Tickets are still available for 2014's WonderCon Anaheim, but apparently they're going fast.

The pop culture expo, taking place April 18-20, is put on by the same folks behind San Diego International Comic-Con and recently made the move to the Anaheim Convention Center from the Bay Area to accommodate more fans. As the Con has grown, so has its roster of movie and television panels, comic previews, autograph sessions, book-signings, and screenings.

Fan Expo Canada is Better than San Diego Comic Con. There, We Said It.

Where: Toronto, ON, Canada
August 26, 2013 at 5:30 PM | by | Comments (0)

After spending this last weekend at Fan Expo Canada, we've learned that bigger isn't always better. Here are some of the clear advantages Fan Expo has over San Diego Comic-Con:

· Less Waiting
Being used to the mega-lines at San Diego Comic-Con, where fans start queuing up the night before, we were panicked when we arrived at our first Fan Expo panel a mere two hours early. The panic quickly subsided once we arrived to find only two fans in line early. This ended up being normal for the panels, leaving plenty of time to enjoy other events and the rest of the conference.

San Diego Comic-Con Finally Has Something for Foodies

July 18, 2013 at 3:06 PM | by | Comments (0)

For the first time foodies are getting their own panel at San Diego Comic-Con. A Feast For Your Eyes: Creativity In Comics and Cuisine will bring together 5 panelists to discuss the similarities in the creative processes of artists and chefs.

The panel's official description reads, "Cooking is creativity. Food is art. In so many ways, the connections between food and comics on a creative level are everywhere. A chef's knife is the equivalent of an artist's pencil or brush. Their kitchens are their canvases. Both chefs and artists are only limited by their own imaginations; they both use their tools to take what is in their minds and create masterpieces in different mediums. But the processes are the same, and that's what panelists will be exploring in this open discussion."
