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.

There’s also a costume contest on Saturday, a complete slate of programming.

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!


  1. I’ve heard so many great things about Baltimore Comic Con — recently Mr. Greg Bennett of Big Planet Comics in DC convinced me I should come down there and exhibit next year.

  2. As has become tradition over the past five or six years, I shall be there on Saturday. If anybody sees a tall, lanky guy dressed as Matty Roth from DMZ, give a wave amidst the slow moving mass of humanity. :D

  3. BCC is a great show that harkens back to the great cons of the 70’s and early 80’s. A real comics show. But those of you there already know that.
