Guardians of the Galaxy rock Chicago in 2017 C2E2 poster

Superheroes on Michigan Avenue!

Posted on


It looks to be a good summer for the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Even before Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, and the rest of the gang swing into theaters this May for their much-anticipated film sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, they’ve been battling the Avengers in cartoon form on Disney XD. Now, they’re also leading the poster for one of the biggest comic conventions of the summer.

The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, or C2E2, takes place every spring at McCormick Place in Chicago. This year’s edition is set for April 21-23, and will feature signings and appearances from comic luminaries like Stan Lee. There will also be several actors from the buzziest science fiction and superhero franchises going right now, from Luke Cage actor Mike Colter to the Stranger Things kids.

The poster for C2E2 2017 was drawn by comic artist Declan Shalvey, and features the Guardians soaring through the Chicago night sky. Recognizable Michigan Avenue landmarks, like the Chicago Tribune building, populate the background. Check out the poster above.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out May 5.
