Nerd heaven: Wonder Con is the warm up for the big one, Comic Con
Nerd alert: Badges are on sale now for the WonderCon in Anaheim March 31-April 2. Check out www.comic-con.org/.
But you know what that means, don’t you? The big event isn’t far behind--Comic Con International San Diego, slated for July 19-23, 2017.
The 2016 Comic Con was a smashing success for the 150,000 guests who attended and the countless thousands who roamed the Gas Lamp District and Convention Center areas. Myriads of cos players (folks wearing the costume of their favorite heroes, villains or comic book characters) were in their creative glory and strutted their stuff in spite of the sweltering heat.
Special events included the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Star Trek at Comic Con. Those playing Pokémon Go managed to get through the event without running into trains or hungry Walking Dead. All in all another spectacular event for people of all ages who enjoyed a weekend of fantasy and good cheer.
