This weekend, it’s Women of Wonder Day

Women of Wonder Day

Returning this year “with a new name and an expanded mission,” the event formerly known as Wonder Woman Day is now Women of Wonder Day. This year the event will expand to a third location on Oct. 30 as a part of its mission to raise money for domestic violence programs.

The three events will occur at the following shops, where you can bid on art, meet creators and more:

  • Excalibur Books in Portland, Ore. with special guests Joelle Jones, Kelly Sue DeConnick and more.
  • Comic Fusion in Flemington, N.J. with Jamal Igle, J.K. Woodward and more.
  • Heroes and Fantasies in San Antonio, Texas with Benn Dunn and more.

In addition, there’s an online component, and you can bid on artwork and other items on eBay — including the chance to appear in a Brian Michael Bendis comic book.

You can find the complete press release after the jump.

This Sunday brings two events, one on each coast, that celebrate Wonder Woman and give back to a couple of good causes — the fifth annual Wonder Woman Day. Folks in Portland, Ore. can head to Excalibur Comics, while Comic Fusion hosts an event in Flemington, N.J. Both events will feature comic artists, costumed characters and silent auctions that, respectively, benefit the Bradley Angle, one of Portland’s leading domestic violence agencies, and Safe in Hunterdon, a domestic violence shelter in New Jersey.

The event, spearheaded by Andy Mangels, also has an online component — you can bid on Wonder Woman artwork on eBay, including the above piece by Chris Samnee and pieces by Ethan Van Sciver, Tom Yeates, Guy Davis, Steve Lieber and more.

You can find the complete press release after the jump.
