Madison, Wisconsin – Wizard World Comic Con is set to arrive at Madison’s Alliance Energy Center for a three day “entertainment” convention beginning this Friday, February 6, 2015. Wizard Entertainment has launched a number of conventions over the years and this 2015; fans should expect a better and more fun-filled Wizard World Comic Con.
The convention will not only be celebrating comics and science fiction but TV shows and films as well. TMC’s The Walking Dead series is expected to make a big presence at the Wizard World Comic Con. In fact, Emily Kinney, who played the much-loved Beth Greene in the show, will be attending the convention.
There will also be a long list of celebrities who will be attending the convention. Fans would get to meet Capt. James T. Kirk himself as William Shatner pays a visit to the Wizard World Comic Con. Bruce Campbell who is known for his role in the Evil Dead and Army of Darkness films will also be attending the event. Other notable attendees are Ian Somerhalder of The Vampire Diaries, Eliza Dushku, Billy Dee and Adrian Paul as well as other celebrities.
John Macaluso, the CEO of Wizard World Inc., said that the Wizard World Comic Con is no longer a comic convention but more of an entertainment convention and a pop culture event.
The event has grown over the past years. In 2012, Wizard World was able to host six conventions. 2013 saw sixteen conventions while 2014 brought forth twenty four conventions including this one.
In the midst of diversity, the common denominator will always be the fans. The fans are the main reason why there is an event such as these. Wizard Entertainment aims to unite the fans of different comics, films and TV series with one pop culture event.
Even outside Wizard Entertainment, there have been a rise in the number of conventions being held around the world every year and during these times, the market for costumes are at an all time high. Various fans would be looking for TV and movie costumes at local costume stores as well as online retail stores like TV Store Online who are ready to provide them with what they need.
