Wizard World St. Louis

So, a Khaleesi, a Jedi and a Dalek walk into a convention center...because this is the weekend for the Wizard World St. Louis comic convention. Fans of comic books and the sci-fi/fantasy genre will crowd the exhibition halls at America's Center (701 Convention Plaza; or www.wizardworld.com) to browse the collectibles, take pictures with cosplayers and attend panels on everything from how to get started in the video game business to the history (and future) of Doctor Who. Comic-book stalwarts Gerhard (inker on many issues of Cerebus), Jim Mahfood (Grrl Scouts, Tank Girl) and Michael Golden (Hulk, X-Men and Daredevil) will sign autographs and meet with fans. If you're lucky you might just spot Naomi Grossman, who played Pepper on American Horror Story, walking around -- but you probably won't recognize her out of character. The con is open from 3 to 8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday (May 22 through 24); admission $39.50 to $49.50 per day, or $79.50 for a three-day pass.
Fri., May 22, 3-8 p.m.; Sat., May 23, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sun., May 24, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., 2015
