Annually the Chicago lakefront’s is transformed into a sea of Stormtroopers, Jokers and characters you’ve never even heard of, all clamoring to get into McCormick Place for another C2E2. According to their website “The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo – also known as C2E2 – is a comic book and pop culture convention spanning the latest and greatest from the world of comics, movies, television, toys, anime, manga and video games. From a Show Floor packed with hundreds of Exhibitors and Artist Alley members, to Panels, Autograph Sessions and screening rooms featuring sneak peeks at upcoming films and television shows…” We couldn’t have said it better.
This year CinemaJaw was treated to some time from guest Ming Chen. Ming became involved with Kevin Smith after making a fansite dedicated to the movie Clerks in 1996. He has participated in several podcasts for SModcast including Tell ‘Em Steve-Dave!, Puck Nuts, and co-hosts I Sell Comics! In 2012 he began starring with co-workers from Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash on Comic Book Men which airs right after Walking Dead on AMC. Ming joins us to tell us his story, what Summer Movies he is most excited about, his love for podcasting and his take on the new Indiana Jones movie.
In addition to talking to Ming, we were able to record some brief thoughts on Superman Vs. Batman with several of the costumed con-goers in attendance. We captured some interesting thoughts on the matter. Plus it is time for our Summer Movie Preview… Jam packed ‘Jaw as always!
Sit back, and crack open a can of pop culture for your ears!
