Comic Convention Season is in full swing. There have been several already this year. We just visited Chicago to give you guys coverage for C2E2 and this week we are preparing for WonderCon taking place in San Francisco. 

No Caption Provided
Besides the coverage you've come to expect from us such as interviews with your favorite creators, video tours of the convention floor, live blogging during panels and more Off THEIR Minds, we'll be doing something a little different this year as well.   
 == TEASER == 
If you've had a chance to check out the programming guide or caught the last bit of Comic Vine's segment during our Live Happy Hour Show, you know what I'm talking about. Comic Vine has been invited to participate in two panels.  
 
No Caption Provided

Friday 4:00-5:00 Spotlight on Adam Hughes— WonderCon special guest Adam Hughes is the mega-popular artist of so many memorable covers on series such as Wonder Woman and Catwoman, and a fan-favorite for commission work in Artists' Alleys at conventions all over this great land of ours. He talks about his art and career with moderator Sara Lima (editor, ComicVine.com). Room 103

Saturday 10:30-11:30 Spotlight on Francis Manapul— WonderCon special guest Francis Manapul helped bring back Superboy and now draws The Flash. Join him and his friends in a discussion about his art as well as his adventures on the TV show Beast Legends in a Q&A style fashion panel. Moderated by other industry stars such as artist Joel Gomez (The Authority), writer Sterling Gates (Supergirl), and Comic Vine's Tony Guerrero and Sara Lima. Room 254/256


If you're in the San Francisco area this weekend, be sure to check out these panels. You'll probably want to check out some of the other ones as well. If you see us, be sure to stop and say hello. Joey will be there lugging around the camera. This is your chance to tell him how much he kicks ass at editing the news and 3-Minute Expert videos. Norm will be there snapping pictures of all the best cosplayers. Tom Pinchuk will also be there getting into trouble. Riezner might be there if he decides to show up. Hope to see you there.

Woah seriously? Nice work G-Man promoting the general awareness of Comicvine. It's a shame I can't make it this year exams and all but good luck! I know you and Babs (or Sara) will do a great job!

So when are you guys gonna invade Batimore Comic Con?
Nevermind, I need to just go to one of the major west coast Cons and stop being lazy.
Any who, looking forward to the footage and interviews you guys put up.

You are a great man! I guess that's what the G stands for!  
I mean, what else could it stand for? Guerrero? That's just silly! 
I will be waiting impatiently for the news! What time is the meeting?

@matpaget: It's Friday morning. I'll be sure to tweet my impressions since we obviously won't be posting video right after since we'll be at the convention.

Hey guys, I just wanted to take a moment and state how much I appreciate the con coverage you bring to the site. I'm not what you'd call a "people person," and this way I get to see what's going on without without forcing myself to be sociable. :)

I'll be there as well. This work week can't go by fast enough! I am going to try to get out of work a little early to make the Adam Hughes panel, and will definitely be at the Francis Manapul Panel. Best of luck to you guys with the moderating duty! I'm sure it will be great.
