If you’re planning on going to Wondercon later this month and unlike us, you don’t wait until the last minute and then frantically google things as you try to figure out your schedule, you might be interested to know what the comic book publisher known as BOOM! Studios has planned for the weekend. BOOM! will be holding court at the convention at booth #1301, where they promise both signings and convention exclusives, though they don’t let us know what any of those will be (that’s for another press release).
They did reveal their schedule of three panels for the weekend, however. In addition, BOOM! bragged that their booth is “one of the most prominent on the floor,” so you should have no trouble finding it. Check out the panel lineup below:
