C2G2 at C2E2 (Count & Countess Gregula at Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo - Part III)
It's C2E2 2012!
Greg & Linda from Count Gregula’s Crypt made their annual trip to the Chicago Comic Entertainment Expo (C2E2) in April 2012 at McCormick Place in Chicago to Go Geek! In our humble opinion, C2E2 2012 vas the BEAST one yet! Now let's start things off vith a few SHOUT-OUTS! Please vatch this video...
One of the highlights of C2E2 2012 vas star of Hollywood Treasure and CEO of Profiles in History, Joe Maddalena (pictured below vith actor Sean Astin) vith some amazing Marvel items like the hammer from Thor, the Captain America Harley motorcycle, the Captain America shield encased in ice and of course the Captain America costume!
Speaking of Sean Astin, here is an interview that Greg conducted vith the Lord of the Rings trilogy actor. One time ONLY addition of Cousin Jessi helped vith a few "interesting" (and a bit strange) questions. Let's just say that she has mysteriously disappeared from any future interview opportunities on Count Gregula's Crypt.
Batmen, a Bunny and Kitty Zombie! Oh, my! Cosplayers are alvays the BEAST part of C2E2 as you can see from the photos! Come as you are or come as someone else. The sky's apparently NOT the limit! ;-)
Lastly, to top off the geekend at C2E2 2013, local hometown A-list actor John Cusack made a memorable appearance to promote his new movie The Raven. I have to say the Q&A session had to be one of the most bizarre I even seen since there vere hardly any legitimate questions. Most of the requests vere for photos vith him, autographs and even a kiss. Vell, at least Mr. Cusack took it all in stride and vas very gracious. On a side note: John's sister Joan Cusack lives right near my gravyard shift and I hope to interview her in the future at some point. Stay tuned.
