Dark Horse Releases Its WonderCon 2014 Schedule


Avatar - Gene Yang

With WonderCon 2014 just around the corner – literally next week! – Dark Horse has unveiled all of the awesome events it has planned for the comic book convention.

Highlights include some excellent free signings by Gene Yang, Mike Mayhew, Dan Parsons, Sara Ryan, Gail Simone, Zack Whedon, Georges Jeanty, and so many more.

As a huge fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender, I am most excited to meet Yang. His work adapting one of the finest animated series in the past decade into a compelling collection of graphic novels is undoubtedly praiseworthy.

Other than signings, a trio of interesting panels will be available to partake in. They will cover Star Wars, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and a Joss Whedon-based presentation covering Serenity, Buffy, Angel & Faith.

You can scope out Dark Horse’s official schedule plus complete panel descriptions below. WonderCon 2014 takes place in Anaheim, California, from April 18-20.
