Join Fanboy Comics and SoCal’s Indie Creators at WonderCon 2016

The Fanboy Comics staff is very excited to be exhibiting one again at WonderCon 2016, alongside a number of other talented independent creators! Taking place from March 25-27, 2016, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the annual event is a celebration of comic books and pop culture that showcases the exceptional works of talented writers, artists, illustrators, and creators of all pop culture genres. Throughout the weekend, we will be reporting live from the convention floor, providing you with the coolest interviews, commentaries, screening details, and photos – along with meeting fans at the Fanboy Comics booth, where you can purchase all of FBC’s graphic novels!  Plus, Fanboy Comics’ staff and contributors will be participating in quite a few intriguing panels throughout the weekend that you will not want to miss!

Fans in attendance will have a chance to stop by the Fanboy Comics booth in the Small Press area (SP-052) to meet the creators of the graphic novels Penguins vs. Possums, The Arcs, Something Animal, Identity Thief, and Fearworms: Selected Poems!  In addition, co-hosts Dr. Andrea Letamendi and Brian Ward of the critically acclaimed podcast, The Arkham Sessions, will be on hand to meet listeners and field questions about Batman: The Animated Series!  (Fanboy Comics’ creator signing schedule may be found below.) As a special treat, Fanboy Comics will be selling PVP Minis, select art prints, and the official Fanboy Comics t-shirt, so that attendees may show their geek pride in style.
