Better late than never! ChinaShop was severely backlogged due to SXSW and Fashion Week coverage, and so my WonderCon post has gone up today. But that’s a good thing! Because now, I can have your attention all to myself! HA!
Yeah, that’s it. This was all part of my DASTARDLY PLAN. Ahem. Here’s an excerpt from “WonderCon 2012: Comic-Con International Comes to Anaheim.”
This was a first for WonderCon, which usually takes place in San Francisco. Renovations at the Moscone Center necessitated the move, but allowed those in the Los Angeles area easier access to SDCC’s sister convention, giving more L.A. geeks the chance to attend a well-run show with a great track record closer to home. It’s surprising that, despite L.A’s large and active geek community, not to mention all the high-profile geeks that live here, that they have so few conventions that cater specifically to the L.A. market. While it’s likely that WonderCon will return to the Moscone next year, I’m curious about the numbers and whether or not the show had more or less traffic this year. (Official numbers have yet to be released) It would be great if Comic-Con International spread the con love all over California. SDCC in San Diego, APE in San Francisco, and WonderCon in Anaheim would be a nice spread.
