While Comic Con International (CCI) is best known for putting on San Diego Comic Con (SDCC), many fans on the West Coast look forward to WonderCon, CCI’s other big annual event. WonderCon is held in the Spring, with the next con scheduled for March 29-31, 2019 in Anaheim, CA. Many people compare WonderCon to SDCC in the early 2000s. There is definitely a Hollywood/studio presence, with films and television shows presenting to eager fans, along with a good-sized Exhibit Hall and Artists’ Alley. Of course, CCI also presents its usual well-rounded slate of pop-culture and comics-related panels.
Tickets for WonderCon 2019 are now on sale. To purchase, login to your Member ID account and click on the Registration Info tab. New this year: you do not have to login separately for each person in your group. One person can purchase multiple badges, as long as each badge is assigned to a Member ID at the time of purchase. For 2019, a Friday badge costs $30, a Saturday badge costs $35, and a Sunday badge costs $20, meaning that to attend all 3 days, fans will pay $85. As always with CCI, seniors, juniors (ages 13-17) and military are half price, and children 12 and under are free with a paying adult.
If you want to attend WonderCon, it doesn’t pay to linger. New this year, CCI has announced that badge prices will increase on February 14, 2019, and badges purchased after that time will not be mailed. Note that only attendees with US mailing addresses will have their badges mailed; international attendees will have to pick up their badges onsite.
