COLUMN: Aaron’s Backstage Pass: Wizard World Minneapolis Comic Con

Updated: 05/05/2014 4:53 PM By: Aaron Chalich

This past weekend I attended Wizard World Minneapolis Comic Con.  It is a three-day event that features comics, superheroes, horror, science fiction, and fantasy. 

There were many exhibitors and artists, plus a ton of celebrity guests that fans could get autographs and photos with such as William Shatner, Robert Englund, Dean Cain, Adam Baldwin, Sean Austin, plus many more. 

This was the first time that Wizard World held an event here in Minnesota, and I got the chance to talk to Jerry Milani who is the public relations manager for Wizard World.  I asked him how many years he has worked for Wizard World and if he could tell me a little bit about Wizard World.

I also got the chance to talk to Tom Cook who was the animator for many popular cartoons such as He-Man, Smurfs, and Scooby Doo.  I asked him about some of the shows he had worked on, which one he liked the best and also what he liked the most about conventions like Wizard World Minneapolis.

A majority of the people that came to Wizard World Minneapolis dressed up as their favorite superhero or character, and I got the chance to talk to a few of them and ask them about their costumes, if they go to a lot of conventions and what they are enjoying at Wizard World.

There were so many things to see and do at Wizard World Minneapolis.  Here are some highlights of what I experienced at the 2014 Wizard World Minneapolis Comic Con.

I had a great time at Wizard World Minneapolis Comic Con and I hope they come back again next year
