WonderPost 2023: UCC Distributing, Victor Barreto, Jamie Sullivan

What are we going to do with all our free time after WonderCon news season ends? Why, focus on San Diego Comic-Con news season, of course! But first, we’ve got more news for you, like Star Wars Holiday Special and The Last of Us prints, Squishmallows, pins, authors, and more.

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

  • Artist Jeff Pina will be at #C-59 in Artist Alley, with new sketch covers, 5″x7″ originals, prints, and Nicholas Claus, The Warrior Saint, a book making its WonderCon debut. Whatever you’re into, Pina probably has an art option for it!
  • Everyone loves a free button! And you can score this The Golem of Venice Beach button for free when you stop by Small Press #SP-56.
