Breaking news from the busy world of comic book conventions: after much speculation, Comic-Con International has confirmed that due to construction at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, they will be moving WonderCon to Anaheim, CA for 2012.
WonderCon will be held in Anaheim on March 16-18, 2012.
As a result of this announcement, C2E2 will be changing the planned dates of their show which was also to be held in March. In addition, WizardWorld announced that it was pushing its Anaheim show from March to April. New dates for C2E2 have yet to be announced.
The announcement from C2E2 (a Reed show) and WizardWorld marks a startling amount of cooperation from am industry that has become quite competitive and cutthroat in recent years.
This is a blow to us here at iFanboy as WonderCon in San Francisco is always one of our favorite shows of the year. Not only is it Ron’s current hometown, but we have enjoyed many years partnering with Isotope to bring people fun and unique comic convention social experiences. Also, there are great tacos.
More on this story as it develops.
