    :lol

    We'll see when the guest list comes out. This may be sacrilege to say in a thread started by Larry Young but I'm not into the comic scene (as much as I do appreciate the art form).

    I would come to meet Larry (of course) as well as hopefully a bunch of you fine folks. If there are a few guests who don't make it up to Canada often that might be just enough icing on the cake to warrant coming!

    Thinking about going on a Saturday. I just despise the drive to McCormick Place even if it's just 45 minutes for me. The guest list is amazing and there's been a big rumor that Stan Lee will be making an appearance there.

    Anyone want to lay bets on if Nicholas Brendan walks out on the con like he did here? ;)

    On the upside, there look to be a couple decent novelists going.

    On Metra? They have a bar car. I'm sure a giant hammer is nowhere near the weirdest thing they've seen. :)

    I just saw this. Right in my backyard. Might have to dust off Han Solo. Do a lot of people dress or is it mostly collectors.

    Lots of costumes, actually. It's like a more intimate but cooler Wizard World.

    I'm definitely there all weekend. Went to Wizard World last year and had a blast.
    So if this is cooler than that, I'm even more excited!

    Hello,

    My name is Janet. I'm new to this forum. I'm from near Chicago and will be attending Chicago C2E2 in April. This will be my first C2E2. I was hoping to talk to a few people who have been and hope to meet some.

    Oh man,
    I was there all three days as well and it was a blast!!
    I didn't want to leave, wish it was longer =] Can't wait til next year.
    In the mean time, if any of you know of any cons in the midwestern area,
    I'd love to know about them...

    It's been more and more like a flea market with the occasional A-List guest and a lot of has beens. Last year was a cluster**** with the organization and crowd control for the panels. Particularly with the lines for the Felicia Day and Bruce Campbell panels that were forming and with the crowd leaving the Patrick Stewart panel AT THE SAME TIME.

    Was at C2E2 on Saturday and had a blast. Next up is ACen!
