Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo

Dad and Mom like, bring us to the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo at McCormick Place April 24-26, okay? And like, we can stay at the nearby and affordable Chicago Lake Shore Hotel!

The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo is so hip it even has its own acronym C2E2, the meaning of which I have no idea! How about Jay and Silent Bob Get Old? Or see Neve McIntosh from “Dr. Who!” David Ramsey from “Arrow!” Jewel Staite from “Firefly!” Sean Astin from “The Lord of the Rings! Booker T, Road Warrior and Animal from the WWE!” Jason Aron, Lee Leshen, and Louis Krubich, the filmmakers of the documentary “Back to the Future!” OMG! And many more!

And the authors will be there! Partial lineup: Charlaine Harris (“Sookie Stackhouse’), Jim Butcher (“The Dresden Files”), Patrick Rothfuss (“The Kingkiller Chronicles”) and many more!

The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo will also feature panel discussions with comic publishers, guest stars and toy manufacturers, costume contests, and the latest in comics, anime, TV and toys! Comic icon Stan Lee will be there to talk about ink infusion tattoos! Are you single? How about Nerd Night Speed Dating?

Walk through the rows of Chicago Comic & Entertainment booths and enjoy art, design, collectible toys, and pop culture fashion. Respawn Entertainment and Project Gaems will be live streaming “Titan Fall!” There will be live stream interviews, fan tournaments, and walk-through game play!

McCormick Place is located at 2301 South Martin Luther King Drive. For tickets and more information, go online to www.c2e2.com.
