It was fun and I almost went to the Green Lantern panel (maybe it was better I missed it?) but went to the Dr. Who panel instead. That was pretty neat, got a limited edition T-Shirt for free. I was looking forward to going next year, with an eye on catching whatever comic stuff they would have had, but if it's going to be in Anaheim in April, I won't be able to get down there because of school.
I attended that Dr. Who panel as did Ryan, Toby, and Charlie. Were you sitting with us? I was shooting photos of cosplayers prior to the start of the panel, and didn't return to my seat until right before the start of the panel. So even if you were there, I likely missed any formal introductions.
As previously reported, WonderCon will be held in Anaheim this year, but Image Comics will be debuting a con in Oakland.
Coincidently, the first few WonderCon expos were held in Oakland. Eventually the venue became too large for its britches, so it relocated to San Francisco's Moscone Center.
Details about the Image Expo are slowly emerging. I've talked with a few creators who plan to have booths there. On the first day of the con, there's going to be an after the con party at one of the local shops (free booze - always a plus) and several folks whom I normally meet up with once a year at WonderCon are already talking about doing something similar for the Image Expo. In years past, our posse (about 20 people in all) would meet up for dim sum after the con. I'm sure we'll do something similar for Image-Expo '12.
