Wizard World Chicago Comic Con This Weekend

Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con begins today at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois and runs through Sunday. Tickets for the convention can be purchased online. As was the case last year, it does not appear that DC Comics has any plans to appear in an official capacity at the event. Nonetheless there will be Superman related events all weekend.

Artists and creators appearing include Brian Azzarello (Superman: For Tomorrow); Bill Sienkiewicz (Superman: Day of Doom); and Ethan Van Sciver (Superman/Batman). The celebrity guests include a trio of actors from “Smallville”: John Schneider (Pa Kent on “Smallville”); James Marsters (Brainiac/Milton Fine on “Smallville”; Lex Luthor in “Superman: Doomsday”); and Rekha Sharma (Dr. Harden on seven episodes of “Smallville”). In addition, TV’s Batman, Adam West, who played in Superman’s world as a guest on “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” and as part of the Super Friends team on “The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians” and “Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show”, will be in attendance with Boy Wonder Burt Ward.

James Marsters will be appearing at a panel on Saturday from 11:35 AM to 12:10 PM in Room A. Adam West and Burt Ward will be at a panel Saturday from 2:40 PM to 3:15 PM in Room A. West and Ward will also be hosting a cocktail party Saturday at 7 PM at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare. Marsters will be hosting a concert, photo session, and Q&A also on Saturday night.
