St. Louis Comic Con 2013 Guest List

St. Louis Comic Con

PAX East isn’t the only convention of note in the month of March. Wizard World’s St. Louis Comic Con will also be in full swing on March 22-24. This will be my first year attending St. Louis Comic Con and I have to say, I’m quite blown away by the amount of big name guests that will be appearing over the course of the event. When it comes to Missouri, I often hold the bar quite low. That might change now that Stan Lee, Billy Dee Williams, and Morena Baccarin are coming to my neck of the woods. Below is the full list of all attendees worth your time.
