 WonderCon is an annual comic book, science fiction and motion picture convention. It was created by John Barrett, a founder of the retail chain Comics and Comix.  The show's original name was the Wonderful World of Comics Convention.  The convention started life at the Oakland Convention Centre, in 1987.  In 2003, it moved to San Francisco's Moscone Centre. 

In 2001, Wondercon became part of Comic-Con International. The main attraction of WonderCon is the opportunity to buy back issues of comic books and action figures, and, more recently, specialty DVDs. There is also an "Artists Alley" featuring mainly comic book artists selling artwork, signing books, and doing sketches. As a result of the resurgence of superhero movies in recent years, the convention also boasts high-profile celebrity attendees.
