FREE ADMISSION! FREE PROMOS!
Same Great Location:
Holiday Inn and Suites 150 South Gary Ave Carol Stream, IL 60188
Meet Artist Caleb King who has done sketch cards for Star Wars, Marvel, Rick and Morty, and lots more!
A little side not about scheduling...
I know that ACE Comic Con has an event scheduled the same weekend. Nothing can be done about that since we work in two completely different worlds. But our room is booked long in advance and meant to coincide with the Philly Show so both shows are possible for a couple of vendors. My suggestion, plan on both. Come see us on Friday and do ACE on Saturday and Sunday. Hope we can see all our Chicago friends at the show!
Caleb King (Surreality, Verse/Chorus) is an illustrator and writer who makes his home in Joliet, Illinois.
Caleb's illustrations focus on minimalist ideas, and pop-culture icons. Using watercolor to bring both tightly rendered objects and innate chaos, he is able to use this beautiful medium to bring to life his own creations and characters we all recognize. His clients include LucasFilm, Marvel, DC Comics, Dynamite, Netflix, AMC, Cartoon Network, Upper Deck, Topps, Cryptozoic, RRParks Cards, and PBS to name just a few. He has worked on properties, including Stranger Things, Spider-Man, The X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, DC Bombshells, Bettie Page, Rick and Morty, The Walking Dead, Mystery Science Theater 3000, and the Star Wars universe, including Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.
He was educated at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Illinois, and holds a Bachelor of Fine Art in Illustration. He travels extensively throughout the United States exhibiting his work, and telling stories.

First Promo announcement was also the last promo announcement for the Spring...
Lady Death Goddess Promo LDGC by 5FINITY
5FINITY went to lengths to get this promo to Chicago in time for the Spring Show. The USPS went to lengths to make sure that didn't happen. So we decided to make this the first promo for the Fall Show.
I will have an alternate card for kids and anyone who would prefer not to have this card.
I will bring my Star Wars Skywalker Saga cards to trade if anyone is interested.
