At a time when conventions, publishers, comic and pop culture talent and guests are being incredibly cautious about making the journey to attend conventions across the globe – and as the concerns and fears over coronavirus continue to grow – there is something to admire about hoping for the best, muscling through and hoping that the Powers That Be can get the situation under control before the entire year is an utter wash.
While Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle is looking at a massive exodus of guests and talent next weekend, CCI’s WonderCon Anaheim – set to take over the Anaheim Convention Center over the weekend of Friday 10th to Sunday 12th April – is still preparing for a huge event, boisterously announcing the attendance from the likes of Funko, Funimation, Toynami, DC Comics, IDW Publishing, Skybound and BOOM! Studios. Bold stuff.
BOOM! themselves have released details of what they’re bringing to the party, including panel listings, signing details and an update on a whole new shiny booth – exciting stuff.
(Not to be a nervous nelly or anything but a lot can happen in the space of a month. We’ll let you know if anything changes in regards to any of this – and, of course, keep an eye on our social media for all the latest updates. And wash yer bleedin’ hands!!)
