PiercingMetal Thoughts: As we’ve mentioned, we are not heading to this convention but hope that all of our readers in the area who are planning on going have a good time. The Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo is curated by the folks at ReedPOP who you might know as being in charge of the NY Comic Con that we have been attending for the past ten years. Last year, I composed a little convention survival guide which while aimed at the NYCC event can really be applied to most of the big conventions out there. I hope you don’t mind this shameless plug referral to my other website “The Chronicles” of Piercing Ken to review that item HERE. Closing up I wonder who out there in the readership is attending this convention. We’ve never been but would surely love to participate some time in the future. Ciao for now.
