The Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, one of the Midwest’s largest fandom expos, breezed through the windy city last weekend. The three-day extravaganza—arguably Chicago’s largest celebration of fandom of almost all types of genres was so jam-packed with panels, workshops, discussions, celebrity sightings, cosplay, and thousands of artists showing off a multitude of wares that it would’ve taken access to a TARDIS to see and experience everything.
