C2E2 Returns to Chicago

a brief review of this years comic and entertainment expo. some of televisions brightest stars and Chicago's biggest fans come together to talk comics and film. This event brought out some of the most creative costumes including ghost busters, avengers and the dark knight. all in all it was a good event that was fun for the whole family

The Comic and Entertainment Expo returned to Chicago bringing some the of the best in comics, television and film along for the ride. Many came out in their best costumes resembling their favorite hero and villain to show their love of comics. The three day event was indeed packed for the weekend and getting through the crowds was like downtown Chicago during the work week. Although there was a lot of traffic, the sites there was amazing. From the artwork to the tower of shirts, including the chalk art was an eye catcher. This was a good event for collectors to add more to their collection, or for the sellers to come and get top dollar for their comic books. Books that was sold there for as low five for a dollar. One of the perks of the event is there was a lot of give aways from Marvel comics, calenders and posters, in which the crowd greatly took advantage of.

Besides the comics and action figures, there were multiple signing tables where stars such as included “Torchwood” star John Barrowman, “Ghost Hunters” Jason Hawes and TNA wrestler Victoria gave fans a chance to meet them and get an autograph.

The only part that I found to be unpleasing is the line waiting for the autographs. Of course fans wanted to take pictures with their favorite celebs but the longest I have waited in a line for a name is three hours. Another major disappointment is is last years pamphlet mentioned that the cast of Doctor Who including David Tennant and Matt Smith was supposed to be there and to my surprise, they weren't. I was really looking forward to them showing up and getting their autographs, in my opinion that would have been worth those three hour line waits. Though there are a lot of other things that could of made this a more pleasing event but for it being my first time I must say that I had a great time indeed. The only advice I will give to anyone who is planning on going next year is to not leave your debit card at home, because the prizes there are bananas, and not in a good way. Think E-bay when you have that one bidder who is trying to hike the price so you can keep buying.

This years event was a pleasant to be in attendance of. For those who missed out on a great convention would have to wait until next year to experience the festivities if you are a true comic head. I must admit it was not as big as the one in San Francisco but a good show indeed.
