Anyone heading to Wizard World this year? This is the first time I'm contemplating going. I'd be heading there alone, probably via bus since I'd probably get lost and end up in Hawaii if I tried to drive to Chicago myself. I'm in Wisconsin, about an hour from Milwaukee.

They just announced Zachary Quinto is going, so I reeeeeally wanna go. Love him!

But I'm nervous about getting down there. :thumbdown:

August 8-11. Since it is at the Donald E, it should be easy to get to. From the Wauk, get to 94 south..keep going, merge onto 294 towards o'hare, head to 190 eastbound and take exit 1b to river road.

I'll probably take a bus to the airport. It says there are shuttles from the airport to all the major hotels (I'd probably call beforehand JUST to make sure). I booked a hotel just in case...free cancellations, so why not?

I'll say "maybe" for now. I'd like to go, probably will end up doing one day at least but the prices suck and I need to save for other things. Ugh... LOL. Well if I do go, I'll be dressed as The Hurricane.

I wish I could go to WWC; I'd love to meet Zachary too!! But I'm hitting Wizard World in St. Louis instead since it's much closer, so I'm super excited cuz Norman Reedus will be there and I'm getting a pic/autograph with him! ^_^

I really wish they would drop the prices. Seriously, I don't even think they have the magazine anymore do they?
