Wizard World Chicago Changes Their Name to Chicago Comic-con?
DC Nation Invades Chicago Comic-Con
Bill M asks:
Wondered if Mr. Perez might ever attend one of the Cons in Minneapolis
MN? Would love to see him and get some things signed but live a long
long way from other big Cons. Or, does he ever sign items which are
mailed to him - with money included for his time and for return postage?
As far as I know, George Perez has never attended Fallcon or other
Minneapolis-based conventions. The closest convention I know that George
sometimes attend is in Chicago.

Not the announcement so much as the event name…
February 5th, 2009 Author The Rev. OJ Flow
Got this press release e-mailed to me this afternoon. The subject
itself wasn’t a biggie for me, though I’m not sure how often Mark
Millar makes his way to Chicago. The event that Wizard Entertainment labels for themselves as struck me as different than what I’d gone to for the last ten years straight.
Congers, NY (February 4, 2009) – Veteran comic scribe Mark Millar is
currently setting Hollywood on fire with properties like Wanted and
Kick-Ass, and now the Scottish sensation will be meeting and greeting
fans at Chicago Comic-Con. Known for his
larger-than-life characters and action sequences that make Michael Bay
movies look like “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” fans are guaranteed a
rip-roaring good time when they meet Millar at any one of his numerous
panels and signings taking place all weekend long.
Millar proved to be the first blockbuster writer of the new
millennium with his groundbreaking and high concept action stories in
both Ultimate X-Men and The Authority. Millar raised the bar for
himself even further with The Ultimates, a series that became the
blueprint for how superhero comics are written in the 21st Century.
Millar has left his mark on nearly every one of Marvel’s heavy-hitting
characters in titles such as Marvel Knights: Spider-Man, Wolverine and,
currently, Fantastic Four with Ultimates artist Bryan Hitch.
