It seems I may have to trek out to Rosemont, IL to check out the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con 2011. It’s being reported that Billy Corgan, the singer/songwriter who achieved huge success with Smashing Pumpkins (and who also is a Chicago native) will be appearing at this year’s event. Corgan is bringing with him Resistance Pro, a wrestling promotion, for which he is the creative director. It will be premiered at the event on Saturday, August 18th from 5 – 7 PM.
Also slated to make an appearances during the four day Con (August 11 – 14th) are Christopher Lloyd, James Marsters, Tia Carrere, Lou Gossett, Jr., Sir Patrick Stewart, and of course Bruce Campbell just to name a few.
Single day tickets are $25 in advanced ($35 at the door) and four day passes are $50 ($60 at the door). Check out Wizard World for more details and to purchase tickets.
