So- here’s the thing. Sometimes you just have to ask for what you want in life. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t.
I’m excited to announce that I’ll be covering Wizard World Chicago Comic Con as a member of the press. (What? I know, so legit)
Although there will be plenty of on screen star power in attendance, my angle is going to be more taking kids to a comic con as well as interviewing as many artists and authors as I can. I’m also looking forward to complimenting as many folks as possible on their awesome cosplay skills. I’ve never been so I’m not sure what to expect besides the fact that I’d better give myself a budget and call everything I buy a Christmas gift?
I’m thinking of buying a ticket and taking Declan with me Thursday before the crowds descend. I am planning on attending some of the big name panels on Saturday and Sunday. Namely, all the Dr. Who people, Stranger Things, Machete, and fellow Chicagoan John Cusack who I hope will talk some politics.
If you are in the Chicagoland area, you should check it out. It’ll be at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, and it’s walkable from the blue line stop if you are headed out from the city.
