Comic-Con International to start their 30 days of tips and news leading up to the convention this week, we’ve got a jumpstart for those of you interested in which food trucks might be in attendance; scoring commissions, prints, and original art; and finding your favorite artists and exhibitors at this year’s convention.

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

  • Wondering which food trucks will be at WonderCon this year? While no one has outright confirmed their appearance yet (likely waiting for CCI to either confirm or announce), we did a little sleuthing for you. Meat Up BBQ has “Potential Wonder-Con” listed on the calendar, as does The Viking Truck. Burger Monster lists a “tentative hold” on the WonderCon dates on their calendar. We’re sure there will be lots of additions and confirmations soon.

  • Comic book artist J. Scott Campbell is kicking off his 2019 convention appearances with both Emerald City and WonderCon. You can catch him at Booth #1019 with “yet-to-be-announced exclusives”, signed comics, art books, sketch books, and more.

  • David Lucarelli, writer of Tinseltown and The Children’s Vampire Hunting Brigade, will be exhibiting at WonderCon this year.

  • Monkey Minion Press always has some amazing space-themed prints available, and 2019 will be no different. This year they’ve created a new “Ad Astra” print, which will see just 50 pieces spread between a few conventions — but WonderCon is on the list.

  • But that isn’t the only print Monkey Minion Press is bringing to the convention. They’ll also be bringing a new Fallout print, inspired by old Coca-Cola ads.

  • The tabletop and card game company No Limit Games is heading to WonderCon, where you’ll hopefully get to play some of their latest games.

  • You can catch artist Mike Mayhew at WonderCon this year, at the KRS Comics Booth #709. He’ll have original art and collectibles, and also be signing books and doing remarks.

  • Artist and illustrator Irene Flores has been busy creating new pieces to debut at WonderCon, like this beautiful Game of Thrones Sansa Stark piece.

  • It’s bad news bears for fans of Brian Michael Bendis: The prolific writer and author won’t be attending WonderCon this year.

  • Speaking of commissions, artist Lydia Anslow will be exhibiting at WonderCon B-44, where she’ll be doing on-site commissions on Friday and Saturday as time permits. If you want to be sure you get a commission, you can join her pre-commission list to pick up your piece at the convention. Find more information on tumblr.
  •  Content creators Matt Knowles, Stephanie Cannon, and Luke Martinez are heading to WonderCon to represent their collective InSymmertry Creations, as well as The Ascendant and Heirs.

  • Publisher and entertainment company D.I.Y. Entertainment are heading back to WonderCon this year, where they’ll have new books and more.
