The Wizard World Chicago Comic Con herds international artists, writers, and celebrities into the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, creating a superpowered carnival atmosphere. Attendees can wander the pavilion's floor and meet their film- and comic-book idols face to face, asking penetrating questions about their artistic processes, favorite projects, and availability to join a vigilante crackdown on line-cutters. The program features a multitude of guests, including a Friday appearance by Patrick Stewart of Star Trek: The Next Generation renown and weekend-long events with Eisner-Award-winning writer Brian Azzarello, and Vivica A. Fox of Kill Bill and Independence Day. Comic Con guests can dress up in comic- or movie-themed costumes as elaborate as Rube Goldberg's lamest excuse while they circulate the convention center to collect autographs, merchandise, and photos with fellow enthusiasts.
