Wizard continues tour expansion close to home

New York, NY (January 25, 2010)Gareb Shamus announces today that he will produce New Jersey Comic Con Wizard World Convention this fall.

“Much of my family lives or has lived in the Garden State. All my hometown friends there were bugging me to do this for them and their kids.” said Shamus, CEO of New York-based Wizard Entertainment. “Launching this event is exciting because it gives our fans in New Jersey a show to call their own.”

The NJCEC is the largest and most accessible convention center in the region. This venue will ensure fans have a comfortable and modern venue experience.  New Jersey Comic Con fans can expect a family entertainment-focused event with a concentration on comics, games and toys, while all aspects of pop-culture will be represented.
