The first ever Wizard World Nashville Comic Con kicked off on Friday, October 18, 2013. Thousands of fans lined up early outside the Music City Center for the inaugural event. While the lines to get in were long, they moved quickly once the doors opened, and the new, spacious convention center provided plenty of room to walk around.
