We are one week (and a little more daylight in some places) closer to WonderCon 2020. As of publication time, WonderCon is proceeding as normal: therefore we will be proceeding as normal, bringing you all the news that our intrepid researchers can dig up. Today we have a few more art peeks from Ethan Castillo, Jeff Pina’s new graphic novel, enchanting art from Rachel Reed, alternative movie posters from Nick Kremenek, and so much more.
Let’s take a look at the news you might have missed:
- The creators of Zombie Gnomes have been BUSY! They gave us a little peek inside their workshop and are bringing all these fun and freaky creatures to WonderCon in April.

- Friend of the UBlog, Patrick Ballesteros, is chugging right along, adding this George Perez inspired Nightwing original to the plethora of originals he’ll have available during WonderCon.
I always loved George Perez’s original NightWing Design, affectionately known as “Disco NightWing” among me and my friends. My ultimate goal is to have my son cosplay as him one year, that would be epic 😂.
