Comic and superhero faithful, unite! Wizard World — the annual touring comic convention — returns to Des Moines in May 2017.
Scheduled to take place May 19, 20 and 21 at the Iowa Events Center, the comic con returns to Des Moines for its third year. Headlining stars and programming for the Des Moines event is yet to be announced.
Thousands, many donning costumes of their favorite fictional character, have flocked to downtown Des Moines to attend the event in previous years. Billy Boyd, of "Lord of the Rings" fame, appeared at the Des Moines convention last year, while William Shatner, Iowan Brandon Routh and WWE star Seth Rollins rounded out the celebrity lineup in 2015.
Doors to the convention open at 3 p.m. on May 19 and 10 a.m. on May 20 and 21. Ticket prices are yet to be announced.
