Comic Legends gather for the 2013 Baltimore Comic-Con!

George Perez, Adam Hughes and Cliff Chiang.

I have been attending comic conventions for 10 years, starting with local cons in the Philadelphia area. In the last 4 years, I have been lucky enough to expand my travels and attend shows all around the country. What makes a great show? The guest list and the hard working people who are organizing the event. The Baltimore Comic-Con falls into the category of one of the best. It is a favorite among con goers and I am thrilled for this years show which features an impressive guest list of legends and favorites from the comic book industry.

The Baltimore Comic-Con stays true to their roots and origin. It's about the comics. With a large selection of writers and artists, their 5th Annual Costume Contest and the Harvey Awards Ceremony, there's plenty to do for geeks of all ages. A large selection of retailors and exhibitors will also be on hand selling everything from toys to statues and comics. The guest list includes talent such as David Finch, Amanda Conner, Mark Waid, Frank Cho and Joe Staton just to name a few. A complete list, which is still being updated, can be seen on their website:

The event will be taking place Saturday and Sunday, September 7th -8th. A weekend pass is only $40.00 ($42.39 with a service fee). Compare that to the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic-Con, which is charging the outrageous price of $50.00 for a one day pass online, $60.00 at the door (a show that is focused on booking actors both relevent and irrelevent  rather than comic talent). Tickets for the Baltimore Comic-Con can be purchased here:

This will be my second time attending the show and I am very much looking forward to it. I'll see you in Baltimore!
