Preview: Wizard World Ohio Comic Con

Don’t know much about comics? No worries. You still might get geeked about the lineup at this year’s Comic Con.

Patrick Stewart (hey, he does Shakespeare) and the “Back to the Future” DeLorean ensure those of us sans costume will still find plenty of entertainment this weekend at the convention center. We were bummed when William Shatner was taken off the bill, but the addition of Val Kilmer has reignited a spark of fascination. Go for a glimpse of a celeb, but stay for the merchandise, costumes and copious eye candy that Comic Con offers.

Don’t miss the Saturday night masquerade party at 343 Front Street Tavern, Arena District. The first 150 people in the door get a drink coupon.
