GAREB SHAMUS, WIZARD ENTERTAINMENT CEO,
ACQUIRES NASHVILLE’S COMIC & HORROR FESTIVAL

Nashville is newest tour stop of Wizard World Comic Con

New York, NY (February 22, 2010) – CEO of New York based Wizard Entertainment, Gareb Shamus, announces his latest convention acquisition. Nashville’s Comic & Horror Festival is now Nashville Comic Con Wizard World Convention.

“The fans in Tennessee have supported and have grown this show into what it is today,” said Shamus. “We will continue to bring our fans more of what they love about comics and pop-culture.”

The 10 year old Comic & Horror Festival was previously managed by Marc Ballard, owner of ComicCityTN. Ballard will act as an advisor and consultant to maintain the local feel of the show.

“It’s an honor that Wizard took note of this show. The new Nashville Comic Con will broaden the fan base and bring an exciting presence to comic conventions in Tennessee,” said Ballard.

New dates, venues and ticket on-sales will be announced soon.
