Wizard Announces Wizard World St. Louis Comic Con

| Print |

Comics and pop culture event comes to America’s Center March 22-24, 2013.

 

 

Most Midwestern comics fans are well acquainted with Wizard World, the comics convention arm of the now defunct comics/geek culture magazine Wizard, thanks to their long-running Wizard World Chicago convention. Well, now a five-hour drive is no longer in order, as the WW gang has announced they’re adding two new stops on the Wizard World tour: Nashville and our very own St. Louis.
 
The first ever Wizard World St. Louis is scheduled for March 22-24, 2013, at the America’s Center in downtown St. Louis (701 Convention Plaza, attached to the Edward Jones Dome), and full weekend tickets will run you $60 (cheaper single-day passes are also available). Pop culture guests so far include legendary Colt 45 spokesman Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian of Star Wars fame), James Marsters (Spike, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Dean Cain (Superman, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman), and Ernie Hudson (Winston Zeddemore, Ghostbusters), while comics guests include Michael Golden, zombie artist extraordinaire Arthur Suydam, classic Green Arrow artist Mike Grell, former St. Louisan and current Daredevil artist Chris Samnee, and Marvel Comics living legend Stan “The Man” Lee.
