First, for those asking: Yes, WonderCon Anaheim 2020 is currently still happening. Although many creators, artists, and exhibitors have currently pulled out of Emerald City Comic Con (although that convention is at present still happening), WonderCon is (at least for now) a different beast. In a recent article to TVLine, a Comic-Con International spokesman told the outlet that they are “working with local officials as it pertains to the COVID-19 situation and continue[sic] to monitor developments closely” for both WonderCon Anaheim and San Diego Comic-Con 2020. Any updates likely won’t happen for a few more weeks. Until then, we urge you to stay calm, but also to make any decisions that make sense for you.
So, for now, it’s business as usual. Which means we can still get excited about updates like this one, from BOOM! Studios, who unveiled their panel and signings schedule. You can catch BOOM! at Booth #1209 all week, as well as in various panels, with several creators and actors including Power Rangers cast, Brian Azzarello, Carly Usdin, Ryan Parrott, and more.
There will also be exclusives, including this Faithless II variant cover with cover art by María Llovet. According to Comic Book Resources, who revealed the cover, the cardstock cover exclusive is limited to 100 copies, with a purchase limit of one per person. It will retail for $100.
Now, let’s take a gander at their panel schedule:
