Two big comic conventions are coming up in the next two months: Emerald City Comicon and WonderCon 2016. Both Ashley Eckstein and Her Universe will have a presence at both shows to promote Her Universe Press, the Her Universe Fashion Show, and Star Wars Rebels. While the complete WonderCon schedule will be released online approximately two weeks before the event, the Toucan Blog has published a few previews, as seen below.
In the previews, we discover that Her Universe has been working on an all-new Star Wars: The Force Awakens clothing line for Hot Topic. Fans will be getting a sneak peek of that line at WonderCon!
