CNN PRODUCER NOTE About the annual Wondercon, veteran attendee CherryLA told me, 'It's getting bigger drawing larger names and projects so is almost a 'mini me for San Diego Comic Con but still a perfect event for those interested in attending a major con without the crazy lines and crowds. Also it's much more likely to be able to buy a ticket and make it an easy day trip for families. Going to SDCC is major with travel, parking, hotel and just navigating everything. Since this is still in one facility it's much simpler and still has an indie feel to it.'
