I could just be reading a little too much in to this, but the email says, "..our new location in Anaheim." New Location??? I thought it was a temporary location. Does this mean that Comic-Con International is looking to make WonderCon a permanent resident of Anaheim and say farewell to the Bay Area, or was it just simple wording that I'm blowing out of proportion?
It's no secret that Anaheim has hoped to get Comic-Con to move from San Diego to Anaheim. (Read about it here.) But with the capacity problems Comic-Con already has, Anaheim would not work. However, WonderCon is the perfect size for the Anaheim Convention Center, much like San Francisco's Moscone Center is. To entice WonderCon guests to fall in love with it being in Anaheim, there are some local deals for attendees. This includes special prices for Disneyland tickets.
If WonderCon were to move to Anaheim, Southern California would be ground zero in the Con world. You would have San Diego Comic-Con, WonderCon, Monsterpalooza, Long Beach Comic Con, and Comikaze Expo just to name a few of the heavy hitters. For that reason, I'm really hoping that WonderCon will return to its home in San Francisco.
What say you?
