Fans from around South Florida will unite to celebrate their love of all things geek and pop culture as Wizard World Comic Con invades Fort Lauderdale at the Broward Convention Center on October 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 2015.
Fans will be treated to interactions with their favorite movie and television stars, meeting some of the creators and artists behind a multitude of comics and animation and will be impressed by the spectacular cosplay.
Highlighting the amazing list of guests is the most well-known pop and geek culture icon, William Shatner. Shatner played Captain James T. Kirk in the original Star Trek television series and motion pictures. Next year marks the 50th anniversary of the historic and influential science-fiction show.
