WonderPost 2023: Elly Karipides, Megan Porch, Power Rangers, Görkem Demir

In less than two weeks time WonderCon 2023 will be in full swing. You’ve seen the exhibitor list and map. You’ve scanned the panels schedule. You even have penciled in some offsite time.

What else is there? Oh, plenty, my friend, PLEN-TY! Stickers, prints, roly-poly kitties with droids and so much more.

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

  • Why did the attendee cross the aisle? To get to the chicken shirt, obviously. Megan Porch will have very limited quantities of this new shirt at her booth, Artist Alley #C-62. There will be “mush” more at Megan’s booth, including these brand new stickers and her signature tote.

  • Sizzling circuits! Artist Jeff Pina isn’t done making prints yet! He’ll have Mega Man at his booth, Artist Alley #C-59.
