We seem to be writing about Wizard World’s ever expanding line-up of comic con’s and specialty shows more and more here on the NSU blog. The latest news from the show giant has the company partnering with Chinese event and digital content provider China Branding Group Limited, through its FansTang subsidiary, to bring a pop culture convention to the People’s Republic of China. Much of the details have not yet been revealed but the show is planned for the weekend of May 30-June 1, 2015. This will be Wizard World’s first foray outside of North America.
