“Fans throughout the Southeast have made Wizard World New Orleans Comic Con a tremendous hit,” said John Macaluso, Wizard World CEO. “In January, thousands came to see stars like William Shatner, Adam Baldwin, Mary McDonnell and James Marsters, comics icon Stan Lee and dozens of others. We are working now on assembling another standout lineup of guests, VIP experiences and parties for what has become one of our most popular shows.”
On January 28-29, 2012, thousands of Wizard World New Orleans Comic Con fans met Shatner, Baldwin, McConnell, Marsters and Lee along with dozens of superstar artists such as Carlos Pacheco, George Pérez, Greg Horn, Jesus Merino, Tyler Kirkham and Arthur Suydam. That followed up a strong debut at the Morial Convention Center in January 2011.
