WonderCon is fast approaching, and each day we’re learning more and more of what you can expect to find at the convention. Today, we’ve got updates on which cast members of Dark Phoenix will be in attendance, how to score autographs from the writer of The Last Unicorn and more, and even how to get a commission from Neal Adams.
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- Wunderkind Ethan Castillo has shared that he will have at least one Batman blank cover for sale at his table at WonderCon. You can find it and all of Ethan’s work at Artist Alley Table #A-54.

- Orlando based artist Charles Thurston will be at WonderCon and will have prints of this stunning and colorful Gremlins paper cut piece available at WonderCon. Don’t get them wet!
- The Utensil Company showed off another cool item they will have at WonderCon, a nifty looking Star Wars Stormtrooper mug. Not attending WonderCon? You can snag it online April 1.
- Southern California artist Lan Wang showed a few examples of the commissions he will be offering at WonderCon. Looks like you’ll want to hit him up early, they are first come, first served.
- Stuart Ng Books, specializing in rare and out of print editions, is hosting a signing for Disney comic artist Daan Jippes at the convention. This is the one and only U.S. convention that Jippes will be attending, making this a “must do” for Disney fans.

- Looking for a commission from the legendary Neal Adams? Now is your chance! Adams is currently taking commissions for both WonderCon and C2E2, so get on the list now.
- Speaking of commissions, artist Brett Bean is offering pre-commission slots. Each 7″x10″ commission is $150, and you can order yours now.
- Harley Quinn would probably do pretty well for herself in The Walking Dead universe. Artist Tobias Gebhardt reimagined her as Negan in this cool print, which will be available at WonderCon at Artist Alley Table F-13.
- Buttons, buttons, whose got the buttons? Jaime Ugarte and Gabby Zapata, apparently! Ugarte showed off some of the adorable buttons they’ll have for sale at the convention.
- Zapata will also have some unique, handmade earrings for sale at her booth as well.
I’ll have very limited quantities of my handmade earrings this #wondercon ! ✨✨✨🥰 pic.twitter.com/qH6NwD6McI
