Sorry for the somewhat late notice, but my first convention appearance of the year is coming up next weekend. Like the Chicago convention I went to last August, this is another Wizard World event, this time in my hometown of Portland. I’ll be there next Friday, Saturday and Sunday, signing books, selling original art and meeting fans (mostly other people’s, but I’m happy to say hello to anyone).
David Chelsea is listening to:
The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism
by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Wizard World, Inc. produces Comic Cons and pop culture conventions across North America that celebrate graphic novels, comic books, movies, TV shows, gaming, technology, toys and social networking. The events often feature celebrities from movies and TV, artists and writers, and events such as premiers, gaming tournaments, panels, and costume contests.
Wizard World isn’t just about comics professionals signing autographs- they have actors there as well. This convention’s celebrity attendees include Stan Lee, Summer Glau, Neal Adams, William Shatner, Bruce Campbell, Ron Perlman, Robert Englund- and that’s just the ones I’ve heard of!
