Well, we made it – our last WonderPost for 2019. By this time tomorrow, we’ll all be wandering the Anaheim Convention Center exploring what looks to be a great WonderCon. We still have some news for you, so here’s one more WonderPost to help you navigate the convention. Want to know what’s up with Nooligan, toddland, and Justin Harder, among others? Then read on, fellow con warriors.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- The Comic Source Podcast will be at WonderCon 2019 with some epic swag. Not only will they give you a free lanyard if you find them, you’ll also have the chance to win a free iPad loaded with Batman comics if you find Jace at the convention. See their website for their official rules and how to enter.

- If you were worried artist Val Hochberg wouldn’t have any of her Critical Role art stocked after ECCC, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll find plenty of it at Table #F-57 in Artists’ Alley.
