Official Press Release

Hero Initiative, the non-profit organization that helps comic creators in need, will be breezing into the windy city of Chicago with the legendary Bill Willingham to attend Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo April 13-15th. Also known as C2E2, the convention will be held at the North Building at McCormick Place located at 2301 S. Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, Illinois.

Willingham, perhaps best known for his work on Fables and Fairest for DC Comics, will be signing and sketching all weekend at booth#704. Proceeds will go directly to Hero Initiative, a win for all!
