If you've never been to a Wizard World Comic Conβ€” and really, how many of us have?β€” next week you'll have several chances to attend as the first annual Cleveland edition debuts at the Cleveland Convention Center, Feb. 20 - 22.

The three-day celebration of comic books, science-fiction, and pop culture is a pretty big deal: The event has almost sold out and dozens of celebrities are expected to be on hand, including the Hulk's Lou Ferrigno, Star Trek's William Shattner, Dr. Who's Karen Gillan, the Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder, and quite a few others. (You can see the full celebrity lineup here.)

If the Indianapolis Comic Con is any indication, back-to-back events will be scheduled for all three days, promising costume contests, drink and draw comic sessions, panels with top comic artists and producers, and much, much more. The Cleveland itinierary hasn't been published yet, but keep an eye on this site for updates

There are still some single, as well as three-day passes available. You can check out pricing and additional info right here.
