Wizard Entertainment has announced that its 2011 comic convention tour will kick off in New Orleans.

Scheduled to take place at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Centre in January, the move sees the city host the event for the first time.

"We followed the Super Bowl champions all the way to New Orleans this year," said Wizard CEO Gareb Shamus.

"We are thrilled to come to the home of Mardi Gras, the Saints and world-famous Bourbon Street. New Orleans is the perfect place to create the type of pop culture event called Wizard World. We look forward to seeing all our fans there."

Wizard World conventions have previously taken place in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Austin, Dallas and Atlanta. The event is a celebration of comics, video games, movies and more.

The New Orleans Comic Con will take place between January 29 and January 30.
