Shia LaBeouf surprised comic book fans at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo last weekend after setting up a table to sell and sign his own graphic novels.
The star is carving out a new career for himself as the writer and artist behind comic book titles like "Stale N Mate, Cyclical" and "Let's... Party" and he went largely unrecognised at the Illinois show as he offered up his cartoon creations to attendees.
LaBeouf admits he made the trip to Chicago on a whim and claims the best part was just "having an opportunity to blend in with 5,000 fans all enjoying the same thing".
He tells, "I just did it for fun. I had some downtime and I've always been a big fan of comic books... I've said it's like singing in the shower. It's very free and without edit."
But that doesn't mean LaBeouf is turning his back on Hollywood: "I do love acting. But this is a fun escape once in a while."
