Boss Monster and Fluxx Demonstrations
Boss Monster - The retro-inspired dungeon-building card game from indie publisher Brotherwise Games is designed for 2 to 4 players. Boss Monster is packed with nostalgic references to 8-bit video games, dungeon-crawling RPGs, and geeky pop culture. Players compete to become the ultimate villain: the final boss at the end of a side-scrolling dungeon.

Fluxx - It all begins with one basic rule: draw one card, play one card. You start with a hand of three cards, add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change—from how many cards are drawn or played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn.

Peter Coogan (Washington University, St. Louis), Travis Langley (Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight), Molly Mahan (Dynamite Entertainment), and Chris Gavaler (Washington and Lee University) travel back before the big bang of Action Comics #1 in 1938 to examine the pulp vigilantes, mystery men, gentleman thieves, and sci-fi Ubermenschen who laid the groundwork for the superhero genre, as well as the role of eugenics in the emergence of the superhero and how these proto-superheroes are being revived today.

Especially with their female classmates at school, Chie, Nene, Koma, Ushio, Inori, Toma, and Minato have their own eccentric personalities as well.

Spinner Rack Revolution: The Secret History of Free Speech in Magazine Comics
In the 1960s and '70s, publishers fled from spinner racks to magazine stands to escape the bounds of the Comics Code Authority. While comic books continued to labor under the stigma of low-value, juvenile speech, the larger-format magazine comics broke out, giving artists a safe haven to openly deal with adult content, provide more horror and suspense, and be frank about sexuality. Magazines like Mad, Creepy, and Eerie paved the way for a generation of titles that included Heavy Metal, Vampirella, Epic Illustrated, 1984, and Savage Sword of Conan to break new ground for a general audience and loosen the reins on some of comics' top creators. CBLDF deputy director Alex Cox reveals the untold history of magazine comics, reviewing the impact of publications from Warren, Marvel, Heavy Metal, National Lampoon, and more!

Special Preview Screenings
WonderCon Anaheim and Warner Bros. Television proudly continue their annual Preview Screenings tradition, with episodes of The Flash and Gotham, plus advance sneak peek screenings of new episodes of iZOMBIE and Teen Titans Go!

The Flash- The Flash is a fast-paced superhero drama that follows the high-speed adventures of the Fastest Man Alive. After the unexpected and devastating explosion of the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator, Central City Police Department CSI Barry Allen finds himself suddenly charged with the incredible power to move at super speeds. While Barry has always been a hero in his soul, his newfound powers have finally given him the ability to act like one. However, Barry was not the only one affected that fateful night, and now a rash of super-powered villains are popping up all over Central City. With the help of his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs and his foster-father, Detective Joe West, Barry works to keep his city safe from these "metahumans," while working to uncover the secrets of and defeat his arch-nemesis, The Man in Yellow, who is responsible for the death of his mother and the wrongful imprisonment of his father. The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on The CW.

Gotham- Before there was Batman, there was Gotham. The origin story of the great DC supervillains and vigilantes has only just begun. Gotham follows Jim Gordon's rise through the Gotham City police department and the spawning ground of the world's most iconic villains. Gotham airs Mondays at 8/7c on FOX.

iZOMBIE - iZOMBIE makes its WonderCon Anaheim debut with an advance screening of a brand-new upcoming episode. Olivia "Liv" Moore was a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, overachieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out . . . until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. Now stuck somewhere between half-alive and undead, Liv transfers her residency to the coroner's office for access to the brains she must reluctantly eat, but with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse's memories. With her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she now solves homicides to quiet the voices in her head. Based on characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, published by DC Entertainment's Vertigo imprint, iZOMBIE airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on The CW.

Teen Titans Go!- The Teen Titans are back at it again, in Teen Titans Go!, with all-new comedic adventures both in and out of Titans Tower, and your Titans craving will be satiated by screening of a brand-new episode.

Dogs of War and Kaos Ball Demonstrations
Dogs of War - Dogs of War is an elegant game set in a steampunk-influenced renaissance universe. Noble houses engage each other in a series of fierce battles, and it is up to the players and the Dogs of War they control to deploy their private armies in support of whatever house they wish to favor. Clockwork knights and imposing war machines shift the tides of war as they enter the battlefields, but the interest of their Dog of War captains actually lies in the rewards offered by each noble house to its supporters.

