This year Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, better known as C2E2, took place April 13-15 at McCormick Place Convention Center. A smaller, more managable version of San Diego’s Comic Con, C2E2 boasts it fare share of memorabilia and fan favorite celebrities, such as John Cusak and Val Kilmer.
I attended the busiest convention day, Saturday, lured in from Los Angeles by the ‘NIKITA’ video presentation and Q&A session with series star Shane West and Executive Producer/Creator Craig Silverstein. Without giving too much away from the remaining episodes of the season, the two answered fan questions and gave us hope for a third season of this mesmerizing show.
I also attended the Q&A with John Barrowman prior and I have to say despite not being very familiar with Mr. Barrowman’s career I was kept highly entertained throughout his hour long panel. His extremely engaging personality and antics certainly left me wanting to keep up with his future endeavors.
All in all, good times were had in Chicago and while I’d like to encourage more people to check out C2E2, I would hate for it to become as massive as San Diego Comic Con where people have to fight tooth and nail just to be able to attend one day.
