Wizard World and Chicago-area 501[c]3 charitable organization ComicBooks! For Kids are collaborating on a program to collect comics at Wizard World Chicago for kids in Chicago-area hospitals and cancer centers, the charity and Wizard World announced.  The program asks fans to bring child-appropriate graphic novels, comics, science fiction books, or similar reading materials to Wizard World Chicago, which is being held August 22-25 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

The books and comics will be collected at donation receptacles near the Special Guest Registration Desk.  Attendees who donate two or more items will receive a free pre-autographed celebrity photo from a selection of previous Wizard World guests on a first-come, first-served basis while supply lasts, one per family donation per day, at Wizard World’s discretion.
