This is a fantastic, family-friendly convention and is a great introduction for those who are a little hesitant to jump into the big cons. Adults are only $8 ($12 for a two-day pass) and kids under 12 are free. And just to make your day everyone gets to choose a free comic book and backpack when they enter.
It starts Saturday at 10 am in building #1 at the Dupage Fairgrounds, located at 2015 Manchester Rd, Wheaton, IL 60187.
The guest list includes Disney animator Philo Barnhart, who has worked on classics such as Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and the 80s classic Secret Of Nimh.

Local artist Christopher Mitten will also be there; he has contributed work for Dark Horse, Oni Press, Image, DC Comics, Wildstorm, IDW, Boom!, 44FLOOD, Black Mask, and Simon & Schuster.
