WonderCon 2012: The Wrap Up

Michael Wirth 03/19/2012 Reviews

WonderCon was an absolute trip this year. We had a literal flood of news coming out of the Anaheim, CA show, so much so that we had a difficult time keeping up with it all. It’s a good thing we had a few Leprechauns hanging around for Saturday’s Saint Patrick’s Day party that we were able to put them to work and get ourselves caught up on everything that was going down. In case you missed any of it, here’s the skinny from WonderCon 2012.

DC Comics talks the future of its line, including Batman: Earth One, Rob Liefeld’s new role with the company, and a plethora of Digital First series including Smallville Season 11 and Batman Beyond Unlimited and so, so much more in the DC All Access panel.

What do Jason, Critters, and Marvel Comics’ Punisher have in common? They’ve all been to space. Well, not yet for the Punisher, but he’s on his way there.

A new series. A new movie. A new video game. A new cartoon series. What’s left for the Amazing Spider-Man?

Warner Brothers promotes this summer’s The Dark Knight Rises with a set of Converse sneakers, t-shirts, and other apparel.

IDW Publishing announced that Renae de Liz’s Womanthology will become a monthly ongoing series.

Mark Waid decides to make the move to digital and will be selling off his astounding collection of comics.

Fans got to check out the newest trailers for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Prometheus.

Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart talked about the making of Snow White and the Huntsman.

Vertigo had plenty of stuff to show off at their New Blood panel.

J. Michael Straczynski gives a bit of insight into the upcoming Before Watchmen project, and Jim Lee shows off his variant cover for Nite Owl #1.

Felicia Day, Wil Wheaton, and Dark Horse Comics team up to bring to life a new YouTube channel titled Geek & Sundry, which will feature a wide range of programming for every type of geek.

Viral advertising is the way of the future as both Prometheus and The Amazing Spider-Man go to great lengths to be clever and recognizable at the same time.

Fan got a special sneak peek of an upcoming episode of Cartoon Network’s Green Lantern: The Animated Series.

Just how much zombie-related goodness can we expect in the near future? Lots.

What a weekend it’s been! With all of the craziness of WonderCon now behind us, we can all take a minute and catch our collective breaths…that is, until the start of Emerald City Comic Con on March 30th. But given all of the announcements made this past weekend, what’s left to show at Seattle? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
