Wizard World Produces Some Strange Search Queries

People sure are getting worked up about Wizard World.  Besides just looking at the comment sections on the news sites, I’ve been getting a whole lot of search engine queries.  I can’t tell you if these are people who went to the show or skipped the show, but it’s an odd bunch that tells me people are wondering what’s up with Wizard.

  • 12 queries about Rod Blagojevich/Blago.  (Yes, the convicted felon got them a lot of media converage.)
  • 11 queries about comic publishers. (The trend being why isn’t this publisher here, and it seems to indicate people not having their expectations met.)
    • 9 mentions of Marvel
    • 7 mentions of DC
    • 1 mention of Image
    • 1 mention of Dark Horse
    • 0 mentions of Avatar, but they were actually at the show
  • 7 queries specifically referencing the 2009 show, only 2 referencing the 2010 show.  (I’m guessing people are wanting to compare the guest list and programming to last year and that these are people wondering if there were more comics guests last year.)
  • 3 queries about attendance.  (In Chicago, it’s always asked if you think this is Wizard’s last year.)
    • 2 about 2009 attendance
  • 1 query about $5 Marvel Essentials, which has been the standard Wizard  dealers room clearance price for at least 3 years.
  • 1 query about why Marvel doesn’t have a booth that also contains the URL of an… erotic story archive?!?  (Don’t look at me, I didn’t make the query, and I have no explanations for this one.  I just hope it doesn’t involve cosplay. )

The text of the actual queries (but not number of each) follows, courtesy of Google Analytics:
