I’m sure some will be elated the comic convention is returning, but I have a feeling more than one person could care less what Wizard is doing with their conventions these days.
Gareb Shamus, CEO of New York based Wizard Entertainment, today announced the launch of Austin Comic Con 2010 Wizard World Convention, to be held at the Austin Convention Center from November 12-14, 2010.
Fans have been asking for this event for some time. In an e-mail to Shamus, Larry Nickels Jr. wrote, â€œThere are many people that I know of personally who would love to attend the convention if it is returned to our great state.â€
Another fan, Matthew Adamic put it more succinctly with, â€œBring back Wizard World Texas.â€
â€œThe fans have spoken and they want us back in Texas. We previously had a great experience here and are thrilled to be back,â€ said Shamus. â€œItâ€™s a great city with a top-notch convention center and weâ€™re really looking forward to seeing our fans at the type of pop-culture festival only we can bring.â€
Austin is now the seventh city in the Wizard World Comic Con tour. Attendees can anticipate the strong caliber lineup of stars and exhibitors that fans across the nation have come to expect.
