Nerds, geeks and pop-culture junkies descended on Chicago in droves last weekend for the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo, also known as C2E2, to preview the must-have comics, movies, video games and more for the coming year.

The three-day event included screenings of new films and trailers, panel discussions and special guest presentations, as well as more than 700,000 square feet of exhibitors showcasing comics, apparel, collectibles, video games and more.

Autograph sessions with artists, actors, comics, writers and more were scheduled throughout the weekend, and guests included John Cusack, Axel Alonso, Sean Astin, and author Anne Rice.

Even actor Shia LaBeouf showed up at this year's convention, which has a reputation for its attendees doning some quite elaborate costumes that pay homage to fan-favorite comics and films, the Chicago Tribune noted.

See video above for a tour of C2E2's first day, and check out photos from the weekend below:
