Wizard World is doubling up on its convention offerings in 2014. Last year, Wizard World hosted seven cons. In 2014, they have added eight more conventions to their already impressive calendar. And in typical Wizard World fashion, they have a great selection of celebrities featured on their events. Some celebrities make the entire tour of conventions, while other celebrity guests are specific to a particular convention. If you've never attended a Wizard World Con, you are missing out on tremendous opportunities to get autographs from many of your favorite personalities from comics, movies and television.