Kaos Ball - Blood-soaked grass is the telltale sign that a game of Kaos Ball has been played. From the bone-crunching tackles, head-smashing blocks, and outright murder of the other team to the fast-paced passing and high scoring strategies, Kaos Ball is the ultimate sports fantasy game for 2 to 4 players. Each player chooses a team and then purchases team upgrades and drafts special ringer characters to help defeat their opponents. This pregame draft keeps every game of Kaos Ball exciting, unique, and strategic. Using an inventive cash system, players choose how to invest their money.

Comic Book Law School®: I Should Have Known Better
UPDATED: Fri, Mar 20, 04:48PM
With the seemingly weekly advancements in technology, it has never been easier as a creator to get your works in front of an audience, and hopefully in a profitable way. But the rise of crowdfunding, digital publishing, and print-on-demand services means there are more potential pitfalls than ever to navigate your way through. And while it's true that with great (technological) power comes greater reward, it also gives rise to even greater risk, with thieves gaining an ever-expanding bag of tools to use in fleecing the unwary. Bottom line: You need somebody's help (and not just a little help from your friends). Luckily, Ms. Walters and Mr. Murdock aren't the only lawyers available to the superhero set, as WonderCon Anaheim welcomes back noted IP attorney Michael Lovitz, author of The Trademark and Copyright Book comic book, to discuss the truths and myths of protecting your intellectual capital. Attendees are invited to come together and join Lovitz in an interactive discussion about basic rights provided under U.S. copyright and trademark laws. Starting with the basics on the ownership and protection of ideas, the panel will also provide a brief overview of copyright and trademark rights, including for works of authorship, characters, and names, as well as the registration process for each, a brief discussion on why written agreements are good, and not all lawyers are bad. Along the way, there will be plenty to learn about the protections, and pitfalls, of the U.S. intellectual property systems. Please note: The Comic Book Law School® seminars are designed to provide relevant information and practice tips to practicing attorneys, as well as practical tips to creators and other professionals who may wish to attend. However, the seminar is presented for information and entertainment purposes only, and the information presented and opinions expressed at the seminars do not constitute legal advice and should not be relied upon as such.

You start with a hand of three cards, add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change—from how many cards are drawn or played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn.

Once you've seen this mind-roasting presentation-which has played to standing-room-only crowds in San Diego for the better part of four decades-you'll never forget such covers as those of the "crotch-centric" issues of Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane, those with someone getting slapped with a "fish-in-the-face," and those Silver Age issues of Batman and Detective Comics with "Robin-in-the-corner!" Scott promises, "My hilarious presentation is for everyone who's enjoyed reading a comic book, whether as an avid collector or as a young patient in a dentist's office-in fact, even for people who have never read a single comic book in their life. Even if you've seen my acclaimed slideshow presentation many times before, when you see their covers blown up to the size of the side of a barn, you'll be amazed and delighted at the unbelievable imagery that is revealed!"

Publicizing Your Project
Got a new comic, a new web series, a new novel, a new TV show or a movie? That's great, but pretty meaningless if you and your friends are the only ones who know about it. How do you get the word out? Facebook and a webpage like everyone else? What can you do to cut through the clutter and get your stuff actually seen, actually talked about, actually out there so people can see it, read it, watch it, and buy it? Experts who have been getting projects seen dating back to Star Wars, including Molly Celaschi (Malena Public Relations), Joe LeFavi (Quixotic Transmedia), Craig Miller (Star Wars, The Dark Crystal), and Amy Ratcliffe (Nerdist, StarWars.com) will give you their thoughts and advice on how you can do it for your project.

Join Chris Gore (Film Threat, G4TV's Attack of the Show), Adrianne Curry (cosplay queen, America’s Next Top Model), Mary Forrest (The Biloon-Forrest Project podcast), Tommy Bechtold (ABC’s The Middle), Matt Keil (G4TV’s X-Play), Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse, The Death of Superman Lives) and more for a lively discussion.

