After holding successful conventions in New York, Arizona, and Seattle, ACE Comic Con has already announced its next event – Chicago. The announcement was made last month, but tickets, photo ops, and autographs are now available for purchase.

The initial announcement was quite a splash, with actors Josh Brolin and Tom Hiddleston being the first guests. Today, it was announced that Zazie Beetz will be attending as well. Currently, Saturday and Sunday autographs for both Brolin and Hiddleston are completely sold out. Hiddleston’s Saturday photo op, as well as his Saturday Groups A and B VIP tickets are sold out as well. Don’t be dismayed, though – the convention will certainly be adding more guests, as well as possibly more autographs and photo ops.
