Philly Wizard World Impressions

Written by Darryll “YTC” Carter

Hey everyone.


With all that out of the way, Wizard World Philly was a blast. In the four days it was open it managed to bring something new and interesting each day. The amount of people in attendence was tremendous. There were tons of artists who set up tables; from Greg Capullo to George Perez. This convention had celebrities out the wazoo; Stan Lee, Patrick Stewart, William Shatner, the original Buffy, Kristy Swanson, Melissa Joan Hart, WWE’s Lita, CM Punk, Chris Hemsworth and the list goes on.

The cosplayers were in good taste this year, with an alarming amount of them dressed as Fin the Human from Adventure Time, including J1’s own, Hector Ramirez. There were various panels and programs; How to edit and write comics, How not to make a comic book, Jedi Weapons Training,  Q & A with the various celebs and Sci Fi Speed Dating. The latter of which didn’t pan out to well for most of the guys who attended. Sadly.. as expected.

     In the end Wizard World impressed and exceeded my expectations. I can’t wait to see what they throw at us next year.
