The 3rd Annual C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo) has returned to McCormick Place located at 2301 S. Lake Shore Drive from April 13-15th 2012.
C2E2 is touted as Chicago's Pop Culture Event, there is something for everyone from hardcore fans of comic books to entertainment enthusiasts. This Chicago comic con (comic convention) is in its 3rd year and the buzz for it continues to grow.
This is a place where serious collectors can find rare comic books and graphic novels, in addition those new to the industry can browse and learn a great deal, from how to break into the comic book industry as an illustrator or writer. Of course, those who love entertainment will not have a difficult time spotting their favorite actor/actress from a t.v. show or movie. You'll be surprised who you'll find on the itinerary. I would recommend going to the C2E2 website and click on My Show Planner where you can see what artists will attend as well as, the different panels and events and create an agenda for yourself. Some events include:
1. Voltron: Form Blazing Comics Panel on Saturday and Sunday a panel demonstration for kids on creating a cartoon
2. A C2E2 Charity Art Auction
3. A big hit for families is C2E2 Kids’ Day on Sunday April 15.
4. Speed Dating (that should be interesting.
