Due to some home events I’m only going to make it to the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo on Saturday the 17th this year, but that should be enough time to get a feel for this renewed Chicago comic convention and to meet up with a few people.
Though it’s only one day, I’m excited to see how the convention plays out. This one’s in Chicago proper, it’s at a larger venue (McCormick Place), and the reports from the other Reed-run shows like the New York Comic Con are always very good, so I imagine it will be a fun con.
I was hoping to bring my son to his first show at this one, but with only one day there it’s going to be all business. Evileye Books and I still need to recruit some artists, and I’ll also be speaking to my editor about future plans for The Pack, so chances are once we do that and meet up with a few other folks, it will be a packed day.
I’ve updated the Appearances page accordingly. It’s looking sparse right now, but I’ve got some things in the works for late summer or early fall out East. And yes, we still need to nail down something for Chicago, we just haven’t been getting much love from Chicago retailers yet. Hope to have news there soon.
Meanwhile, I need to keep plugging away at Book 2. Hope to run into some of you at C2E2!
