Dark Horse Editor-in-Chief Scott Allie will host the panels and will lead discussion on a range of subjects sure to please the thousands of fans who annually attend the leading pop culture event. C2E2 will take place in Chicago, April 25 – 27 in the South Building at McCormick Place Convention Center.

    “It is fantastic that Dark Horse is bringing so much talent and creative energy to our show,” notes Lance Fensterman, Global Vice President for ReedPOP. “C2E2 has grown enormously since our first show five years ago and while it’s cool to know that we have built an event where top artists, writers and other creative talent in the comics world can mingle comfortably with so many fans, none of it would have been possible without the support of leading publishers like Dark Horse. I am grateful to them for all the talent and entertainment they provide. This year is their best ever!”

    The Dark Horse panel presentations include:
