Get Your Geek On: C2E2 is back!

The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) is returning to Chicago on April 13-15 for its third year, and it's bigger and better than ever. Think pop culture: artists, actors, chefs (like culinary master Stephanie Izard), creators, authors, tatoo artists. Really cool stuff! And if you're up for it, you can dress up. Think of this is an opportunity to show off your inner superhero.
