Wondercon 2009

Yes, this is short notice. Yes, its tough to get to San Francisco for cheap these days (unless you live there). But that doesn't mean you should be deprived of WonderCon. The 2009 incarnation starts today and will run until March 1 (which is Sunday) at the Moscone Center South in San Fran. Tickets (on-site) are $40 for the weekend, $15 for Friday or Saturday and $10 for Sunday (which admittedly means there is no savings in the weekend pass). Why should you care? Here's a list of some of the top talent that will be at the show. Sergio Aragones, Brian Azzarello, Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction. Just to name a few. Some of the publishers that will be there include DC Comics, Image Comics, IDW Publishing and Dark Horse Comics. And probably the biggest draw is the chance to see the Watchmen movie tonight before everyone else. Three-day and Friday only members will be able to enter in a drawing to win a free pass to a special Friday, February 27, 11:55 PM IMAX screening of Watchmen. The drawing will be held today, and only those that purchase Friday or 3-day passes will be eligible (guess there are some savings with the three day pass afterall). WonderCon 2009
