Roger’s Comic Ramblings: Musing about C2E2


I could've sworn KC was here

by Roger Ash

This past weekend, May 16-18, was the first C2E2 (Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo). The event took place at Chicago’s McCormick Place and was organized by Reed Exhibitions, the same people behind the wildly successful New York Comic-Con. Expectations for the event were high due to Reed’s past successes. How did things go? Well, come along and I’ll fill you in as a fan and worker as I was in the Westfield booth this weekend. But first, a slight diversion.

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:
