Bongo Blog

As you may know, this past weekend Bongo was in attendance at WonderCon in (mostly) sunny Anaheim, California.


FRIDAY: The convention hit the ground running, with surprisingly full attendance. Thank goodness for nerds playing hooky! 


SATURDAY: Con-goers continued to show up in full force, braving the uncharacteristic torrential rain. The Bongo panel was held in the afternoon, with Bill Morrison, Terry Delegeane, and Jason Ho (standing in for Nathan Kane) hamming it up for the fans, while giving them a sneak peek at upcoming comics and explaining how the whole creative process comes together at Bongo HQ.


SUNDAY: The skies cleared, and we were back to sunny weather. It was so sunny, we barely noticed the bone-chilling winds as we ran into the convention center, desperately seeking shelter. The show was packed right up until it closed, and the Bongo staff got to meet tons of fans face-to-face. 


VERDICT: We sold funny books, we shook hands, we made friends, and we spent all our pocket money on artsy sketchbooks, obscure action figures, and dorky t-shirts. In short, WonderCon was a rousing success!


Big thanks to everyone who stopped by the Bongo booth to pick up a few comics, get a sketch, or just say hi...and a special thanks to the folks who showed up to the panel!


It’s been over six years since Bongo Comics attended WonderCon…but we’re back, baby!


Join up with Team Bongo in the hallowed halls of the Anaheim Convention Center from March 16-18. You can find us at our booth (#403) just inside the center entrance, where we will meet all your Simpsons and Futurama comics needs. Why not stop by, share a laugh, grab some autographs, and request a sketch of Sideshow Raheem?


Also, check out our fan-friendly Bongo Comics Sneak Peak panel on Saturday, March 17, in Room 203AB from 2:00-3:00. Not only will we preview everything that’s coming soon from Bongo, but if you’re lucky, former Creative Director Bill Morrison and new Creative Director Nathan Kane may even throw down in a Triskelion fashion grudge match.


Now, that's decision making, Bongo style!
