The Con They Didn't CancelAccording to a press release circulated Wednesday, writer Mark Millar (Civil War, Marvel 1985) will be the Guest of Honor later this year at Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con.

Veteran comic scribe Mark Millar is currently setting Hollywood on fire with properties like Wanted and Kick-Ass, and now the Scottish sensation will be meeting and greeting fans at Chicago Comic-Con. Known for his larger-than-life characters and action sequences that make Michael Bay movies look like “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” fans are guaranteed a rip-roaring good time when they meet Millar at any one of his numerous panels and signings taking place all weekend long.

Chicago Comic-Con is August 6-9, 2009 at the Donald E  Stephens Convention Center.
