The more experience they get, the more powerful they become, but the more zombies rise to face them!

Atlas Games Demos: Gloom and Murder of Crows
Atlas Games: Gloom and Murder of Crows Demonstrations all day

Gloom -- In the Gloom card game, you assume control of the fate of an eccentric family of misfits and misanthropes. The goal of the game is sad, but simple: You want your characters to suffer the greatest tragedies possible before passing on to the well-deserved respite of death. You'll play horrible mishaps like Pursued by Poodles or Mauled by a Manatee on your own characters to lower their Self-Worth scores, while trying to cheer your opponents' characters with marriages and other happy occasions that pile on positive points. The player with the lowest total Family Value wins.

Murder of Crows -- Uncover a murder most foul by revealing six story elements that together describe the deadly deed and spell the word MURDER. But take care that your opponents can't do the same -- take their letters, counter their actions, or call on a waiting Crow to influence the murder before they do! At any moment a well-played card can shift the balance and seal someone's fate.

Primoris is a card game for 1 to 6 players. Primoris is unique in that the players, although competing against one another, must work together in order to ensure the Empire's survival.

Player choice and interaction was stressed in the design of the game; every game is winnable, but conversely, every game can be squandered away with poor choices and lack of teamwork.

CAC #1: Hitler's Brain in an Ape's Body: Nazis in Comics
What is a superhero without a supervillain? And what is more supervillain than a Nazi? For decades, Nazis have filled the role of the symbolic counterpoint to comic books' greatest heroes. They're the gift that keeps on giving because they stand for evil in iconic and mythic ways. Because the world of comics allows for exaggeration, they can be used in all sorts of interesting ways, such as putting Hitler's brain in an ape's body. Peter Coogan (Washington University at St. Louis) leads a discussion on the relationship between Nazis and superheroes, and why Nazis were the perfect supervillains for Golden Age superheroes.

Using Your Background: Latinos in Comics
One of the great appeals of comics has always been the ability of readers to see themselves reflected in the stories they read. Even if a character has supernatural abilities, or lives an extraordinary life, the reader is drawn to a comic because of its ability to resonate with them. This can be especially important for those who are underrepresented in mainstream media. What does this mean for Latino comics creators? Moderator Vince Hernandez (Aspen) discusses how background can affect one's work with WonderCon special guests Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets), Jaime Hernandez (Love and Rockets), Joe Quinones (Howard the Duck), and Paolo Rivera (Daredevil).

Maggie, a skilled veteran of covert operations who closely guards the deeper purpose of the Stitchers program, heads the secret agency. Kirsten's roommate, Camille, a gifted computer science grad student, is also recruited to use her skills to assist Kirsten in her new role as a stitcher, as well as LAPD Detective Fisher, who provides backup and support for the team.

In this fast-paced yet highly strategic game, 2 to 4 players take control of Viking clans, invading, pillaging, and battling in a quest to gain as much glory as possible before Ragnarok finally consumes the land!

Comic Book Law School: Getting Started: Understanding Rights and Risks
With an ever-growing appetite for new content and rapid-fire advancements in technology, it has never been easier for a creator to get their work in front of an audience (and hopefully in a profitable way). But as traditional barriers to entry tumble, the exponential growth of alternatives (such as digital publishing, social media content distribution models, crowdfunding, and print-on-demand services) also result in an increasing assortment of traps, cons and hazards to navigate. And while it's true that with great (technological) power comes greater reward, it's the creators who must be responsible for protecting themselves and their creations from the unscrupulous and the deceitful who are gaining an ever-expanding bag of tools for fleecing the unwary. But luckily, creators have their own Defenders they can turn to-and not just Jessica Jones and Matt Murdock. WonderCon welcomes back noted IP attorney Michael Lovitz, author of The Trademark and Copyright Book comic book, to discuss the truths (and debunk some urban legends) of protecting your creative capital. Attendees are invited to participate in an interactive discussion led by Lovitz, concerning the basic rights provided under the U.S. Copyright and Trademark laws; including the basics on the ownership and protection of ideas, a brief overview of copyright & trademark rights and their application to works of authorship, characters, and names. 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.

Hollyweird Science
UPDATED: Fri, Mar 25, 08:52AM
For science fiction productions, there is an implied bargain between the screenwriter and the audience: "Suspend your disbelief on one or two fantastic notions, and other parts of the story will be grounded in the believable." The genre is predicated on the expectation of one or two key inaccuracies per story. In recent years, however, both experts and fans have been nitpicking even the fundamental story conceits of films such as Gravity, Interstellar, and The Martian. From the "anything goes" storytelling approach of 1950s and 1960s sci-fi, these panelists will explore whether or not the science accuracy pendulum of audience expectation has swung too far in the other direction. Panelists are Jaime Paglia (showrunner Eureka, Scream), Kevin R. Grazier, Ph.D. (science advisor, Gravity, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales), Jessica Cail, Ph.D. (science advisor, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Zootopia), Deric Hughes (Warehouse 13, Beauty and the Beast), Andrea Letamendi, Ph.D. (clinical psychologist The Arkham Sessions, Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics) and Ashley Edward (Thor, X-Men: First Class).

