If you live in Southern California and you love comic books or pop culture, there’s a good chance you’ll already be attending Wondercon, which is taking over the Anaheim Convention Center from March 16 to 18. But if you really need added incentive, then why don’t you come see ME, because I’ll be holding down a lil’ table (AA-121) in Artist Alley the entire weekend. And I’m bringing some special, Wondercon-exclusive stuff with me.
Normally, this annual convention is held in San Francisco, as it was last time I attended (just as a pro, not as an exhibitor) in 2009. But its home, Moscone Center, is undergoing renovations, so the Comic-Con folks temporarily relocated the event to Anaheim for this year. This had a lot of people up north grumbling (and indirectly led Image Comics to host its own convention in the Bay Area instead), but on the flip side, for those of us closer to SoCal, it worked out better (or at least cheaper for travel). So … I’ll be there.
In addition to bringing the usual selection of comics and trades from Pop! Goes the Icon, I’ll probably also have available original artwork and a selection of limited-edition prints from my new mash-up collection. But most importantly? I’m offering EXCLUSIVELY AT WONDER-CON a special ashcan comic featuring a preview of the forthcoming sequel to The Utopian, Foundation.
There are only 50 copies being printed and the only place to get them will be at my table at Wondercon. The comic debuts online April 15, but those lucky (unlucky?) 50 people get to read the first 10 strips a month in advance if they pick up this sucker.
So there you go. Come on down, see some movie and comic stars, wear a silly costume, and hang out with me (and buy stuff). It’ll be a good time.
