True to comic book form, former Governor and barely-convicted felon Rod Blagojevich was a key attraction at Saturday's Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, where comic book fans paid $50 to $80 for his autographs and photos. CBS 2 reports:
In a room where fans swarmed the captains of the SS Enterprise, Anakin Skywalker and Batman, Illinois’ own larger than life character, Rod Blagojevich, attracted as many if not more of his own groupies Saturday.
The ex-governor repeatedly smiled and posed with admirer after admirer at the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont.
Despite the presence of some 500 actors, artists, writers, pro wrestlers and models, Blagojevich was touted atop the show’s website and enjoyed prime real estate on the convention floor with a booth near the entrance. While Blago got no appearance fee, he kept proceeds from autographs ($50 each) and photos ($80 a pop).
