It would not be a convention without the programming, am I right? This year, Wondercon 2014 in Anaheim, California packs a punch as far as their programming goes! The topics all vary from television, films, books, and of course, comics themselves! So let’s take a look at just a few selections of the programming that we at the Futon Alliance have our eyes on over the course of the upcoming weekend!

WonderCon, while being the smaller convention in comparison to San Diego Comic-Con International, can still pack a pretty walloping punch, especially when its numbers grow year after year due to people unable to nab a badge for Comic-Con. That said, like any convention, it’s best to have some tips and knowledge handy to prepare you for before the convention, as well as what to do at the convention! We here at The Futon Alliance are here to help you! So here is  a handy list of tips for you to try and enjoy the con in every way possible (there are a lot, keep in mind!)

With convention season steadily beginning, we figure it was a good time to compile a short list of some of the cosplays we think you may be seeing as you wander the convention floors this year! You may even have the time to make one of your own to wear to that big con that you are attending after seeing this list. Have a pen and paper ready to make a checklist? Have your sewing needles and wigs handy? Let’s get to it!

Comic Review: Marvel’s “Magneto #1″

0

I have to admit, the idea of getting into comic books, for a short while, scared the bejeezus out of me, and quite frankly, still does. There is the mentality that you need to have followed characters through arc after arc, different writers from different years, to get the full experience of the character and their nitty-gritty details.

So why did I pick up the new “Magneto” series? Well, why not! It’s better to start somewhere with a character well-known and roll with the punches, right?

#IWantMyNerdHQ

Comic Con fans the world over have become familiar with Zachary Levi’s off-site hot spot, Nerd HQ, during the past several years. Attendees, professionals, actors, and anyone with a passion for all things nerdy gather to play games, swap stories, and bask in geekery. As an added bonus, Nerd HQ offers Comic Con attendees, as well as those who didn’t manage to score tickets to the overly popular event, a chance to sit down with special guest panelists in a more intimate setting via “Conversations With A Cause“. Of course, as Nerd HQ’s reputation spread over the past two years, getting tickets to the panels at head quarters has become almost as stressful as grabbing badges to SDCC itself. Last year’s Doctor Who panel, for example, sold out within seconds of going live. Nonetheless, Nerd HQ gives fans the chance to interact intimately with some of the biggest nerds of all–the actors and behind the scenes folk in the industry! And, by supporting Nerd HQ–attending the panels, photo-ops with Zachary Levi himself, and so forth–we also support a cause near and dear to Mr. Levi’s heart: Operation Smile. Operation Smile is a worldwide volunteer based program that provides surgeries for children and young adults whose lives are impacted by childhood facial deformities. Their work also serves to train doctors in developing countries so that they can provide better healthcare for all patients in their area. Last year’s “Conversations For A Cause” series alone raised $215,000 for Operation Smile.

We’ve watched Nerd HQ grow over the years, expanding and gathering fans together from all over while continuing to embody a spirit of intimacy not found anywhere else during San Diego’s Comic Con. Gamers can find solace in multiple set-ups featuring beloved classics as well as exciting new demos. TV fans can sit down

It’s not unheard of to look next to you at the bar and see Felicia Day eating her lunch, or Zachary Levi mingling with fans in the early evening. In fact, there’s not shortage to who you might see. And while it’s grown in popularity, size (2013′s Nerd HQ took over an expanse of Petco Park!), and demand, the event hasn’t lost its’ original goal and fans are clamoring to be supportive.
