C2E2 - short for the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo - is a convention spanning the latest and greatest from the worlds of comics, movies, television, toys, anime, manga and video games. From a show floor packed with hundreds of exhibitors, to panels and autograph sessions giving fans a chance to interact with their favorite creators, to screening rooms featuring sneak peeks at films and television shows months before they hit either the big or small screen, C2E2 brings the best of popular culture to downtown Chicago!
I'm so excited to be going to my first "Con" this weekend, I'll be heading down to the McCormick Center and taking in everything and probably even more than I can absorb. I've got a few things planned, like getting a sneak-peak at the Iron Man props that are going to be auctioned off Saturday, checking out a new comic book platform for eBook readers and a huge announcement from Threadless!
There's also all kinds of break-out sessions, panels, celebrity sightings and more...I'm just getting excited thinking about it.
I wonder if I should wear my Panda costume?
