It is my pleasure to announce to my constant readers (yes I stole that from Stephen King, deal with it) that yours truly will be representing 1428elm and FanSided at Wizard World Con in Louisville Kentucky. I can hardly believe it, and it is a great honor to be invited to the inaugural Wizard World in my hometown of Louisville. We will soon be covering horror comics and novels so keep an eye out for that. Below is the press release for Wizard World Louisville, with mention of some guests that will be in attendance, as well as the official website and other places the Wizard World Tour will be visiting. If you are in the area come out to Wizard World Louisville March 28th through the 30th at the Kentucky International Convention Center, and feel free to say hi and shoot the breeze about horror movies, and all things horror in general. As I am a huge fan of comics as well as horror this is a huge opportunity for myself, and I can not wait to write about my experience.
