LOOK. Over there at the Austin Convention Center! It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s… Wizard World Austin Comic Con! Yes, you read right. It’s that time of year to let your inner nerd yell from the mountain tops for all to hear at North America’s largest pop-culture touring expo.
This year has a ton of awesome stuff to look forward to. First off, THE Patrick Stewart will be making an appearance along with other cast members of Star Trek: The Next Generation to celebrate the 25th anniversary. Why miss that reunion?! Other celebrities scheduled for this year include the smokin’ Eliza Dushku of Buffy fame, the tan guido party boy that is Mike the Situation, and hundreds more. Wizard World Austin Comic Con will also be holding a costume contest (among a number of others). So, dress for the stars because you never know who you might meet…or win!
And Austin Comic Con is far from an adult-only event. The kiddos are urged to come along too. In fact, Sunday has special programming just for the little ones along with face painting, exhibits, and more. Bonus? Children under 10 get in for free with a paid adult.
Whether you’re coming for a sighting of some of your favorite celebs, to brush shoulders with some of the most talented comic artists in the biz, or even to just meet some cool cats with a hankering for pop culture, everyone is sure to have a blast at Wizard World Austin Comic Con. From the latest movies, tv shows, games, and more, this is an event to mark on your calendar. So put on your best cape and fly on over to the Austin Convention Center Friday, October 26th.
