CHICAGO – Legendary is one way to describe C2E2 – the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. Comic book and pop culture fans gathered at McCormick Place in Chicago from April 26-28, 2013, for three days of celebration with their favorite comic, movie, game and television celebrities, and was there.

One of the highlights of the expo were two stars from the hot HBO epic series, “Game of Thrones,” Natalie Dormer and James Cosmo. Like many of the celebrity participants, they held a forum at which fans asked questions about the current season. AMC’s “The Walking Dead” also was also represented, with Laurie Holden and Chandler Riggs holding court. And there were old favorites like Julie Newmar and Burt Ward of the 1966 classic TV series “Batman,” signing autographs and greeting admirers.
