Press FAQ

Registration for the WonderCon@Home 2021 Press List is now open! All "WonderCon@Home Press List Registration" requests forms must be submitted by Wednesday, March 3, 2021. 
We encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Toucan - the official blog of Comic-Con and WonderCon Anaheim - for important updates and information.

As we continue to monitor the latest information from healthcare officials regarding COVID-19, we have determined the interest of public safety will prevent this spring’s WonderCon from moving forward as an in-person convention. 

Our commitment to the community of fans who enjoy WonderCon and the celebration of comics and related popular art remains an important part of who we are. It is because of that dedication that we are happy to announce that WonderCon will again be held as the virtual WonderCon@Home. 

We are currently in the process of lining up great programming, amazing exhibitors, terrific gaming, and many of the aspects that make WonderCon a fan-favorite event. 

If your press outlet has a verification status of “NOT DUE”, you are eligible to be added to the official WonderCon@Home 2021 Press List. Your Outlet Key Contact must submit a “WonderCon@Home 2021 Press List Registration” request form by March 3, 2021 to participate.  

Your outlet’s verification status and request form are located on the “Press” tab of your Outlet Key Contact’s Member ID account.

The official WonderCon@Home 2021 Press List will be made available to all of our participating studios, exhibitors, and program participants prior to the event.  It will contain the names, outlets, titles, email addresses, and countries of “attending” press members. 

The Outlet Key Contact is the primary person responsible for facilitating all communication between the press outlet and WonderCon, including submitting the “WonderCon@Home Press List Registration” request form. There can only be one Outlet Key Contact per press outlet. However, an Outlet Key Contact may be the Outlet Key Contact for multiple press outlets.

To update or change the Outlet Key Contact of a press outlet, email pressreg@comic-con.org for assistance. The new Outlet Key Contact must have their own valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID. 

If your outlet was approved to attend WonderCon 2020, you may now register for the official WonderCon@Home 2021 Press List! An email was sent to all eligible Outlet Key Contacts with instructions on how to submit a press list registration request. This email includes a link to the “WonderCon@Home Press List Registration” request form and a required access code. 

The link to the “WonderCon@Home Press List Registration” request form can also be found on the “Press” tab of the Outlet Key Contact’s Member ID account.  

Only the Outlet Key Contact may submit a “WonderCon@Home Press List Registration” request form on behalf of outlet members. All requests must be submitted by March 3, 2021 for consideration.
