Wizard World Atlanta Take Two

2009-01-26-wizardworld_atlWizard Entertainment announced Atlanta as the ninth location for their Wizard World Comic Conventions with no date attached as of this report.

The “TBD” status is enough to send a chill up the spine of smaller comic and entertainment convention promoters who remember the fervor that swept over the industry during Wizard’s first attempt at an Atlanta show in 2006. The company scheduled their event for the same date as the Charlotte, NC Hero Con — a move that caused guests to take sides and eventually derail the show completely.

That was over four years ago and Wizard hasn’t been back, until now. This time, however, their actions suggest trying to avoid conflict by purchasing one (of four) of the 16-year-old Atlanta Comic Convention events from veteran show promoter Wes Tillander.

As for any overlap, there would be concerns when it comes to the smaller niche Cons held in the city but the long-standing Dragon*Con is likely to be a safe haven if not only for the major hotels all being booked well in advance for the 2010 Labor Day weekend show.

No venue has been chosen for the Atlanta show at this time. We’ll be sure to update you with guest lists, dates, and more whenever it becomes available.
