Dark Horse Comics is headed to Wondercon with a loaded schedule

The publishing giant brings a full slate to the Anaheim con with plenty of signings and panels.

Dark Horse always does a great job at these shows and Wondercon is no different than Emerald City, or the big CC’s in NY and San Diego. The publisher, which has to be the largest independent publishing house in the comic book industry these days, will be bringing the likes of big talent like Gail Simone (Tomb Raider) to the signing tables and some very impressive panels for fans to take in to the conference rooms. Don’t forget about the special edition books either as Dark Horse will have variants of a bunch of their best current comics on hand (while supplies last), with sales for the variant edition of The Witcher going to benefit Sharon and (artist) Stan Sakai.

Wondercon might take a back seat to San Diego when you’re talking about California Comic Cons, but it’s no slouch. The Con pulls in tons of fans from across the state and beyond, and is a pinnacle event for the city of Anaheim. Here’s your full rundown of what Dark Horse will have on hand at the show:
