Wizard World have yet again postponed (aka cancelled) their Los Angeles comic con show. This isn’t the first time it has happened and it took Wizard a few years before they even returned the show to California in Anaheim instead of L.A. Alas, many have already bought their tickets and even worse, some have said they’ve paid for non-refundable hotel rooms. Ugh!
For one, I do hate to see a comic convention get canned at any level… even though there is going to be other local conventions that will fill the void. The most unfortunate part is that they’ve decided to cancel at the last minute. I can’t imagine how many peoples’ plans got fucked up over it.
Alas, what can we do at a time like this?
Fortunately for all of us SoCal residents, our geek ally, Comikaze Expo have stepped up to the plate. Last night, they’ve announced on twitter and facebook that attendees can redeem their Wizard World LA ticket for a $5 admission ticket to Comikaze in November. Pretty sweet deal, right? Not only do you get your WWLA ticket refunded (I hope) but you get a giant discount to attend a different show.
Below is Comikaze’s official statement from their blog.
