About Wizard World

Wizard World

Wizard World Inc., formerly known as Wizard Press and Wizard Entertainment, is a producer of multi-genre fan conventions across North America. Starting out in 1991 as the publisher of one monthly magazine (Wizard), the company has evolved into a multi-title publishing company with diversified interests in branded products and related convention operations.

Just a few years after purchasing the Chicago Comicon in 1996, the now renamed "Wizard World Chicago" event boasted a weekend attendance of over 58,000 people.

In May 2002, Wizard branched out from Chicago and produced "Wizard World East" at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. And in 2003 the company produced "Wizard World Texas," adding "Wizard World Los Angeles" in 2004, and "Wizard World Boston" in 2005.

By 2011 the company had discontinued its print division, to focus exclusively on its convention business. Since then they have grown to producing more than 19 annual conventions around North America. Including Chicago, Nashville, Madison, Oklahoma City, Austin, New Orleans and this weekend Columbus OH. Which is the show I covered. During the Convention or the Con as their fans call it. There are comic book, movie previews, panels with stars in the movie, television and artist who created the books of sci-fi and fantasy. This is the highlights of the panels I covered on Saturday August 5, 2017.
