There were rumors floating around last week that Wizard World’s Gareb Shamus was going to buy Mid-Ohio-Con, and now that rumor has been confirmed as Shamus makes it official.

“The acquisition of Mid-Ohio-Con gives us an even stronger presence in the key Midwest market,” said Shamus.  “We are excited to have the opportunity to build from the great foundation of Mid-Ohio-Con, which has consistently delivered the best in comics, celebrity and pop culture entertainment for 30 years running.”

Wizard World Mid-Ohio-Con has announced that Adam West, Burt Ward, and Rob Liefeld have already been announced as guests for the 2011 show, which will occur at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, October 22-23, 2011.

      Well, looks like you and I are gonna be getting Liefeld’s autograph next year then. Hey, maybe I’ll take a picture of the guy, I just want to prove that he himself has feet. This is great news though really, I was wanting us to dress up next year as Badrock and Shatterstar. You can be Shatterstar, your hair color is closer to his than mine, but the catch is, you need to start now if you’re going to grow out three sweet looking ponytails.