Comic Pitch Review
If you're a writer or artist attending the Comic Creator Connection, this is your chance to practice giving your pitch before the big event and get some free coaching from a pro. Not sure what that means? A pitch is simply the way you present yourself or your project to others. It is usually a brief speech designed to persuade and interest your listener in what you're doing or what you've made. Most creators have no trouble coming up with fantastic ideas for new comics, but they often struggle to talk clearly and concisely about those ideas to other people. Giving a good pitch is a vital skill you must have to bring your project to life. Fortunately it's also a skill you can learn and improve with practice, and Pitch Review is a great place to do that. Pitch Reviews will be conducted by Douglas Neff, an experienced presentation coach and professional public speaker who hosts the Comic Creator Connection and From Fan to Creator: Goal-Setting for Creative Types. This is not a panel. Instead, these are 3- to5-minute individual coaching sessions for as many people as can be accommodated in the scheduled time. Everyone is welcome. Please note that showing up is not a guarantee that you'll get a review session. Spaces are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Primoris is a card game for 1 to 6 players. Primoris is unique in that the players, although competing against one another, must work together in order to ensure the Empire's survival. The Emperor of Ornax is dead. Absolute authority now lies within the Conclave of Councilors. You are one such person. It is a game of intrigue, betrayal and brutal balance. Player choice and interaction was stressed in the design of the game; every game is winnable, but conversely, every game can be squandered away with poor choices and lack of teamwork.

Atlas Games Demos: Gloom and Murder of Crows
Atlas Games: Gloom and Murder of Crows Demonstrations all day

Gloom -- In the Gloom card game, you assume control of the fate of an eccentric family of misfits and misanthropes. The goal of the game is sad, but simple: You want your characters to suffer the greatest tragedies possible before passing on to the well-deserved respite of death. You'll play horrible mishaps like Pursued by Poodles or Mauled by a Manatee on your own characters to lower their Self-Worth scores, while trying to cheer your opponents' characters with marriages and other happy occasions that pile on positive points. The player with the lowest total Family Value wins.

Murder of Crows -- Uncover a murder most foul by revealing six story elements that together describe the deadly deed and spell the word MURDER. But take care that your opponents can't do the same -- take their letters, counter their actions, or call on a waiting Crow to influence the murder before they do! At any moment a well-played card can shift the balance and seal someone's fate.

Deanna Rodriguez (Texas State University) investigates how comics provide a platform for Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie to explore fandom, celebrity culture, and the myth of the devil with the character of Lucifer in The Wicked + The Divine.

Following the epic season two cliffhanger, the highly anticipated third season finds the crew of the Nathan James shifting their attention to Asia after President Michener hears rumblings that the Chinese leader, President Peng, has been hoarding the "Scott cure" instead of distributing it to the people in the region. Michener sends Chandler to a global summit to investigate this allegation, as well as rumors of a possible mutation of the original virus that has caused a fresh outbreak in Japan. If the mutation has occurred, and Asia has not been protected, the consequences for the world are dire. And with Rachel Scott shot in the season 2 finale and her fate as yet unknown, hope is in low supply. Panel attendees will be treated to never-before-seen footage and a revealing discussion led by TV Guide's Rob Moynihan. All new episodes of The Last Ship air on TNT this summer.

CAC #6: Comics and Gender
Emily Rauber Rodriguez (University of Southern California) examines the methods Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro have used in Bitch Planet to critique and revise the message of exploitation films for a more diverse audience and the essentiality of the comics medium to that critique. Ayanni C. Hanna uses feminist science fiction critique, coupled with close readings and a creator interview, to examine the ways Alessandro Barbucci and Barbara Canepa in Sky Doll question and deconstruct the common perceptions of both "woman" and "human" while also forcing readers to examine not only their understanding of normalcy, but the binaries they've come to rely upon. Using David Coon's critique of suburbia, Michele Brittany (Fanboy Comics) examines the suburban American Dream in Dark Horse's Lady Killer through the familial unit, representations of gender, and the concept of tradition.

