WonderPost 2022: JYK All Day, Toddland, X-Men Fandom, Comic Creator Connection

We are less than three weeks away from WonderCon Anaheim 2022, and the big (sister) show will be here before we know it. Badges are still available (just go to your Member ID) for what is sure to be an awesome weekend of exclusives, artwork, panels, cosplay, and more!

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

  • Get your gaming accessories on with Thornhill Gaming, who are excited to be exhibiting at the convention for the first time. Stop by to give them a warm welcome (and to pick up some tabletop and dice accessories!).

  • Illustrator Megan Porch is heading to WonderCon, and she’s bringing what looks like some fun-guys with her (we’re not sorry). She will have this adorable mushroom tote for purchase at the con. This is a bag that really looks like it has so mushroom for all your belongings (still not sorry).

  • I am vengeance! I am the night! I am… artist Jin Yung Kim (also known as JYK All Day)’s latest WonderCon exclusive Batman print! To go along with his new Batman Beyond sticker, JYK has also created a mini print headed to the con.

  • But wait! There’s more! JYK All Day also showed off his latest “Pop Wagon” print, part of a series which features food trucks based on some of your favorite pop culture. His latest print features a “Short ‘N’ Sweet Cafe” and is dedicated to Pixar’s beloved short films, with many of your favorite Pixar shorts characters featured. You can pick it up, and more, at Artists Alley #A-9.

  • Artist Don Nguyen, best known as the creator of Pablo the Gorilla, will be exhibiting at WonderCon Artist Alley #B-50 — and he’s also shared where many of his friends can be found on the show floor. While we’re still waiting for the full exhibitor map, this is a good start for many favorites!

  • We’ll be able to share more details about what our friends at Toddland have hidden under their beards with you soon, but for now, they’ve given fans a sneak peek at one of this year’s Bob’s Burgers WonderCon pin sets. Can you guess what the next set will be? Keep an eye on their social media for your chance to guess.

Like this chance, right here:

  • After giving fans an awesome X-Men print at the Comic-Con Special Edition panel, X-Reads Podcast and House of X Podcast have a new and exciting bonus for X-Men fans. For those who attend the X-Men Fandom Panel (exact date/time/room still TBA), if you are one of the first 300 people in attendance, you will get to take home this snazzy Minster Sinister print by artist Luciano Vecchio. Now that is an x-citing piece of swag.

  • Phantasmic, a curator of “fantastical art and design influenced by manga, anime, film, sci- fi, fantasy, horror”, and more, will have their latest art books on hand at WonderCon. Head on over to Booth #2137 to check out all their offerings.

  • Get your game face on, game developers, because the annual Gaming Creator Connection is back. WonderCon will once again be hosting the GCC, where aspiring game developers can mingle with seasoned veterans of the game industry for advice and expert guidance. You can apply now to participate in the Saturday, April 2 GCC, which will be held from 2pm-4pm PT. Find more information on CCI’s site.

  • Comic Creators can also get in on the action, as the annual WonderCon Comic Creator Connection is also back. The comics networking event will take place on Friday, April 1 and Saturday, April 2 from 7pm-9pm PT in Room 204C. Exact details on what to bring with you to the event can be found on CCI’s site.

  • Artist Priscilla Wilson, also known as Valor & Vellum, has awesome new exclusives for you at WonderCon — and they are official exclusives. They have a sticker and everything, see?

  • If artist Jeff Pina doesn’t have new prints to show off for you, is it even a proper WonderPost? Luckily for us, he’s been busy making brand new art for you, in the form of Disney’s The Black Hole and Sailor Moon.

  • Geek style brand Hero Within also had a sneak peek to share off, that they tagged with #Godzilla. Coming soon to WonderCon — after it finishes destroying a few cities first.
