Comic Con is coming to Peoria in November.
The popular event for fans of comic books and superheros will be at the Peoria Civic Center Nov. 3-5.
Peoria is joining 18 other cities in hosting the traveling event. Celebrities, including Matt Ryan from TV’s “Constantine” and Craig Parker, who played “Spartacus” in Lord of the Rings will meet fans at Comic Con.
Speaking of fans, they’re recommended to dress in costume. And kids under 10 will get in free.
Wizard World Inc., which is not the group behind the highly popular Comic Con in San Diego, is putting on the event.
Peoria is one of three new cities for 2017, along with Biloxi, Mississippi and Winston-Salem, North Carolina to host the traveling Comic Con.
