WonderCon 2016 Recap


WonderCon 2016 is just 6 short weeks away (March 25–27 at the Los Angeles Convention Center), and we want to make sure you’re getting all of our latest updates, so periodically we’ll post a summary here on Toucan with links to the latest WC news and postings!

Program Previews

We’ve launched our special “Programming Preview” feature in advance of our complete WonderCon 2016 Program Schedule going live (about 2 weeks before the show). Our first two previews include the Warner Bros. Animation/DC Universe World Premiere movie event, Justice League vs. Teen Titans, exclusively at WonderCon, and the preliminary schedule for the Comics Arts Conference. Click on the links to see these posts, and look for new posts each "WonderCon Wednesday," leading up to the launch of the complete schedule!

Comic Creator Connection

We’ve also updated the WonderCon Comic Creator Connection page with info on how you can sign up for this year’s event. If you’re a comics writer or artist looking to collaborate with someone, this is the program for you, but make sure you sign up in advance. Click here for complete info!


We’ve updated our Games page with a preliminary list of sanctioned tournaments and game demonstrations from companies. Click here to visit the WonderCon Games page.


You can pre-pay for parking at the Los Angeles Convention Center, while space is available. Click here to visit the WonderCon Parking page for complete details.


Badges are still available, but they’re going fast! We recommend the 3-day option, so you can experience all WonderCon has to offer. Remember that WonderCon Badges will NOT be sold onsite; if you want to go to WonderCon you have to buy your badges online. Click here to buy WonderCon 2016 Badges!


Some of the nine hotels that are part of the WonderCon block are already sold out; others still have availability. Click here to reserve a hotel room for WonderCon 2016! Trust us … you’re going to want to take advantage of the long Easter weekend (March 25–27) and the low hotel rates and join us for all three days!

  • Exclusives
  • Autograph Area
  • 30 days of WonderCon 2016 Toucan Tips (starting Wed., Feb. 24!)
