The East Coast comics shindig known as the Balitimore Comic-Con takes places this weekend at the Baltimore Comvention Center; highlights include the Harvey awards tomorrow night emcee’d by Scott Kurtz, and an appearance by Stan Lee. The complete guest list is here; it includes people like Jeff Smith, Adam Hughes, Amanda Conner, Geof Darrow, Nick Spencer and so on. In other words, it’s a fantastic place to hang out, maybe buy a sketch look at some comics.
If you’ve always wanted to attend a REAL comic book convention with the emphasis on comics and the people who make them…this is the joint.
The Beat will be there for all the fun, just walking around and saying hi. Please feel free to say hi back!
