Wizard World Austin Comic Con 2013 [UPDATE]

There’s a Con buzz that’s starting to fill the air here in the Nerd Fu dojo. It’s that nerdy electricity that charges our senses which can only mean one thing – it’s time for another Con! We’ve been to the hip city of Austin earlier this year for RTX and now we are returning again for Wizard World Austin Comic Con! This is one incredibly young, diverse, and fun city that knows how to throw a convention and the Nerd Fu crew will be there to experience it first hand.

We’ve got about a month to go until the event kicks off but we wanted to share these details of the event with you:
