Where to Party Like a Superhero During Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con, June 19 - 21

Though David Hasselhoff bailed due to scheduling conflicts, there’s still going to be plenty of fun on tap for this weekend’s Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con, which kicks off Thursday, June 19 and runs through Saturday, June 21. The comic book convention and celebration of all things pop culture and geek-fabulous brings a cavalcade of nerdy icons from Curtis Armstrong (Booger from Revenge of the Nerds) to Karen Gillan (Amy Pond from Doctor Who) and Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead) for meet and greets, as well as a gaggle of good times at bars and restaurants near the Convention Center. Below, check out what’s happening and where you can party down in your superhero getup.
