About This Event:

"Northern California's most popular comics and pop culture event"

Since 1987, WonderCon has been the Bay Area's biggest comics convention event. As the smaller, more comics and sci-fi-centric sibling of the summer's San Diego Comic-Con International, WonderCon attracts a solid crowd of comics and sci-fi fans, who come for the exclusive movie premieres, celebrity autograph sessions and the opportunity to meet their favorite comics artists, writers and creators.

For the 2012 show, Wondercon is relocating to Southern California, due to construction at Moscone Center.
