This past Saturday, I had the privilege to spend the entire day at McCormick Place in Chicago, attending C2E2: The Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo. It was an extremely productive day for me, and I had the honor to meet some great people within the “Geek Culture” world. While I did get to spend some time at the big boy tables, like Marvel and DC, I made it a point to get to know the “Up and Comers.” Some of the things I found were nothing short of awe-inspiring.
I plan on sharing my findings with the readers here in C2E2-centric posts over the next few days, as well as follow up articles, interviews, and podcast specials. Here are just a few of the nifty gems that I came across and will be writing more about:
1. A Tabletop RPG set in a Post Apocalyptic future, in the aftermath of a Zombie invasion.
2. A company focusing on making miniatures for games, including Zombies (aptly titled Box-o-Zombies) which pair perfectly with #1.
3. A brand new fantasy setting that will span the course of many comics and graphic novels, as well as book series.
4. Fun mobile apps to make finding comics, and soon more types of media much, much easier.
Keep your eye on Vagary this coming week and beyond for write ups of some of the cool stuff I saw or experienced at the show, as well as interviews and guest spotlights on the website and future episodes of Vagrant Gamers.
