Get Your Nerd On at C2E2 This Weekend!

Dust off your Superman t-shirt or your Batman utility belt and get ready for this year's Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo running Friday, April 13 through Sunday, April 15.

Whatever your passion, be it comics, collecting, music, movies or games, there's something here for everyone. Special guests include John Cusack, Sean Astin, Anne Rice and even Svengoolie (to add a bit of local flair). Each day has a variety of programming including guest panels, autograph sessions and a show floor packed with artists, shops and more.

Tickets are available online or at the door. The event is open to the public on Friday at 1pm and Saturday and Sunday at 10am. C2E2 is held in the North Building at McCormick Place, located at 2301 S. Lake Shore Dr.
