Popverse was in Chicago for the the comics + pop culture convention C2E2. Emanating from the fabulous McCormick Place, C2E2 was a three-day show running from Friday, August 5 through Sunday, August 7 - and Popverse was there (and then some!) to report news, interview many talented people, and most importantly - be curious.
Popverse liveblogged big panels such as the Marvel Comics events, , interviewing the talented folk who will be there, and documenting the many curiosities found at a convention this size. We are telling our stories on ThePopverse.com with text, video, and photos, as well as on our various social media channels.
Popverse also livestreamed all of the C2E2 Main Stage panels for our Popverse members and those with a C2e2 digital ticket - this includes (but isn't limited to) the wrestling panel with Mick Foley, Trish Stratus, and Lita; the Aly & AJ spotlight panel; Billy Dee Williams' panel; the Star Wars Inquisitors panel with Moses Ingram and Rupert Friend; and the C2E2 round of the Cosplay Central Crown Championships.
Several additional panels were also filmed and published here on Popverse.
Who from Popverse was at C2E2 2022? The entire Popverse team of Deputy Editor Tiffany Babb, Video Editor/Admin Veronica Valencia, Video Producer Ashley V. Robinson, Staff Writer Graeme McMillan, and even me! Assisting us all weekend was our ReedPop colleagues, Marketing Manager Jeremy Ross and Brand Marketing Coordinator Illianna Gonzalez-Soto.
