Yesterday we posted some news on San Diego Comic-Con, which was mostly met with a chorus of, “But what about WonderCon?”. The good news is, Comic-Con International has heard your cries (or we just had really good timing), and also finally sent out confirmations to vendors for WonderCon as well yesterday afternoon, meaning we now have a slew of WonderCon announcements for you today as well!
We are just 51 days away from the Anaheim convention (scheduled for April 1-3, 2022), and while we don’t have an answer to, “But when are badges/hotels going up?”, we do have some pieces of the puzzle!
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- It’s happening, guys! It’s really happening! Artist Patrick Ballesteros confirmed he received his placement for WonderCon Anaheim 2022.
Confirmed for Wondercon! See you all there! pic.twitter.com/IYDZkKBhR8

- Symbiote Studios have big plans for WonderCon this year, with new merch for My Little Pony and Transformers, as well as some Rivals of Aether plush being announced on opening night. We have missed our daily dose of Rock-Paper-Scissors at their booth!
We stole this image from our friends at @toddlandstore (clears throat) We will be attending Wondercon with awesome new merch. Big @RivalsOfAether plush everyone has been waiting for to be announced by @StudiosofAether on opening night. Also new MLP and Transformers products. pic.twitter.com/sdu4S0vk7j
