Windy City Comicon Review

Had a chance to go to the 1st Windy City Comicon yesterday. It was held at 3656 N Halsted in Chicago. Overall not a bad show, but it definitely has a lot of room to improve. I liked the set up in the basketball court which had a nice open feel to the show. On the downside there was a severe lack of Bronze Age and older comics. This may have had something to do with the fact that there were only 8 comic vendors along with 2 or 3 toy/apparel vendors. Most of the comic vendors appeared to only have "hot" comics on there back walls and $1 books in their back issues boxes, which mostly contained books from the past year. The Artist’s Alley section took up the middle of the floor and took up most of the space in the room. They also had a lot of space dedicated to heroclix and magic tournament tables. Overall I would give it a 3 out of 5 X-Men. I am hoping this con becomes bigger and better as the Chicago area needs another con besides Wizard World.
