McGuireWoods lawyer Carmelo Chimera will deliver the good news any day now. He has selected one of the more than 700 people who entered an essay contest in hopes of winning one of the two comic book stores he owns.

The giveaway is based on the best essay about what makes a good comic book store, and it’s turned Chimera, a 2013 graduate of the University of Chicago Law School who is a staff attorney at McGuireWoods, into something of a local celebrity around the Windy City. He founded Chimera’s Comics during his first year of law school and later expanded into a second location. The comic book enthusiast has also published his own graphic novel.
