C2E2: we were there & gave stuff away & everything

C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, in case you didn’t know) had its inaugural show this past weekend, April 16-18, at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. Comic fans from all over came to see what was new from their favorite publishers, meet their favorite artists, maybe get a sketch or an autograph, and generally have a good time enjoying this hobby we all love so much. What’s more, we at Westfield were there!

It was great seeing all the customers who stopped by to say hi, give us some helpful input, and even offer up the occasional outright praise. Your kindness made us blush (or at least we think it was blush – some of us had an awful lot of makeup on …). Anyway, it was also great to meet new friends who we hope will greet us next year as loyal customers and fun to give away some awesome prizes! Although Roger will be dedicating Thursday’s post to Westfield’s adventures at C2E2, here’s a look at the lucky winners along with their swag:


Roger’s Comic Ramblings: A Difficult Question

100 Bullets Vol. 1

by Roger Ash

So, I’m at a party Friday night at which I don’t know most of the people. I strike up a conversation with a friendly couple and we’re soon joined by another couple and have a fun conversation about TV and movies (apparently I’m missing out by never having seen The Wire. Guess I’ll check that out.). In the course of talking with one of the guys, it comes out that I work for Westfield and he asked me what sounds like a simple question: “Are there any comics you’d recommend?” This, or variations on it, is the most common question I get about comics and it’s a more difficult question than it appears. The quick reaction would be to start listing comics I like, but that’s not necessarily helpful. Let me explain.
