HFF had the pleasure of checking out Wizard World Comic Con in Austin this past weekend and were thrilled to be among some of the amazing vendors, artists, and celebrity guests that were in attendance. From the second the doors opened, this Con had massive crowds. Whether is was early morning or late afternoon visitors had the Austin Convention Center packed to capacity.
Some of the biggest draws this year were of course the celebrity guests like the Dixon Brothers from The Walking Dead (Norman Reedus & Michael Rooker), Captain Kirk Himself, William Shatner, and the King of Comics, Stan Lee. Lines for meeting ones of these amazing people snaked through a good portion of the convention and many of their autograph and photo opportunities sold out quickly on-line days and weeks ahead of time.
If you missed out on your chance to snag one of the autograph or photo packages, there was still a chance to get up close and personal with your favorite celebrity, by attending some of the fun and entertaining panels. One of our favorite panels we attending was called "Michael Rooker Vs The Audience." This unmonitored panel had Michael Rooker (Meryl Dixon from The Walking Dead, and soon to be on the big screen in Guardians of The Galaxy) simply taking questions from the crowd and sharing stories of his work on Film, TV, and video games. This guy was every bit as fun to watch here off the leash as we was on The Walking Dead.
If current affairs weren't really your thing, Wizard world offered up a fantastic list of celebrities that you pull at your nostalgic heart-strings like The Karate Kid, Ralph Macchio, and James Hong, from Big Trouble Little China, Bruce Campbell, Scott Bakula, Lou Ferrigno, and many more. This con had no shortage of great guests.
If you are bummed out that you missed Wizard World Austin, no worries Fanatics, WWCC will be back with a killer line-up in 2014, with our next closest opportunity to attend being the New Orleans Con in February! Be sure to check out WizardWorld.com for the full schedule and guest line-up and if you are going to try to snag a photo or autograph with your favorite guest, don't forget to purchase your tickets early!
