This weekend, the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo kicks off its second year in the Windy City's McCormick Place. Sadly, none of the staffers here at ComicsAlliance are going to be in attendance this year, but in a bit of wishful thinking, we discovered that for a relatively new show, C2E2 has a lot going on.
So much, in fact, that it might be a little overwhelming, even for a seasoned con-goer.
Despite the fact that we're usually pretty vocal about the stuff we like, comic book fans are notoriously hard to shop for. Not only are a lot of us already on a weekly schedule of buying exactly the comics we want every Wednesday, but the difficulty non-readers have in telling Superman from Spider-Man has led to pretty much everyone I know getting a stack of completely random back issues from a friend or relative. It's pretty much a comics-reading rite of passage.
But believe me, it could always be worse, and to prove it, I've scoured the Internet for ten of the absolute worst presents a comic book fan could get! So this year, when you open up that present to reveal your fourteenth full-screen copy of The Dark Knight, smile and say thanks, 'cause at least you didn't get this stuff.
And if you do get this stuff... I am so, so sorry.
