    Start Spring Off Right with the Return of WonderCon!

    WonderCon, one of the country's best comics conventions returns to Moscone Center South in San Francisco April 2–4. WonderCon 2010 offers the perfect Spring Break getaway over the long Easter holiday weekend, and it's made even better with the special WonderCon room rate at our headquarters hotel, the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. Book a room at this fabulous hotel—located just a short walk from Moscone Center South—at the super low rate of only $109/night (single/double occupancy; click here for details). This year WonderCon will also host an evening game room and a convention hospitality suite open to all attendees at our headquarters hotel (just be sure to bring your badge for entry!). See the article below for more info on these great new additions to the WonderCon experience!

    An amazing roster of special guests from the worlds of comics and science fiction/fantasy will be a major highlight for fans at WonderCon 2010. The guest list includes comics legends Murphy Anderson, Sergio Aragon├ęs, and Joe Kubert along with some of the superstars of today's most popular comics, including Frank Cho, Amanda Conner, Darwyn Cooke, Colleen Doran, David Finch, Adam Hughes, Geoff Johns, Adam Kubert, Jimmy Palmiotti, Darick Robertson, James Robinson, Greg Rucka, Gail Simone, Ethan Van Sciver, and Judd Winick. In addition, science fiction/fantasy authors Peter S. Beagle and Tim Powers join the event, along with WonderCon moderator supreme—and comics historian and writer—Mark Evanier.
