This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to attend the Wizard World Comic Con in New Orleans, LA where Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder were featured guests. The two Vampire Diaries hunks spent the day doing autographs and photo ops with fans, and then later treated them to a Q&A panel. I really enjoyed my time at this event. It was my first comic con. For those interested, Wizard World has already announced their date for next year, the New Orleans Comic Con is scheduled for January 8-10, 2016. I’ll definitely be attending! For those not in the NOLA area, check out the many other locations they will be visiting! In the meantime, check out some photos from the event below via Just Jared and thanks to Paul Wesley Chronicles for capturing some “Paul-centric” moments from the panel on video! I’ll update the post if any more video surfaces!
