C2E2 360 REVIEW!

Organized by ReedPOP, C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo) was held this past weekend, April 13th -15th and the colorful and creative event did not disappoint.  Each day held workshops, panels, movie trailer presentations and special guests surrounded by exhibitions of comics and artists.  Shia LaBeouf, John Cusack, Chad Michael Murray, John Barrowman & Sean Astin were just a few of the entertainment guests that were in attendance for autograph sessions.  In addition, comic book fans were treated to the appearance of Top Cow Productions, NUKO Toys (A brilliant company with collectible trading cards apps for the iPad & iPhone), Archaia, VIZ Media, Megaton Crush, Marvel and DC/Scott Snyder (Writer of Batman) & David Finch (Artist/Dark Knight).  Of course, one of my favorite places of C2E2 is Artist Alley where great talents do commissions and sell their art; some were Alvin Lee, Khary Randolph, Shawn Alleyne, William Jamison,  Eric Cooper & many more.

The workshops / panels were awesome & informative as well.  One in particular was held on Friday called Black Comix Lounge where the diversity in the industry was discussed. Hosted by Ytasha Womack, the panel included Stanford Carpenter (School of the Art Institute of Chicago),  Mshindo Kuumba I., Ashley Woods & Turtel Onli.

If you missed C2E2 this year, be sure to catch them next year in 2013.  It was an exciting experience and great time!
