C2E2 2020: Panels to Attend

Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2)

This weekend marks yet another C2E2 taking place at the South Building of the McCormick Place in Chicago so here are some recommended panels to attend.

Before I get into the panels, it’s going to be cold for the first two days of the weekend.  As such, you might not want to lug your heavy jacket all over the show floor and panel rooms.  The South Building of the McCormick Place will have a coat check that will cost $3 per jacket.  Check the FAQ on the C2E2 site for more information!

On the show floor front, the Marvel and DC booths are always a must whether it’s for photo ops, giveaways, or autograph signings.  This year, I’d encourage you to also stop by the Legion M booth (#918).  In addition to that, check out the Museum of Science and Industry booth (#227) for a preview of this year’s Marvel exhibition.

Due to scheduling conflicts, the world premiere of Marvel’s Storyboards with Joe Quesada is no longer taking place on Saturday afternoon.  DC canceled their Meet the Publishers panel following Dan DiDio’s exit from the company.
