We spent the whole weekend geeking out at Comic Con. It was a pleasure to meet the original Wonka 5. We'll be reviewing I Want It Now, the newly released memoir by Julie Dawn Cole (AKA: Veruca Salt).
We also picked up a couple of signed copies of Traegonia: The Sunbow Prophecy and The Ember Rune written by K.S. Krueger. We'll be reviewing both of those and running a full feature on these fanciful figures, crafted by greater Chicagoan (and Ren Faire fan) Dino C. Crisanti. They also make gorgeous, magical silver and tiny charm bottle bookmarks that are sure to entice even the most reluctant reader. Check out their world HERE.
We also ran into an old friend, Tasha, whose funky fun ski masks we'll be featuring. We were rockin' the skull and Chewbacca hats, and dug her macabre jewelry.
We'll have lots more in depth info from the Comic Con weekend, so check in with ChiIL Mama like we vote in Chi, IL...early and often.
