WonderCon is coming to Anaheim March 16-18 — and Hero Complex is throwing a galactic pre-party to celebrate.

Admission is free but space is limited so RSVP now for our Mega Mixer at Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana on March 15 from 6 p.m.  to 9 p.m. Hosted by Geoff Boucher, the event includes free after-hours admission to the science center exhibits, plus complimentary food and beverages. Mingle with other heroes and check out the Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination exhibit. Fans of comic books, sci-fi film and genre TV will see some familiar faces in the crowd, too. This is an all-ages event; bartenders on site will card everyone.

The 26th edition of WonderCon, the younger sibling of Comic-Con International, will feature preview panels of upcoming films (among them “The Amazing Spider-Man,”  “Prometheus” and “Battleship”), an autograph area, a children’s film festival, gaming, a vast merchant floor and a masquerade event. WonderCon is a Bay Area import — it started in Oakland  and spent the past six years in San Francisco — is making this detour to Anaheim due to major renovations at the Moscone Center in the Golden Gate city.

    Thanks Geoff, this is awesome!
    We've wanted to check out the Star Wars exhibit since we saw the signs from the freeway.
    But at $18 a pop and more inside to actually experience it, the cost kept us away.
    And maybe we won't be so embaressed geeking out if more adults are there.
