Wizard World Cancels Another Show a Month After Last Cancellation Announcement

That’s pretty much it, in the headline. A month ago, Wizard World cancelled two of their remaining 2018 shows. Now comes word that their Sacramento convention, to be held October 5-7, has been cancelled less than a month in advance. That abrupt change doesn’t bode well. Heidi MacDonald has the details:

I’m told that in an email to vendors Wizard World said they were concerned about advertising the show enough and did not want to present a subpar show for vendors, a fairly frank and upfront statement….

BUT let’s thicken this plot a bit: when WW originally announced a schedule without a 2018 show in Sacramento, former WW head John Macaluso moved in with a Sacramento show with the first Fandemic. As soon as Fandemic moved in, WW announced they would be moving back in… but had to postpone it on short notice in a much softer market for comic cons.

That makes their next show Madison, Wisconsin (where I am!) at the beginning of December. Which I needed reminding of — we haven’t heard anything here about it yet.
