WonderCon combines the worlds of comics and popular culture by offering attendees a chance to meet some of their favorite classic comics writers and artists, do some shopping, and see Hollywood stars up-close.
Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, signs autographs and meets with fans who waited patiently in a line that wound through the exhibition hall after purchasing $100 tickets.
This comic book artist at WonderCon said he takes a somewhat unconventional approach, foregoing big muscles, power, and gore. Rather, he said he uses comics as a vehicle for his pastels with vibrant colors.
DC cover artist Ryan Sook has illustrated Marvel Comics' "X-Factor" and worked on "Arkham Asylym: Living Hell," "The Spectre," "Hawkman," "Seven Soldiers: Zatanna," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," and "Angel."
The WonderCon exhibit hall showcases some of the biggest and best publishers in the country, including DC Comics, Dark Horse, Image, Top Cow, Aspen, IDW, Oni Press, Boom! Studios, SLG Publishing, and more.
The convention is a full weekend of comics, with fans able to see writers, publishers, artists, and film stars right alongside the classic comics themselves.
