PRLog - Jan. 2, 2013 - NEW YORK -- After taking the entertainment world by storm in his breakout role as “Fonzie” in the popular sitcom “Happy Days” (1975-85), Henry Winkler established himself as an award-winning producer and director, mixing in a few well-placed acting roles like Scream and Waterboy along the way.  Winkler now joins a standout roster of celebrities set to attend next month's inaugural Wizard World Portland Comic Con, Feb. 22-24, 2013, at the Oregon Convention Center.  

After achieving success as “Fonzie,” originally written as a minor character but which soon earned Winkler billing alongside other series stars Ron Howard and Tom Bosley, Winkler quickly transitioned to produce the successful television series “MacGyver” and direct the film Memories of Me, among dozens of off-screen credits over the past four decades.

Winkler, scheduled to appear at Wizard World Portland Comic Con all three days, adds to an already star-studded lineup that includes comics legend Stan Lee, Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell, “Homeland” headliner Morena Baccarin and “Superman” Dean Cain, along with a diverse collection of popular comics creators and a variety of activities, exhibitors and special attractions in the first event on Wizard World's 2013 calendar and the first Wizard World event in the “City of Roses.”

Wizard World Portland Comic Con, produced by Wizard World, Inc. (WIZD.PK), will bring together thousands of fans of all ages to celebrate the best in pop-fi, pop culture, movies, graphic novels, comics, toys, video gaming, television, sci-fi, gaming, original art, collectibles, contests and more.  Admission is free for kids 10 and under, and Sunday, Feb. 24, is “Kids Day,” featuring an array of programming specially designed for children.

Event hours are Friday, Feb. 22, 3-8 p.m.; Saturday, Feb. 23, 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.; and Sunday, Feb. 24, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
