Motor City Comic Con Cosplay Gallery

Motor City Comic Con 2017 is in the books! We had an absolute blast during our time at the con, and there were plenty of exciting moments during the weekend. One of our most favorite things about attending any comic con, is the devotion of fans to cosplay a character from their favorite franchise.

C2E2 2017 Wrap Up

The annual C2E2 Comic Con was held at the McCormick Place Convention Center this past weekend. My wife Maria and I made the trip down to Chicago to take in the sights and sounds that are attracted to Chicago during the con. Scores of comic book and pop culture fans pack the McCormick Place to check out the media guests, rare collectibles, and unique cosplay on display. The event runs three days, with dozens of panels and signings to take part in. We had a few specific goals in mind, and wanted to partake in as much con madness as we could.
