Hot on the heals of Wizard World Philly 2010, Gareb Shamus has announced the dates for next year’s convention.

Press release follows:

In the midst of an overwhelmingly successful 2010 Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con, Wizard Entertainment CEO Gareb Shamus today announced that the event will return to the Pennsylvania Convention Center, June 10-12, 2011.

This year’s event, which concluded on Sunday, featured stars Patrick Stewart, Adam West, Bruce Campbell, James Marsters, Linda Hamilton and more than 150 celebrities, comic artists and writers.  The 10th Philadelphia Comic Con brought together fans of pop culture, comics, toys and collectibles and offered a chance to see the best each industry has to offer.

  1. I’ll be going again next year just as I have for the last 8. I only hope they can get Top Cow, Dark Horse, DC, and Aspen to come back. I don’t understand why they weren’t there for this but seem to be attending all the other cons in the area.

    • It was really disheartening to walk into the show room floor and be greeted by a booth promoting a cell phone in place of where the DC & Marvel booths had once been. I highly doubt I’ll be returning for what would be my fifth show. I think Baltmore or NYCC will be my new show of choice.

  2. I’ll definately be returning but I totally agree with you. The Wizard Booth even seemed to be missable if you aren’t paying attention. They can’t seem to get people to come out any more and I don’t know why. The talent is great though. Artist Alley got even bigger this year (which is my main reason for attending).
