It’s convention season once again ladies and gentlemen,and once again Reed Pop, the lovely people who bring you PAX and New York Comic Con, is bringing their awesome convention programming to Chicago. Slated for April 26 – 28 at McCormick Place, C2E2 is not going to disappoint.
This year will be no different. Already scheduled on their line up is Clerks, Mallrats, and Jay & Silent Bob creator Kevin Smith! KEVIN SMITH people! And as if that wasn’t enough, C2E2 is offering “An Evening with Kevin Smith,” which sadly, is all sold out. *frowny face*Generally speaking, C2E2 takes their time updating their guest list and this year is no different. Personally, I think they do it to build anticipation. Last year they had some amazing guests including John Barrowman and Chicago’s very own, John Cusack. Come on, when have you EVER seen John Cusack at a convention that wasn’t San Diego Comic Con? My guess is never.
Rounding out the early pre-show lineup are the stars from TV’s Batman, Adam West, Burt Ward, and for all you Catwoman fans, Julie Newmar! The con is also bringing in some awesome comic and literary guests like Marvel writers Rick Remender, Kieron Gillan, and Paul Cornell, and Goosebumps creater R.L. Stine. Never fear, C2E2 is certain to add more guests as the convention approaches.
If you’re in the Chicago area April 26 – 28th then we recommend you check out C2E2. It’s a big convention with a small con feel. The programming can’t be beat for a Chicago convention. There’s something for everyone from live Quidditch to comics, writing and drawing classes to costuming, fan panels and guest panels, C2E2 really does have it all.
So if you’re in the Chicagoland area April 26 – 28 and want something cool to do, stop by C2E2 at McCormick Place and hang out. We’d love to see you there!
