This was our third year exhibiting at WonderCon and we’ve been excited to watch the show grow year after year. Don’t take my “little sister” comment the wrong way. The show is just younger, and about 1/3 the size of San Diego (Let’s face it EVERYTHING is dwarfed by SDCC). But by no means is this a rinky-dink convention – the comic publishers, movie studios, autograph dealing celebrities, 501st Legion were all there… And if what we witnessed from the show floor is any indication – there was a surge in fan attendance this year!
Panels from DC Comics, Chuck, Kick-Ass seemed to dominate conversation on the floor, there was a huge outdoor promo for Tron on Friday night, and a lot of demand for preview screenings of the new Doctor Who and Kick-Ass… But being exhibitors we have absolutely ZERO to report about anything more than 10 feet from our booth.
But we can tell you that we had a blast in our little 10×10 space! We debuted several new images that I’ll share in upcoming posts, got visited by a lot of returning customers, met some Twitter pals in person, and met tons of great fans and professionals – including our neighbors at the Capcom and Retro Rebel, as well as visits from G4’s Chris Gore and Zombie author Max Brooks! (each of those visits gets a seperat post coming up).
It really is more to talk about than just one post… so stay tuned for more…
