WonderCon 2018 Program Book Celebrates Superman’s 80th Anniversary

This year’s WonderCon Anaheim Program Book cover celebrates the 1000th issue of “Action Comics” and the 80th anniversary of Superman.

Eighty years ago, two young men from Cleveland, Ohio – Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster – saw their dreams come true when their creation, Superman, was picked to be the cover feature on a new comic from National Allied Publications, known today as DC Comics. Action Comics #1 debuted in June of 1938 with a cover featuring a costumed man lifting a car and smashing it with his bare hands. The book was a massive hit and 999 issues later, Superman is one of the most recognizable fictional characters in the world, the star of comics, movies, television, animated films, and much more.

Drawn by Dan Jurgens, with inks by Norm Rapmund, and colors by Alex Sinclair, the WonderCon Anaheim Program Book is free to all attendees at the event. It’s the official guide to all things WonderCon, including the complete schedules for programs, anime, and games, bios and photos of our special guests, maps of the Anaheim Convention Center and the area around it, and much more. Make sure to pick up your copy when you arrive at WonderCon. Dan, Norm, and Alex will all be in Artists’ Alley, so get that cover signed by the artists!

WonderCon Anaheim 2018 will take place across March 23–25 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

I like it but that thing of having the trunks going above the top of the belt kinda ruins it for me. It’s not even something Dan does all the time but I really just don’t understand why he does it at all.
