Though crowded, it certainly feels more low-key and less frenzied than the San Diego Comic-Con — it's a little more comics-friendly and less-Hollywood centric.
Partly because my production schedule is geared towards the San Diego convention, I have not gotten my act together and exhibited at WonderCon, though it’s certainly closer to me than San Diego and fellow publishers have told me it’s a good show.
Regardless, it was fun attending as a “civilian” with my family. In fact, this is the first time in decades I was able to methodically go up and down each aisle of a convention and see the entire floor. For some reason, I’ve lost my patience for sitting through panels, but this year, I sat through DC’s 52 panel, primarily because my wife and two young children wanted to be sure they got a seat for the panel that followed on the new Teen Titans animated show. (They were squeezed out of a presentation last year they wanted to attend.)
Below are some pics from the show.
