MAGIC IS ALL AROUND, and we won't even add "if you know where to look," because we're just assuming you're a practicing wizard, which means you're fully up on where exactly to locate enchantment, and unearth sorcery-filled splendor, and pinpoint those amazing places that welcome whimsy of all sorts. And such an amazing place, over the final weekend of March 2019, will be the Anaheim Convention Center. For that's where WonderCon is set to again shimmer and shine, in the way that magical potions and people and pets sometimes shimmer and shine, for three days of panels, previews, artist hellos, merch-shopping opportunities, and chances to show off your rockin' cosplay look. (We're assuming if you're already a wizard IRL, you might cosplay as a different being, but you do you.) The dates are...

MARCH 29, 30, AND 31, meaning you can jump-start the pop culture fun on Friday, if you're so inclined. There's so much happening — WonderCon is in the Comic-Con International family, so no surprise there, regarding the packed roster — but you'll want to wave a wand and summon a few of the highlights, surely. Big names'll be in the convention center, like artist Sergio Aragonés, in-the-know pro Mark Evanier, and writer Shawn Benson, while a host of programs will cover a host of topics (The Golden Age of Dungeons & Dragons in Mass Media and Pop Culture, Breaking into Comics, lots and lots and lots more). And, you bet, the famous...

MASQUERADE... will spotlight some of the most amazing get-ups at the con. It's all across the street from Disneyland Resort, too, making for one hugely attended, magic-flush expo o' movies, comics, books, TV shows, games, and more. How to break open that "more," like you might break open an enchanted geode, the sort of talisman that's found in fantasy novel? Wave your wand and dig into the WonderCon site now for a thorough peek at everything soon to come.
