One week after the launch of their exciting new series “Lola XOXO,” the Southern California based publisher Aspen Comics will be headed to Anaheim for the second largest comic book and pop culture convention on the West Coast, WonderCon Anaheim 2014 April 18-20.
Aspen creators Frank Mastromauro (“Overtaken”), Peter Steigerwald (“The Zoo Hunters”), Vince Hernandez (“Fathom: Kiani”), Mark Roslan (“BubbleGun”), Siya Oum (“Lola XOXO”), J.T. Krul (“Soulfire”), Nei Ruffino (“Soulfire”), David Wohl (“All-New Fathom”), Ale Garza (“Fathom”), and Oliver Nome (“Fathom: Kiani”) will be appearing throughout the weekend at the Aspen Comics Booth #601.
Booth #601 will also be stocked with over 25,000 FREE comic books to allow you to sample the great books from Aspen.
On Saturday at 2:30 p.m. in room 208, the creators will be appearing at the Official Aspen Comics Panel 2014 to talk about the books that and get sneak peeks at what is coming in the next year, including behind the scenes art from “Lola XOXO”, “Jirni” Volume 2, “Damsels in Excess”, “The Zoo Hunters” and more. Everyone in attendance will receive a free gift. The panel will wrap up with one of the most fan friendly Q&As you’ll find at any con.
One of the best things about comic conventions is meeting artists and getting a personalized sketch. Aspen Comics is making it even easier with a “Free Sketch Hour” Saturday from 4-5 featuring popular Aspen cover artists Ale Garza and Oliver Nome. Get there early because this will be jam packed and it is first come first served.
Every day of WonderCon, aspiring artists won’t want to miss the opportunity to sit down with an editor. Aspen Comics Editor-In-Chief Vince Hernandez will be holding a “Portfolio Review” in Room 206B from 1:30-2:30 every day. Face time with a decision maker is so rare, so plan on getting there early.
