This weekend is C2E2, one of the biggest comic-related events in Chicago. Accordingly, we’ve rounded up a couple of suggestions for events to check out. Some of these are our own, some are events being put on by members or friends of the group, some are just plain cool/interesting. There’s a little of something for everyone here. I’ve included links, where appropriate, and I’ve noted which events are sponsored by our group with an asterisk.
