C2E2 2010

Popa and I made the trip to check out the very first C2E2 in Chicago, IL. We got in Thursday with the show not starting until Friday, which gave us some free time to see a bit of Chicago. I enjoyed our commute from O'Hare on the L Train, however, the Navy Pier was very scenic. Best of all, were the Chicago-style Hot Dogs! I really miss them!

Friday, was show time! We got there way too early (like usual) and had a total blast! It is always great to visit with friends like Uko Smith, Jeremy and Kelly Dale, Comfort Love and Adam Withers, Robert Atkins, Chris and Laura Samnee, Brian Hurtt, Jeff Moy, Phil Moy, Jeremy Haun and I am sure I am missing a few!

I picked up my Covers that I have had on lay away with Robert Atkins. Robert is way too nice of a guy and he has gone out of his way to hook us up.

2010 brings the Cranboyz to our theme of Armor Wars! C2E2 was a great place to enjoy that theme, especially with Iron Man 2 right around the corner! Bob Layton being on hand didn't hurt either!

This was set up as a pretty huge show, and the excitement for it was everywhere! They had it set up as a big show with lots of room. You could tell they did put thought into things and were still learning as they went. I don't think the turn out was exactly what they hoped for, but it wasn't bad.

There were plenty fo costumes at this show, and folks seemed to really be trying. There were not too many lame outfits to be seen!

The show did wear us out. Nothing is close and we were always on the go. Overall, it was a good show, a great time and we got some awesome sketches! The trip was worth it and I would do it again!

And special thanks to JLAdam for picking us up in style!
