WonderCon Moves To Anaheim For 2012

Southern California residents are ridiculously spoiled. Forget about the virtually perfect weather every single day, in terms of massive pop culture gatherings alone, there’s an embarrassment of riches. And next year it just gets bigger.

We already have San Diego Comic-Con, the granddaddy of them all, the kind of convention so massive it makes every other one pale in comparison. We also have E3, one of the most important video game conventions in the world. Now we also have the D23 Expo, Disney’s very own fan convention, which just completed its second year.

And next year, just to add insult to injury, Southern California is stealing a comic book convention from our friends in the Bay Area. WonderCon, long a staple of the San Francisco area, is moving to Anaheim on March 16-18, 2012. Read why after the jump. Read More »
