I can never miss a WonderCon! From Los Angeles to Anaheim, I have made my journey to this convention of comic books, animation, costumes, TV, and movies. This year’s WonderCon lasted from March 23 – 25. In addition, the Anaheim Convention Center greeted its attendees with a new change – expansion of a new building near the Area! This wonderful addition allowed for more space to attend activities and programs. After all, there is so much to see and do for both new and returning fans, this addition for the thousands of visitors was a welcome change.
Just like previous WonderCons, the blood drive and Masquerade completion for cosplayers returned. There were panels for people’s fave shows, autograph signings in the convention hall, and educational lectures on those who want to follow their own aspirations in writing or animation. Endless comic books, anime products, and costumes abounded in the never-ending booths.

Of course, you know I love TV and movies! Where else can fans of their fave shows go celebrate and perhaps catch a glimpse of their hero in real life? Previews and panels of TV shows and movies this year included Reverie, Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger, The 100, The Expanse, Constantine, Lucifer, Black Lightning, Siren, SuperMansion, NBC’s Timeless, Syfy Krypton, Bad Samaritan, A Series of Unfortunate Events, LEGO DC Super Hero Girls: Super Villain High, Into the Badlands, Final Space, Teen Titans Go! and Unikitty. Classics such as Star Trek, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Power Rangers, Back to the Future and X-Men were revisited in discussions.
Couldn’t make Wonder Con this year? No worries, you can go next year on March 29-31, 2019!
I end my yearly WonderCon update with a quote by the great Stan Lee: “I am very lucky because everything that I do is exciting to me. It’s always new.”
