It will take place April 26 - 28, 2013 in the West Building at the McCormick Place Convention Center.
"Each year I am always encouraged by the tremendous support that DC Entertainment provides at our shows," notes Lance Fensterman¸ Group Vice President for ReedPOP and Show Manager for C2E2. "This year is obviously no exception and this early announcement is a great way to be setting the stage for C2E2. The poster art is a key element of our show and a critical part of our marketing strategy. This year's image reflects the strength and dynamism of C2E2 and I am incredibly grateful to Tony Daniel for contributing his time and effort on our behalf. He is a brilliant artist and he has created what will be a lasting image for C2E2 in 2013."
Once again, DC Entertainment will have a presence at C2E2 with an interactive booth where fans will have room and opportunity to meet with creators and staff.
