Panel updates, prints featuring everyone from Spider-Man to Bridgerton, and booth signings — oh my! WonderCon is less than two weeks away, and we’ve got another jam-packed WonderPost for you today with all the updates.
Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:
- The complete WonderCon programming schedule is out now! However, something is a afoot — when the schedule was originally posted, every single panel was listed as a “Virtual Event”. Since then, that tag has been removed from all panels. However, we’ve confirmed with moderator Tara Bennett that Fear the Walking Dead at least will be pre-recorded. So what does that mean? Well, it would appear that at least one panel is virtual rather than in-person, but there’s nothing currently on the schedule to indicate which is which. Which is… not amazing? Hopefully Comic-Con International corrects this soon.
An in-person/virtual @WonderCon is happening this year. If you're attending one way or another & love @FearTWD, check out the virtual panel I moderate with the EPs and cast. I can tease there is LOT to see 👀#FeartheWalkingDead #WonderCon pic.twitter.com/oswtkCeFlk— Tara Bennett (@TaraDBennett) March 18, 2022
- Also worth noting from yesterday’s schedule release: Unfortunately, the Scott Shaw! panel has been cancelled.
- Artist Chris Uminga is working up something cool and unique for WonderCon attendees. What could it be? We’ll have to stay tuned to find out.
