Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2)
Of Chicago’s two comic conventions, C2E2 is the newest but it’s already the strongest. In the last few years, it has increased its scope from corporate publishers to self-made artists. Held at McCormick Place, booths and tables full of comic books and memorabilia are available for sale during the weekend festival. Movie screenings, video-game stages and more supplement the expo. Standouts include discussions with celebrity guests, panels comprised of comic book writers and artists and attendee costume contests.
