Guests are invited to wear cosplay for reduced cover before midnight! If their costume is fantasy/sci fi (and not just a “Winter Is Coming” t-shirt) they’re in for $2 off before midnight! And if they’re feeling even more bold, they can walk the cosplay runway and win big prizes like a matching set of Batman pint glasses and Bat signal ice trays, a gift certificate from Chicago Comics  and free drinks!

The cosplay runway will be judged by celebrity judges Tim Seeley (writer of the best selling comic book “Grayson” and co-writer of “Batman Eternal,”) Chad Sell (artist extraordinaire known for RuPaul’s Drag Race art and independent comics,) and Brett Mannes (director of The pH Comedy Theater’s Assemblers series and former host of the Comic Book Queers podcast.)
