Non-Stop Fun at WonderCon Anaheim 2015

Would you rather shake hands with the Incredible Hulk or pose for a picture with Lois Lane? You may be able to do both. Lou Ferrigno and Margot Kidder will be among the many celebrities appearing at WonderCon Anaheim 2015. Getting autographs and interacting with your favorite comic and pop culture heroes is one of the best features of this very well attended annual event.
