    Where there are hands to be shaken, Rod Blagojevich won't be far away.

    The ComicCon convention isn't all about comics, they say.

    "Wizard World Chicago Comic Con is all about pop culture, and Rod Blagojevich is as relevant to today's news as it gets," said Gareb Shamus, CEO of Wizard Entertainment and Co-Founder of GeekChicDaily.com said in one of the campiest press releases ever." We think the court of public opinion will show him to be a popular figure at the show."

    Blago will host take photos and sign autographs beginning at 10:30 a.m. Saturday in booth 401.
