C2E2 Convention, Hot Spot for Family Fun

C2E2 Convention, Hot Spot for Family Fun

I have been a comic book fan since childhood. Even as an adult I have not lost my fascination and love for the classic tales of heroism.  Before comic books, there were comic strips.  They were created in 1890 when Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst were trying to capture the eyes of blue-collar workers and new immigrants.  The rivalry between these two publishing icons evolved into a legacy for so many Americans.

I have attended the various comic conventions over the  years, but I enjoy them to their fullest now, as an adult with children.   C2E2 has  added Family and Kids programming to their colorful convention that is comprised, of  ninjas, princesses, heroes, kings, aliens, villains and monsters.   Each character in the comics and the novellas is representative of our realities, history, deepest dreams, fears, challenges and hopes.

C2 E2 is a brilliant way to spend an afternoon with your kids.  I will be present as a guest of the show and as a facilitator of your child's fun.   My company POW Kids Chicago will be offering 5 of the kids programs.  Click here for the full family program.  C2E2 is located at Mc Cormick Place this weekend, Friday, April 26 to Sunday, April 28th.
