Time to start talking this up a bit...

First off we'll announce our Creative Guest: April Reyna

April has colored pages for some of DC's popular titles, and is a trooper on the comic con circuit.
For sketch cards, April has worked on Viceroy's "The Deep", "Insectae", and "Space 2" as well as being announced in the upcoming "Artist's Choice" set. She had cards in Upper Deck's Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. She'll be doing cards for many of Dynamite's upcoming sets including Bettie Page.

April will be at the show both days selling original art, AP Cards, and commissions.
She also did the art for not one, but two of the promo cards you'll get at the door!

Everybody loves promos...

So far, we have 3 promos for FREE at the door.

First one is from Elaine and Tony at Perna Studios


It is P3 from their Creatures of Myth and Legend set. It features art by Peejay Catacutan.

Promos will be 1 pack per person per day.
These will be limited, and an equal amount available each day. So come early to make sure you get one as we could run out.

One more promo is in the works, but until I know it will make it in time I cannot share.

Dinner...

Yes, I still eat so I will be having dinner Friday night. I'm there, so I'm eating at Burger Theory in the Holiday Inn.

Anyone is welcome to join me. I make no promises beyond the fact there will be food.

With the changeover, we have to deal with round tables that don't really move together. Also, last time they told us there could be no separate bills if we sat as one big group. So, we're likely sitting near to each other and in little groups.

The food at Burger Theory is good, and last time the service was OK, but they were still learning the new menu too.

So, anyone who would like to join me about 8:30ish for dinner is welcome.

Ed

Piko, nothing wrong with reaching out to other collectors. But remember 2 things:

Promo packets will be 1 per person per day, so unless someone just does not want the promos you're looking for someone going both days.

I will also point out that dealers get 1 packet per table per day as well. So you might reach out to some of the dealers as well.

The Perna promos are very limited. So it's conceivable that we'll run out. We're dividing them up between Friday and Saturday in equal numbers. So everyone that comes on Saturday has a fair chance if they come early.

Just a few things to think about concerning promos in Chicago

Ed

One dealer I left off the list, and one new one signed up over the weekend:

Iggy's Cards
Iggy brings cards with a dose of fun and attitude. Look for everything from complete sets to single higher end cards here. Just keep him away from Pizza.

Frank's Sports Cards
Frank is bringing his non-sport to the show. Look for Benchwarmer, Americana, Big Bang and more. Check out this first time vendor's table and make him feel welcome.
