Comic convention brings the stars

March 13, 2018 by  

The Wizard World convention is returning to Portland next month for three days.

The event attracts some of the top actors, writers, and artists involved in science fiction, fantasy, and comic books. There will be game tournaments (video and table-top), cosplay contests, and several panel discussions and question and answer sessions. There will also be workshops on topics such as molding and casting, social media, and Pokémon.

Among the actors who are set to appear at this year’s convention are Billy Boyd and Sean Astin from ‘Lord of the Rings’, Dave Bautista from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, James Marsters from ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’, and Star Trek’s Nichelle Nichols. Tickets will be available for special VIP visits with many of the stars. In addition, autographs can be purchased from $40 up to $80 and photograph opportunities cost from $40 up to $155.

A popular part of the convention is always the dealers’ room, where fans can purchase action figures, movies, posters, collectible comic books, and many other items.

Portland poster printing firms often help advertise events like Wizard World, which will be held at the Oregon Convention Center from April 13 to 15. Tickets are $79.95 for three days, $39.95 for Friday, $49.95 for Saturday, and $44.95 for Sunday, while VIP experiences have an average price of $299.
