Sundays are usually the most relaxed day at comic conventions. Head on out to Anaheim for alien Easter eggs at WonderCon.
Today you can learn about fashion with Babs Tarr (Batgirl), Kevin Wada (She-Hulk),Jake Wyatt (Ms. Marvel), and Kris Anka (Uncanny X-Men) as they break down street fashion, superhero costumes, style versus form, and sexualization of fashion in mainstream comics. It might be informative, but it will definitely be a good time in room 213 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
There will also be a special DreamWorks Animation panel about a new original series: Dragons: Race to the Edge, along with the new adventure series Dinotrux. Plus, there will be glimpses into what’s in store for fan-favorite characters like King Julien and Puss In Boots. Even more surprises await as host Eric Bauza and Dragon executive producersArt Brown and Doug Sloan take you behind the scenes of these Netflix original series! Attendees will receive a WonderCon Anaheim exclusive Dragons print from DreamWorks Animation and a special gift from Netflix (supply limited to room capacity). Sunday, 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Room 300AB.
You can also learn about the psychology of “The Walking Dead.” The Walking Dead explores ways people struggle to survive and hang onto their humanity in the worst situations. Psychology professionals Travis Langley (Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight), Elizabeth Ann (NerdLush), Josué Cardona (Geek Therapy), Patrick O’Connor (The Chicago School of Professional Psychology), Billy San Juan (Community Research Foundation), and Janina Scarlet (Superhero Therapy) use examples from the comics to discuss the psychology of trauma and triumph. They will be joined by novelist S. G. Browne (Breathers) and journalist Janey Tracey (Outer Places). Why do horrific circumstances bring out the worst in some people and the best in others? Is there hope? That’s from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
How about a world premiere? “Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts.” Another storm is brewing in Gotham, and it’s not only raining cats and dogs but evil Cyber Animals! Be among the first to see how Batman and his team of superheroes meet the challenge in the World Premiere of Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts. When the city is plagued by a slew of bizarre crimes committed by an animal-inspired villain squad known as the Animilitia-made up of Silverback, Cheetah, Killer Croc, and Man-Bat-Batman must swing into action to investigate. These animalistic villains bring new and exciting challenges for the hero of Gotham, and Batman must find a way to bring these criminal creatures to a halt! But could the Animilitia be working for powerful businessman Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin? How does The Penguin’s new invention of robotic Cyber Animals fit into the mix? In the end, it’ll be up to the combined forces of Batman, Flash, Green Arrow, Nightwing, and Red Robin to combat these Animal Instincts. Catch this new flick, then stay for an entertaining panel featuring the voice of Batman himself, Roger Craig Smith (Batman: Arkham Origins),Yuri Lowenthal (Ben 10 franchise, Naruto), screenwriter Heath Corson, and other guests.
