Comic book convention season is rolling on and on… and on… and iFanboy will be there to cover the third big convention of 2011. We're headed to WonderCon in San Francisco, CA from April 1-3!
This year promises to be memorable. We'll be hunting down interviews and having fun all weekend, so you can look for a video show before too long. If you're at the show, please do not hesitate to say hi to us!
But if you don't run into us on the floor, we expect to see as much of the iFanbase as possible at any or all of the following events, that you will not want to miss:
On Friday April 1 we've got one panel for you:
7:00-8:00 Digital Comics Smackdown - Digital comics are heating up. Competition is getting fierce. A panel of the best and brightest in the new wave of digital comics engage in a wide-ranging discussion of everything from comics on the iPad, iPhone, and PC to how digital comics fit into the brick and mortar marketplace.

Moderated by Chip Mosher (marketing director, BOOM! Studios). Room 220
And then the fun begins! On Friday April 1 at 7:00pm, it's The Walking Dead Zombie Bar Crawl with Robert Kirkman!
What: The Walking Dead Zombie Bar Crawl with Robert Kirkman
When: April 1, 2011 – 7 PM to 2 AM
Where: TBD – The crawl route and bar locations will be revealed here on 3/31.
As you may remember, for the past few years we've teamed up with our pals at Isotope Comics to give you the finest bar crawl comics has to offer. This year we're taking it up notch!
Not only are we going to be crawling with Robert Kirkman(!), but we're encouraging everyone to get fully ZOMBIFIED for this bar crawl. Show up in your best zombie gear and make up and freak San Francisco out!
But it doesn't stop there! There will be a LIMITED number of tickets sold for YOU (yes, you!) to get a seat on the Walking Dead Zombie Bar Crawl Bus! We've chartered the amazing MAGIC BUS (www.magicbussf.com) to take us from bar to bar along with Robert Kirkman and we thought it would be rad to bring some of you along!
How can you get a seat on the bus? Tickets go on sale on March 30th at 3 PM Eastern / Noon Pacific. Tickets cost $50.00 and there is a VERY SMALL number of tickets available.
We will be posting the link to buy tickets here on Wednesday, March 30th, so if you want to get your seat on the bus, be sure to come RIGHT HERE around 2:45 ET / 11:45 PT and start hitting refresh until the link is posted! We're expecting tickets to sell out very quickly, so be quick with your mouse finger!
What if you don't get a ticket for the bus? Not to worry! If you're attending Wonder Con, there will be another chance to win a ticket for you and a friend by visiting the Image Comics booth #401. All purchases made there on Friday April 1st will enter fans in a ticket raffle. Robert Kirkman will draw the winning raffle number there at the Image Comics booth #401 at 4:30 pm.
And lastly, we'll be posting the Bar Crawl route here on Thursday, March 31, so for those of you not on the bus, can plan ahead to join us at some of the best bars in San Francisco! Be sure to come back here to get your hands on the route and be ready for Zombie filled Friday night with Robert Kirkman! The route will also be available at Isotope Comics and the Image Comics booth at Wonder Con for those in San Francisco.
Those partaking in the bar crawl will be getting the ultra handy Walking Dead Zombie Bar Crawl Survival, Evasion and Escape guide, brought to you by Isotope Comics. This handy guide will show you where to go to avoid zombies and get adult beverages, as well as works as a great souvenir to get signed by Robert Kirkman!
This will be a night long remembered by comics fans and the city of San Francisco. Walking Dead fans will NOT want to miss out on this once in a lifetime event!
On Saturday April 2 we've got another panel for you:
6:00-7:00 iFanboy vs. Comics Alliance - Two of the leading comics media sites meet at WonderCon for the battle for ultimate comics supremacy. Watch as these comics pundits battle it out in a variety of challenges, ranging from their coverage of comics to opinions of comics and creators, and maybe even some trivia and chances for prizes for the attending audience members! Moderated by Ryan Penagos of Marvel Comics and featuring from iFanboy, Ron Richards, Conor Kilpatrick, and Mike Romo, and from Comics Alliance Laura Hudson, Andy Khouri, Caleb Goellner, and David Brothers. You don't want to miss this battle of the comics media titans! Room 236
