Celebrities and Schedule for Inaugural Wizard World Comic Con Indianapolis, February 13-15, 2015

Look out Indy, looks like GenCon has competition for our affection in the form of Wizard World Comic Con this weekend, beginning Friday and running through Sunday afternoon.

Downtown Indianapolis will, once again, pay host to convention attendees dressed in cool costumes, celebrities of television and films, and those who share a passion for all things comic book, super hero and out of this world. Yes, that includes (be still my heart) William Shatner from Star Trek, Harry Potter series actors, The Hulk, and others from the world of mystic and marvel.

 It is the first trip to Indianapolis for Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB: WIZD) and the fourth event on the 2015 Wizard World Comic Con calendar.

Although I do not see local comic book artist Gavin Smith on the list, other major comic artists to attend, include: John Tyler Christopher ("Amazing Spider-Man," "Avenger"), Neal Adams("Batman," "X-Men"), James O'Barr ("The Crow") and Michael Golden ("Daredevil," "Hulk"). Wizard World Comic Con Indianapolis, February 13-15, 2015 will be held at the Indianapolis Convention Center.

Others in Artist Alley include: Dr. Travis Langley (“Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight”), Renee Witterstaetter (“She Hulk,” “Avengers”), Troy Brownfield ("Grimm Fairy Tales"), Jeremiah Lambert ("Transformers," "Tonka Truck") and C.S. Marks ("Elfhunter," "Ravenshade").

Full-price Wizard World Comic Con Indianapolis attendees will receive a limited edition exclusive variant cover “The Walking Dead” comic, drawn by a top Wizard World artist. Comics will be issued at registration while supplies last and VIP attendees will receive an additional black & white sketch version.

Celebrities attending include William Shatner (“Star Trek,” “Boston Legal”), Liam McIntyre (“Spartacus”), Katie Cassidy ("Arrow," “Gossip Girl”), James and Oliver Phelps (“Harry Potter”), Michael Cudlitz (“The Walking Dead," "Southland"), WWE® Divas The Bella Twins™, Sonequa Martin-Green (“The Walking Dead,” “Once Upon a Time”), Emily Kinney (“The Walking Dead") and many others.
