It goes by many names: C2E2, Chicago Comic Con. But its more formal title is The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. And what is it, you ask? Well, it’s really something else if you’ve never been to it.
Okay, so that didn’t answer the question but this will: Chicago Comic Con is a convention that encompasses everything from the wacky universe of comics, television, movies, toys, anime, video games, and manga.
In short, it’s a fabulous festival of popular culture. And the 2013 edition will be descending on Chicago beginning April 26 and continuing through April 28.
There will be hundreds of exhibitors, oodles of sneak previews of TV shows and movies, and a bunch of panels featuring special guests from the comics’ side, the entertainment realm, and the literary world.
Attendees will also get a chance to mingle with the creators of their favorite art form during the three-day extravaganza that will take place in the West Building at McCormick Place, North America’s largest convention center.
