Though its last stop in 2012 was in January, pop culture's moustrap Wizard World Comic Con returns in November for its annual three-day event at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
This year's recently announced celebrity headliners include Star Trek: The Next Generation's Patrick Stewart, Marvel Comics founder Stan Lee, and actors Eliza Dushku and Michael Madsen.
Other celebrity headliners include conservative Superman Dean Cain; The Walking Dead's Michael Rooker and Jon Bernthal; Hercules (hey remember that show? hey remember the 1990s?) star Kevin Sorbo; and the stars of morally questionable nerd-catnip The Boondock Saints (Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery and David Della Rocco).
The convention also features dozens of comic book artists and creators, including Eisner Award winner and Hall of Famer Neal Adams and nominees J.G. Jones, Ethan Van Sciver and Ron Garney, among others.
Events begin Friday, Nov. 30 through Sunday, Dec. 2. (Stewart and Lee appear Saturday, Dec. 1 and Sunday, Dec. 2; Dushku is scheduled Saturday; and Madsen will attend all three days.) Visit the website for details.
