WonderPost 2024: Val Hochberg, Tom Ruegger, Josey Tsao, Megan Porch

We are exactly one week out from “WonderCon Eve” and hopefully all your cosplay plans have come together and you are ready for three days of panels, shopping, seeing old friends and making new ones. We’ve got some great news today, including some Val Hochberg originals, prints that straddle the line between spooky and sexy, a slew of stickers and so much more you can expect to see next week in Anaheim.

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

  • If you’re a maniac for the Animaniacs then we’ve got some “Faboo” news for you! Creator Tom Ruegger will be tabling a the Choice Fine Art Booth, #2008. He’ll be signing autographs, doing commissions and have a selection of animation cels to browse.

  • Cute stickers and adorable keychains abound at the Okeya Stationery Co, who will be at booth #1366. This is their first time at WonderCon so let’s make it an event to remember for them.
