Chicago ComicCon (Wizard World Chicago) has come and gone all too quickly once again!

It’s one week until Chicago Comic-Con starts, and ASM plans to have more coverage than ever before! I will be handling pictures of the displays, the booths, the games, and whatever nice geeky stuff I find. My cosplay cohort, Rogue Z, will be covering the costumes of Saturday and Sunday. If you’re going to be there, keep an eye out for the ASM logo and say hi!
To whet your appetite, we uploaded our past coverage to our ASM Geekly Rewind Gallery. You can check out all the links below. If there’s anything you would like to see, drop us a line via the comments section, Twitter, Facebook, or E-mail!

SDCC 2011 may be over, but it’s still convention season somewhere! This weekend, ASM heads to Cyphan 2, a fan-produced sci-fi/fantasy convention in Rosement, IL. Cyphan is run by a friend of the site, and we like to support local conventions whenever possible. Will we see you there?
And after a two week break, we head right back to Rosemont for Chicago Comic Con! We’re looking forward to seeing guests from Star Trek, Buffy, Firefly, Torchwood and more, plus see all the cool costumes, Artists’ Alley, the dealers… it’ll be another fun weekend!
If you are at the convention, keep an eye out for the ASM logo. Stop and say “Hi!”
