It’s not every day a comic book convention up and moves itself into your backyard, even if only for a one-time gig. So when the San Francisco-based WonderCon relocated to Anaheim for this year only, Aspen Comics jumped at the opportunity to bring the full power of their awesomosity to bear on the convention!
Straight from Aspen Comics comes this great news for their fans:
With only a short distance to travel to this year’s Wonder Con 2012, Aspen Comics is planning to bring a large assortment of creators as well as new exclusive books only available at the Aspen Comics Booth #510. Aspen creators Frank Mastromauro, Peter Steigerwald, Vince Hernandez, Mark Roslan, Joe Benitez, J.T. Krul, David Wohl, Oliver Nome, Beth Sotelo, David Schwartz, Scott Lobdell and more surprise guests will be signing comics and meeting fans at the booth all weekend long.
Aspen is proud to launch their all-new miniseries Fathom: Kiani Volume Two at this year’s WonderCon. Fathom: Kiani centers on the popular Fathom heroine in a return to her own series in this brand-new storyline. The exclusive Fathom: Kiani #0 WonderCon 2012 edition features a cover by superstar artists Benitez and Steigerwald, and is limited to only 500 copies.
The duo of Benitez and Steigerwald are also debuting an all-new WonderCon 2012 edition cover to their red hot sellout, steampunk action-adventure book Lady Mechanika #0. Including a new original cover by the pair, Lady Mechanika #0 will be sure to follow in the footsteps of previous editions with a quick sell out and is only limited to 1500 editions. Fans are strongly encouraged to arrive early at the Aspen Comics Booth #510 to ensure their copy.

Aspen’s industry-leading line of art prints returns with all new covers and images from Aspen’s most popular series and characters including Fathom, Soulfire, Executive Assistant: Iris, Lady Mechanika and more. Aspen will also be releasing this year’s Aspen Tour Print, another item fans are strongly encouraged to pick up early as supplies last.
