Team Gregula has once again invaded Wizard World Comic Con Chicago, which took place at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL the weekend of August 23 – 26, 2018. As usual we had a spooktacular time! The hot days of summer can be a bummer, so this event is always the perfect way to cool down.
Count and Countess came out on Friday instead of Saturday this year as it is less crowded and easier to see the celebrities. We met Michael Rooker who played Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy and Merle Dixon on The Walking Dead, he was cool and hilarious to talk to. We also got to meet cartoon voice actors Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche, who were the title characters in Pinky and the Brain . It was an honor to meet them as they were our childhood!
This year had a definite Ghostbusters theme, especially since director Ivan Reitman made an appearance on Saturday. Unfortunately we didn’t have an opportunity to meet him but there was still some really cool film related stuff on display.
Artists Alley at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago is also a must to visit. There were tons of fun collectibles on sale and a chance to meet famous cartoonists like Bob Camp and Phil Ortiz!
Last but not least are the many cosplayers who came out in force over the weekend. There were the usual comic book and cartoon characters on hand but Team Gregula was particularly excited to see a lot of horror dress up this year!
Team Gregula had a great time as always at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago and can’t wait to see what is up for 2019!
