Atlanta Trip: Wizard World Comic Convention

Atlanta Trip: Wizard World Comic ConBack in May this year, the Wizard World Comic Convention came into the city of Atlanta.  It was a very opportune time for me as I’m in the city for the about ten weeks to visit our client, Elavon.  The Wizard World Comic Con events are held in different cities in the US with the grandest happening in the city of San Diego.   And this time in Atlanta, event was held for three days in the Georgia World Congress Center, just across the Philips Arena and near the CNN Center.
