Wizard World returns to Sacramento THIS WEEKEND! No one can ever accuse WW of being subtle, they are bringing out the big guns with an impressive guest list, fully stocked Dealers Hall, and tons of event programing including their Costume Contest Saturday night. We had a blast last year covering the event and seeing all of our friends. We’re really looking forward to a great follow up con this year!
Premiere guests include; Nichelle Nichols, James Marsters, Charisma Carpenter, and Paul Wesley! Not to stop there, they are being joined by Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Eliza Taylor, Jon Heder, Edward James Olmos. They have also added Kate Beckinsale and Val Kilmer!!! Personally I’m super excited to see Barry Bostwick from Rocky Horror joining the line up this year!
