Exclusive Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con Video Compilation

Stormtroopers have blasted onto the Tantive IV at Wizard World Philly Comic Con

ToonBarn’s coverage of Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con is now complete, or your journey to the Dark Side, whichever you prefer. If you were one of the lucky ones to be able to attend “Philly Comic Con”, as most of us like to call it, then you weren’t disappointed. Albeit, there wasn’t a panel of the 5 Star Trek Captains, like there was at last year’s convention, but it still had plenty of star power and great panels from some of your favorite franchises. William Shatner and Stan Lee returned to greet their hordes of fans. WWE Wrestler John Cena had a huge following, as did Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker, from Walking Dead fame. Fans of The Fonz from Happy Days got to catch up with Henry Winkler to see what he’s up to now. The Charmed and Firefly reunions were equally impressive, as tons of people showed up for the panels to walk down memory lane for 2 great sci-fi and fantasy TV shows.