Boss Monster - The retro-inspired dungeon-building card game from indie publisher Brotherwise Games is designed for 2 to 4 players. Boss Monster is packed with nostalgic references to 8-bit video games, dungeon-crawling RPGs, and geeky pop culture. Players compete to become the ultimate villain: the final boss at the end of a side-scrolling dungeon.

Fluxx - It all begins with one basic rule: draw one card, play one card. You start with a hand of three cards, add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change—from how many cards are drawn or played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn.

Pyramids - The pyramids are not so much a game, as a game system—like a deck of playing cards, a set of components that can be used to play all sorts of different games. Looney Labs has been making and playing pyramid games for almost 25 years.

Tournament of Nerds!
From The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles comes Tournament of Nerds!-the original pop culture comedy debate show. Who would win in a fight, Batman or Wolverine? Superman or Gandalf? Debates like these have raged on for decades. In dorm rooms, cubicles, and comic shops, fans have pondered these questions that seemed unanswerable-until now. Tournament of Nerds! pits comedians against each other to battle it out in heated debate. Their goal is to advance their character through a "March Madness" type bracket in hopes of being crowned the ultimate Nerd. Which pop culture character has the stuff to win? Helping decide who wins is a panel of celebrity judges.

Fluxx - It all begins with one basic rule: draw one card, play one card. You start with a hand of three cards, add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change—from how many cards are drawn or played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn.

Pyramids - The pyramids are not so much a game, as a game system—like a deck of playing cards, a set of components that can be used to play all sorts of different games. Looney Labs has been making and playing pyramid games for almost 25 years.

Comics Arts Conference Session #4: Comic Anxieties, Comic Traumas
Erika Rothberg (Loyola Marymount University) argues that "Prisoner on the Hell Planet: A Case History" in Maus helps bridge the gap between Artie and Vladek by exposing their shared trauma and survivor's guilt and requires the reader to witness and actively interpret trauma. Christine Zabala (Texas State University) analyzes the way genre and medium enable artists such as Oscar Wilde, Shaun Tan, and Neil Gaiman to use fairy tales and comic books to present controversial views on homosexuality, immigration, and AIDS without being rejected by the societies to which they react. Deanna Rodriguez (Texas State University) compares the attributes of Captain America in his first appearances and the conflicts he faces in Ed Brubaker's run to show how a WWII icon resonates with a post-911 culture and how the anxieties facing society today mirror those of post-war America.

Fluxx and Boss Monster Demonstrations
Fluxx - It all begins with one basic rule: draw one card, play one card. You start with a hand of three cards, add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change—from how many cards are drawn or played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn.

Boss Monster - The retro-inspired dungeon-building card game from indie publisher Brotherwise Games is designed for 2 to 4 players. Boss Monster is packed with nostalgic references to 8-bit video games, dungeon-crawling RPGs, and geeky pop culture. Players compete to become the ultimate villain: the final boss at the end of a side-scrolling dungeon.

iZOMBIE Special Video Presentation and Q&A
Olivia "Liv" Moore was a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, overachieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out-until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. Now stuck somewhere between half-alive and undead, Liv loses all traces of her former drive and ambition. She transfers her medical residency to the city morgue in order to reluctantly access the only real form of sustenance left available to her, and the only thing that allows her to maintain her humanity: human brains. But there are side effects to Liv's new diet: With each brain she consumes, Liv experiences "visions," flashes of the corpse's memories, including, in some cases, clues as to how they were killed. iZOMBIE makes its WonderCon Anaheim debut with a special video presentation, followed by a Q&A with series stars Rose McIver (Masters of Sex), Malcolm Goodwin (Breakout Kings), Rahul Kohli (newcomer from the UK), Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill), and David Anders (Once Upon a Time), as well as executive producers Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars) and Diane Ruggiero-Wright (Veronica Mars).

Boss Monster - The retro-inspired dungeon-building card game from indie publisher Brotherwise Games is designed for 2 to 4 players. Boss Monster is packed with nostalgic references to 8-bit video games, dungeon-crawling RPGs, and geeky pop culture. Players compete to become the ultimate villain: the final boss at the end of a side-scrolling dungeon.

Fluxx - It all begins with one basic rule: draw one card, play one card. You start with a hand of three cards, add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change—from how many cards are drawn or played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn.

