Every year I look forward to returning to the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2). The folks at Reed Pop have put together a show that keeps growing, featuring the top creators from comics, and stars from movies and television.
(Read my feature on C2E2 2015 for the Chicago RedEye HERE!)
Fans in the Midwest have been spared having to book a flight to the East & West coast cons because they get a chance to rub elbows with the likes of Stan Lee, Kevin Smith, Brian Azzarello and Jill Thompson right here in the Windy City!
In the past, C2E2 has also given fans a chance to interact with the stars of Marvel’s The Avengers , Doctor Who, Orphan Black, Game of Thrones and Agent Carter among many others.
Next year will be no different as today Reed Pop announced that the stars of the hit television show Supergirl, Melissa Benoist (Supergirl/Kara Danvers) and Chyler Leigh (Alex Danvers) will be appearing at C2E2, March 18-20, 2016!
According to Reed Pop, this is the first time they will be attending a convention together to participate in a Panel and Autographing sessions.
Given the tremendous popularity of the show, this is going to be a hot ticket indeed!
Now heading into its seventh year, C2E2 is heralded as “THE pop culture convention in the Midwest.” It’s a chance for the Chicago fanboy/fangirl/cosplay communities to get out and celebrate the films, shows and characters they love!
(I even recorded my 5 on 5 video for Redeye right on the show floor with the mighty Avengers!)
