Ok, really in a rush to finish up tonight, so no long preamble from me. Just gotta say I'm real happy with what CBR's photographers captured at the convention this weekend. They seem to be everywhere capturing every costumed freak and comic creator at the show. Nicely done, guys! One quick note before we move on to the photos -- I've decided that I'm out of jokes for those wearing Star Wars attire, so I'm just going to be mean to 'em. That's right, I'm gonna be mean. Not mean enough to make anyone cry, but I'm just out of jokes for 'em and this is what happens when I'm out of the jokes.
So, here we go, a look at some of the action at Wizard World Chicago this Saturday. First up, an assortment of photos from Michael Beneke.
Next up we've got Doug Zawisa.
And finally, Jason Smith -- the photo taking machine! He must have sent me over 100 shots from Saturday. Dude, you're everywhere! Everywhere!
|Spider-Punk||Not a bad home-made War Machine costume.|
|Stuart Immonen||So, apparently this is the same guy who was Alan Scott in the previous photo parade. Your Hal Jordan is a big improvement, dude.|
|Greg Land||Tony Daniel and Geoff Johns|
|Jill Thompson||Michael Turner|
|"Veronica Mars" Kristen Bell having some fun.||Kristen talking with a fan.|
|Backpack Action Nightwing||Stupid. (Remember, I'm being mean to the Star Wars dudes)|
|I got nothing.||Vega from "Street Fighter" II. His whole costume doesn't really lend itself to humor, though. So sad.|
|Rogue, with Supergirl's back.||OK, I dunno, but this Superman has an attitude. I can tell. Maybe he's that evil Superman from "Superman IV: Rid The Planet of Nukes."|
|A sidewalk chalk artist works his magic outside the show.|
|Erica Durance ("Smallville's" Lois Lane) at the Sam Loeb College Scholarship Fund Auction||Lust from "Full Metal Alchemist."|
|Cloude Strife from "Final Fantasy VII"||Is this Poison Ivy? Does it really matter if I'm wrong?|
|"Security!"||Ande Parks and Phil Hester|
|Great Batgirl costume and Dorko.||Batman with glasses. Dude, contact lenses make a costume.|
|Brian Wood||OK, in this case contact lenses just creep the crap outta me.|
|Didn't we already publish a pic of this chick?||"Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Mike Meyers!"|
|See, I know she's some character, but here in Los Angeles this is a regular sighting on Melrose Blvd.||More Super Friends.|
|"Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Heath Ledger!"||I dunno, but I kinda like.|
|I'm a bit surprised by the "Shaun of the Dead" costumes. I'm please, though, don't get me wrong. What a movie that was.||Toga Monster Opera Dude?|
|Spidey & Master Chief from "Halo."||Why is Hulk pushing out his chest like this?|
|I really hope the Transformers look better than this in the new movie.||"Mommy, please don't make me take a picture with the lame Star Wars dude."|
|Lock & Load.||"Can I touch your stripes? Please? Come on!"|
|Lame, Dumb, Stupid and I Hate You.|
Late Monday we'll be back with our final batch of photos from Wizard World Chicago.
