Joni Wagner is a prolific zine fanartist in several fandoms.

Wagner was introduced to fandom in 1973 at Starcon in Detroit. It was there she talked to [[Sharon Ferraro, who was selling zines. Wagner told Ferraro that she could draw, and the two exchanged addresses. [1]

She won a 1981 Fan Q Award for Favorite Single Artwork.

Wagner published in Facets #4.

In 1982, she was nominated for a FanQ award and submitted the following bio to The Annual Fan Q Awards Nominations Booklet:

"Joni Wagner will have been in fandom for 9 (eek!) years as of this coming fall. She was introduced to fandom by Sharon Ferraro and started out illoing almost exclusively Trek. As Trek interest began waning, lo and behold, Star Wars was viewed on the horizon. She's done a few pieces here and there for various other fandoms, but Star Wars is her big "thing" right now. Works have appeared in MENAGERIE, WARPED SPACE, SKYWALKER, FACETS, SYNDIZINE, PEGASUS, MOS EISLEY TRIBUNE, SHOWCASE, HALKAN COUNCIL, etc...This past year she's been working and putting a portfolio together in hopes of "striking out" and getting a job in the field at summer's end . She's illoed recently for fandoms in Trek, Star Wars, Raiders, Time After Time, etc. The illo representing her talent is entitled "Beat It, Junior" (erroneously titled "Get Away, Kid") and is from PEGASUS 5."
