CHICAGO – The fan gathering conventions are coming back, and a new one has emerged. The 2022 Fan Expo is the new name for the former Wizard World, which had met in pre-pandemic Chicago for years. The Fan Expo offers the same celebrity meet-and-greets, including Joel McHale (“Star Girl”), Carl Weathers (“Rocky”), Ron Perlman (“Hellboy”), Anthony Daniels (“Star Wars”), Jonathan Frakes (“Star Trek; TNG”) and director Kevin Smith (“Clerks”).

To gear up for the new Fan Expo, HollywoodChicago.com is publishing – for the first time – a series of Exclusive Portraits from the last Wizard World in 2021. Photographer Joe Arce was there, and captured these TV and movie stars that attended the event.
