WonderPost 2023: Bob’s Burgers Fan Meat-Up, Val Hochberg, Fanbase Press, Nick Kremenek, Elly Karipides

WonderCon will be here before you know it, and if you haven’t started your prep for the con, now is definitely the time. Luckily, Parks and Cons has created an On-Site Visual Guide to help orient you full of great tips and information. And once you’ve watched that, break out your spreadsheet or Notes app, and start writing down what you’ll want to buy on the show floor — like the adorable prints for The Last of UsThe Mandalorian, and more below.

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

  • This is the way. Artist Jin Yung Kim, also known as JYK All Day, revealed an original piece of Grogu. You may need to use the Force to get this one — or you may just need to hurry to Booth #A-06 in Artist Alley.

  • Artist Nick Kremenek, otherwise known as Dreamforger Studios, has been busy unveiling even more characters in his upcoming WonderCon limited edition poster. Today’s “monstrous” addition is an infected clicker from The Last of Us.

  • Stop by Booth #1204 this year to visit TwoMorrows, who will have a limited number of pre-release copies of several comics, including Alter Ego #181 and back issue #143 (Neal Adams tributes), Comic Book Creator #30, Jack Kirby Collector #86, RetroFan #26, and Destroyer Duck graphite Edition. You can find more of what they’ll be offering on their blog.
  • You shall not pass! Unless there’s catnip involved. Elly Karipides revealed a purr-fect Lord of the Rings and Dungeons & Dragons inspired original art piece, which will be available at Booth #C-44 in Artist Alley.
