On today's Side Quest, the OSN crew goes to WonderCon 2016 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
On the first day of the convention we got to see the opening ceremony which featured the mayor of Los Angeles, Mayor Villaraigosa who was very excited to be hosting WonderCon in the city of LA. He spoke a little bit about his love for comic books as well as future plans for hotel development near the convention center to help attract large scale conventions to Los Angeles. Let's keep our fingers crossed for LA Comic-Con in the future.
The next day of WonderCon began with the DC:Universe Rebirth event which was live streamed here for those who have missed it. The room was packed to full capacity with excited DC fans waiting for the next chapter for our beloved DCU characters. I have to say I was not disappointed in the least. From the way that everyone spoke about each and every rebirth title with excitement and passion, to the concept and design with amazing art to the gift to the fans of lowering the price of every rebirth title to $2.99 everything was amazing. I may have walked into the panel tired and sleepy, but afterwards I walked out excited and full of hope for the upcoming Rebirth titles slated for May and June.
On the last day of WonderCon, before I left the convention center I got to catch the encore screening of Justice League vs. Teen Titans at the Microsoft Theater. The movie was in my eyes well done and very entertaining if crowds cheers and laughter were anything to go by. WonderCon may be a smaller con than San Diego Comic-Con, but don't let that fool you into thinking that you will not be getting your moneys worth for your badge. It is a very fun and enjoyable experience for comic book fans of all ages and levels so go check it out next year at the Anaheim Convention Center from March 31- April 2.
See you next year!
