The 2017 Chicago Auto Show is about to kick into high-gear, and the Dodge and SRT brands are rocking the high-performance automotive world once again, bringing a huge burst of American power, acceleration and best-in-class tow capability to the three-row SUV segment with the new 2018 Dodge Durango SRT  (the fastest SUV in its class).

Fast-forward two years, and here we are gearing up for #CAS17, and the folks at Ford have revealed their plans for this year's show. Yes, the GT will be there, but this year looks to have a focus on function, and they're leading things off with the first public debut of their all-new Expedition. Check out some highlights of what's to come...

2017 CAS LogoAt its world debut last month, Toyota Motor Corporation President Akio Toyoda dubbed the 2018 Toyota Camry a "sexy" ride. Is it?

After attending Wizard World events for nearly two decades, including a couple as a creator/guest myself, I've always wondered why they didn't formally start including music into their mix. After all, there's been many artists that have appeared at their events, including Static-X, Twiztid and Insane Clown Posse - all promoting comic titles. Last year, Wizard World Music tested the waters for bigger things, with performances by Grimes and The Pretty Reckless, and today comes news that Wizard World Touring has launched in partnership with veteran music and technology executive Nick Turner. The new unit "will bring vibrant live entertainment to Wizard World shows, building on the Wizard’s initiative to create an atmosphere of a weekend festival at every Wizard World show." First up: a club tour by KISS frontman (and no stranger to comics) Gene Simmons, complete with appearances at five Wizard World Comic Con events.