Pyramids - The pyramids are not so much a game, as a game system—like a deck of playing cards, a set of components that can be used to play all sorts of different games. Looney Labs has been making and playing pyramid games for almost 25 years.

But for some unknown reason he quickly recovers it.

Open Play Demonstrations of Boss Monster, Fluxx, and Pyramids
Boss Monster - The retro-inspired dungeon-building card game from indie publisher Brotherwise Games is designed for 2 to 4 players. Boss Monster is packed with nostalgic references to 8-bit video games, dungeon-crawling RPGs, and geeky pop culture. Players compete to become the ultimate villain: the final boss at the end of a side-scrolling dungeon.

Fluxx - It all begins with one basic rule: draw one card, play one card. You start with a hand of three cards, add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change—from how many cards are drawn or played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn.

Pyramids - The pyramids are not so much a game, as a game system—like a deck of playing cards, a set of components that can be used to play all sorts of different games. Looney Labs has been making and playing pyramid games for almost 25 years.

Each player chooses a team and then purchases team upgrades and drafts special ringer characters to help defeat their opponents. This pregame draft keeps every game of Kaos Ball exciting, unique, and strategic. Using an inventive cash system, players choose how to invest their money.

Dogs of War - Dogs of War is an elegant game set in a steampunk-influenced renaissance universe. Noble houses engage each other in a series of fierce battles, and it is up to the players and the Dogs of War they control to deploy their private armies in support of whatever house they wish to favor. Clockwork knights and imposing war machines shift the tides of war as they enter the battlefields, but the interest of their Dog of War captains actually lies in the rewards offered by each noble house to its supporters.

Jubei-Chan - The Ninja Girl
Although firmly in battle with the Ryujoji clan's assassins, Jiyu still refuses to admit that she's the legendary Jubei Yagyu's reincarnation. But what she really wants to be doing seems to be becoming less and less important now, since Koinosuke continues to push her reluctantly toward accepting her current fate. But his training techniques are not really very helpful, and Shiro, her would-be protector, appears to be possibly turning against her, so Jiyu is confused and unsure of what she should do.

Comics Arts Conference Session #9: How Comics Work: The Span of Comics Studies
How is the study of sequential art explaining the mechanisms that make comics work? Do readers of American comics and Japanese manga use their brains differently? Do comic books naturally create a sense of community among readers in ways text-only books cannot? Do Jack Kirby's machines engage readers in ways they never knew? Neil Cohn (University of California, San Diego), Mathieu Li-Goyette (Université de Montréal), and T. Keith Edmunds (Brandon University) look into the brain, across the real world, and throughout many fictional worlds to examine how comics work for the creators they come from and the readers who consume them.

But he has another strange secret mission as well. Riki and Rin (currently the group's only girl) are both receiving odd messages, delivered by cats, concerning the existence of a secret world and being assigned tasks they both have to complete.

Full-Time Creative Work on a Part-Time Schedule
Knowing the basics of group dynamics, forming, and then working with a group without mortally wounding each other is the difference between success or failure of your projects, and possibly friendships too. No matter which industry (comics, illustration, TV/movies/webseries, webcomics, design, animation, costuming/cosplay, blogging), "breaking in" has never been a more apt term than in today's media. It's a full-time job and you only have part-time hours to accomplish it. This panel covers a wide array of organizational subjects, with a diverse panel who can speak to a variety of topics specific to your projects: Topher Davila (art director GeekdomWear.com), Sean Glumace (Adobe education leader), Heather Joseph-Witham, Ph.D. (Mythbusters and various TV), Ron Coleman, Ph.D. (molecular geneticist), Jonelle Davila (creative director, TheGeekGirlProject.com), Gene Turnbow (general manager, KryptonRadio.com), Mario Martinez (co-creator, TomatoTV), and Brendon Creecy (podcaster). They'll provide a mix of speaking, Q&A, and short interactive applications that directly apply the topics covered. Also, because it is tax season, Jun Watanabe (Enrolled Agent) will share some must-know tax tips relevant to personal projects and business. As an added bonus to help get your creative work life, the panel will give away a one-year subscription to Adobe's Creative Cloud.
