Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con is continuing today and tomorrow.  I attended the first two days which saw WWE's legion of loyal fans attend on Thursday and fans of shows like Walking Dead, Firefly/Serenity, and Charmed come out in droves.  For those of you that think Wizard World has become just a celebrities fest, there were plenty of big comic book names and deals to be found.

I spent most of my day at the Barry Kitson booth from whom I'll do a separate post later.  Aside from that I explored the Artist Alley getting sketches and looked for deals.  My impressions thus far are that the con while good still is not yet at the level it was when they first started Wizard World Philly.  It's not as crowded as a New York Comic Con which is good for the fans but I guess not so much for Wizard World.

They are continuing to grow and look to grow in the near future.  Including attracting more A list stars if the fans are willing to play.  The biggest draw for this con has to be John Cena.  At one of their prior cons they got Chris Helmsworth.  I recieved exclusive rumor that they are trying to get a certain long time Marvel movie actor with the hold up determining if fans are willing to shell out $250-500 for a guaranteed autograph.  Want a hint?  The actor/actress also have done broadway shows.

Tickets are not sold out with most of the big celebrities set to appear today and tomorrow.  So make your way out.
