[UPDATED With Comment From Anaheim Convention Center; Move Not Confirmed] WonderCon Moving To Anaheim
Original post: July 29, 2011, 10:40 a.m.: Get ready for an invasion of comic junkies dressed in Star Trek paraphernalia because WonderCon, an annual comic book, science fiction and motion picture convention under the umbrella of Comic Con International, is moving to the Anaheim Convention Center this April. Bleeding Cool reported a change in venue for the annual event. Senior officials have confirmed that the move from the Moscone Center in San Francisco to Anaheim because of renovations. The San Francisco area has been home to the comic convention since 1987.
Over 50,000 people visited WonderCon this past year, but with the San Diego Comic Con just down the street (well, freeway, anyway), the question remains: Will these same fans be willing to make a longer trek to attend in 2012? Officials might want to think of moving the conventions a little farther apart, maybe even to different states.