UPDATED: Fri, Mar 25, 08:45AM
A long-overdue movement is afoot to diversify the reading materials kids encounter in the classroom and in libraries, and comics are an invaluable tool in that mission. Unfortunately, diverse reading encounters an all-too-common opponent: censorship. Books that increase the diversity of classroom and library materials are more likely to be challenged. In this workshop, CBLDF Editorial Director Betsy Gomez, the San Diego Public Library’s Erwin Magbanua, YALSA President Candice Mack, and educator Vanee Smith-Matsalia will provide tips for using comics to diversify classrooms and practical tools for overcoming the challenges they might face.

Animation invite WonderCon attendees to witness the world premiere of Justice League vs. Teen Titans, the latest entry in the ongoing series of DC Universe original movies. When Damian's overaggressive tendencies almost destroy a Justice League mission, he is sent to learn teamwork by training alongside the Teen Titans. However, adjusting Damian's attitude turns out to be the least of the Teen Titans' troubles, as Raven's satanic, world-conquering father Trigon begins an escape from his interdimensional prison. To complete his return, Trigon must have Raven's assistance; and to accomplish his goal, he spreads his demonic forces across the globe, infiltrating the minds and bodies of the Justice League to do his bidding. To save the universe and prevent a literal hell on Earth, the Teen Titans must rescue, or defeat, the Justice League and inter Trigon for all eternity. The film's all-star cast includes Jason O'Mara (Complications, Terra Nova) as Batman, Jerry O'Connell (Crossing Jordan, Stand By Me) as Superman, Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Rent) as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) as Cyborg, and Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs, Ugly Betty) as Flash.

Ryan Satin (Pro Wrestling Sheet) leads a discussion with series creators Michael Kingston and Michel Mulipola, artist Ramon Villalobos (E Is for Extinction), and wrestlers/series contributors Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian (Ring of Honor) as they discuss their contributions to wrestling, and comics and how they've been influenced by them.

Gloom -- In the Gloom card game, you assume control of the fate of an eccentric family of misfits and misanthropes. The goal of the game is sad, but simple: You want your characters to suffer the greatest tragedies possible before passing on to the well-deserved respite of death. You'll play horrible mishaps like Pursued by Poodles or Mauled by a Manatee on your own characters to lower their Self-Worth scores, while trying to cheer your opponents' characters with marriages and other happy occasions that pile on positive points. The player with the lowest total Family Value wins.

Murder of Crows -- Uncover a murder most foul by revealing six story elements that together describe the deadly deed and spell the word MURDER. But take care that your opponents can't do the same -- take their letters, counter their actions, or call on a waiting Crow to influence the murder before they do! At any moment a well-played card can shift the balance and seal someone's fate.

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 (Looney Labs) -- 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.

Comic Pitch Review
If you're a writer or artist attending the Comic Creator Connection, this is your chance to practice giving your pitch before the big event and get some free coaching from a pro. Not sure what that means? A pitch is simply the way you present yourself or your project to others. It is usually a brief speech designed to persuade and interest your listener in what you're doing or what you've made. Most creators have no trouble coming up with fantastic ideas for new comics, but they often struggle to talk clearly and concisely about those ideas to other people. Giving a good pitch is a vital skill you must have to bring your project to life. Fortunately it's also a skill you can learn and improve with practice, and Pitch Review is a great place to do that. Pitch Reviews will be conducted by Douglas Neff, an experienced presentation coach and professional public speaker who hosts the Comic Creator Connection and From Fan to Creator: Goal-Setting for Creative Types. This is not a panel. Instead, these are 3- to5-minute individual coaching sessions for as many people as can be accommodated in the scheduled time. Everyone is welcome. Please note that showing up is not a guarantee that you'll get a review session. Spaces are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.

A psychologist created the world's most famous superheroine. A psychiatrist attacked that psychologist and the character as part of his war on the comic book industry.

Join psychologists Travis Langley (Batman and Psychology; Captain America vs. Iron Man), Elizabeth Ann (Star Wars Psychology), Patrick O'Connor (Comicspedia), and Janina Scarlet (Superhero Therapy), along with Alan Kistler (Agents of Style) and Matt Munson (The Project Workbench) for a look at the comic book psychos.

CBLDF: She Changed Comics: The Women Who Changed Free Expression
Meet the women whose work changed what's possible for free expression in comics! In the Golden and Silver Ages, pioneering cartoonists challenged gender and color barriers to establish a place for women in comics. In the turbulent 1960s and 1970s, underground cartoonists used the comics page to advance feminism and teach public health, while the alternative cartoonists of the 1980s and 1990s produced groundbreaking personal and political narratives. This panel will also explore the editors and publishers who blazed new trails for mainstream and alternative comics and examine the creators who made the graphic novels that inspired today's landscape of increasingly diverse and empowering comics storytelling. Moderated by CBLDF editorial director Betsy Gomez.
