WonderPost: Patrick Ballesteros, Steven Universe, Nooligan, CLAUS Studios

We know Mondays are hard for most. That’s why we have a WonderPost full of juicy WonderCon news. SDCC’s sister convention will see some great stuff from Cryptozoic, Patrick Ballesteros, Nooligan, and a whole lot more.

Here’s a look at what you might have missed:

  • Comic-Con International revealed their official Program Book cover for WonderCon 2019. Spoiler alert: I’m Batman (OK, maybe not, but have you ever seen Batman and me in the same room at the same time? Just sayin’).

  • Our good friend Patrick Ballesteros is coming into 2019 con season swinging for the fences with his first large print of 2019. Look for this when he brings it to WonderCon this year.

  • In our last WonderPost, we were excited to see Justin Harder’s announcement that CLAUS Studios will be at WonderCon this year. Look for him and his new Marvel-themed bedding at Booth #1328. Sure, you could go to Target later on, but wouldn’t you rather pick them up at the con?

  • Manga/anime artist Asia Ladowska has also opened her WonderCon commissions. According to her tweet, if you’d like a full-color commission from her, this is your only shot. Visit her website to see her rates and purchase a commission ticket.

  • Look for these new mini originals at Teatiger’s, aka: Morghan Gill’s, Table #D-36 in Artists Alley.

  • Artist Hai Nai Nu Salque, better known as Nooligan, is opening his WonderCon pre-commissions for 24 hours only beginning at 10AM PT on March 1. As he is a very specific artist, we highly recommend reading and following his rules outlined on his Commissions page.

  • Another artist who’s opened his commission list is Anaheim local Tom Hodges. See his Facebook post below for his rates and how to order. He also won’t be doing full-color commissions at the con.

  • Comic book writer and filmmaker Greg Pak tweeted that WCA will be his next convention of the 2019 season.

  • Comic artist JW Balsley announced via Twitter that he will be well-prepared for his WonderCon appearance in March.

  • If you love anime and are going to WonderCon this year, let Eleven Arts know you’ll be at their screening of Penguin Highway before it hits theaters.

  • Yin Yang Innovations announced via Twitter their latest issue of Oni will debut at WonderCon 2019. Visit them in Artists Alley at Table #D-22 to pick up your copy.

  • Some of us San Diego locals like to make the trek to Anaheim for WonderCon to warm up for SDCC later in the year. It looks like we’ll be sharing the I-5 with San Diego publishers IDW Publishing as we drive north.

  • Illustrator Jenny Park will have the power when she brings her She-Ra plush pillows with her to WonderCon 2019.
