Following up on the recently passed ECCC, IDW has another packed lineup ready for Anaheim’s biggest con.
Ah convention ‘season’, when it feels like there’s a big show pretty much every month… and sometimes week. Case in point, we just wrapped up with ECCC in Seattle and now the dawn of yet another Wondercon is right around the corner. Like, right around the corner, as in tomorrow through Sunday.
As you might imagine, there’ll be a ton of exhibitors on hand to show off their wares and hold panel presentations, as well as signings in the booths. And you better believe that IDW is set to be one of them, as the company has a pretty terrific lineup of books on the racks currently with both classic and all-new properties to talk about.
