WonderPost 2022: Contest, Patrick Ballesteros, Monkey Minion Press, JYK All Day, Jeff Pina

The day when we can say, “Yes, WonderCon badges are on sale!” grows nearer — but that day is not today. However, while you wait, we’ve got plenty of news for you including panels, exhibitors, and more. You’ll get a chance to win badges to WonderCon, and first looks at new prints on your favorite superheroes and their pets, a man who is totally not hugging an Eagle, and some rivals ready to take each other on.

Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:

  • Want to attend WonderCon? At this exact moment, this contest from the San Diego Reader is your only option (at least until, y’know, badges go on sale soon). But you could win a pair of 3-day badges to the convention, for free, simply by entering on their website by Monday, March 21 at 1PM.

  • Do you really wanna, do you really wanna taste it? Break out your dance moves and get a taste of artist Patrick Ballesteros’ Peacemaker print heading to WonderCon. We’ll have the full look on our site closer to the con (but as someone who has seen the full thing, it is WORTH the wait).

  • Even Dark Knights love their four-legged friends. Artist Jin Yung Kim, also known as JYK All Day, pays tribute to Batman Beyond‘s Bruce Wayne and his trusty dog Ace in a new sticker. It will be available in his online shop soon, but if you’re at WonderCon, you can pick it up in person.

  • Get your game face on, because Ross Thompson, Head of Trade Marketing for Steamforged Games, revealed that he will have several tabletop panels at the con.

  • Our friends at Monkey Minion Press are always dreaming up new artwork to take us to new galaxies, back in time to when dinosaurs roamed the earth, or even just to a world where birds are a bit more adorable. You can pick up some of their out-of-this-world-amazing art at several conventions in 2022, including WonderCon and San Diego Comic-Con.

  • Filipino-American comics company Diwata Komiks’ Co-Founder, Mark A.J. Nazal, will be featured on not one, but two panels at WonderCon this year. While there’s no details on day/time, the panels will focus on diversity and celebrating BIPOC and LGBTQ+ voices.

  • Is it even a WonderPost if we aren’t showing you one of Jeff Pina’s latest prints he’ll be bringing to WonderCon? This time it’s a the Punisher, ready for a fight (but when isn’t he?) — and Daredevil ready to take him on. Then, Supergirl takes to the sky in another new print.

  • Over in Artists Alley, you’ll be able to find David Baron, creator/writer of Stained and Cobblestone Chronicles.

  • ARG! Cartoon Animation shared that the animated short Taffy the Pink Hippopotamus will premiere at WonderCon on Saturday, April 2, as part of the Los Angeles International Children’s Film Festival.
