Jared and Clint from Alcohollywood (along with photographer/frequent guest Julia) just got back from Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, a four-day extravaganza of comics, celebrities and costumes in Rosemont, IL, and we’ve got coverage! In this special podcast, we give our impressions of the things we found there (Avengers colognes, Poison Ivys, sometimes-misogynist paintings of comic book characters), plus quite a few interviews with groups and organizations there.
In addition to that, we had the unique privilege of getting a few minutes in with noted actor James Hong (Blade Runner, Big Trouble in Little China, Kung Fu Panda), who imparted his wisdom on wine, voice acting, and the state of Asian and Asian-American actors in the film industry today.
Special thanks go to James Hong, Ghostbusters Chicago Division, Gorilla Tango Burlesque, 501st Legion Midwest Garrison, Zombie Squad Chicago, Jurassic Park Legacy and all the other amazing groups that we met throughout the convention, as well as the staff of Wizard World themselves for their graciousness and support!
