Baltimore Comicon!

Had a great time this past Sunday at Baltimore Comicon. Kat and I picked up our BPD comrades Sherin and Martin, then headed north. The drive wasn't too bad, the convention center was pretty easy to find and parking could be found no more than a mile away. We think there was too much going on downtown--between the convention, a ball game and two or three other events, B-town was swamped.


  • Saying hi to Jim Lee (who went out of his way to say hello to us and chat for a minute--very much a class act) [visit Jim's MySpace page and his blog]
  • (Jim also gave us a great idea, by asking if we (BPD) had a table down in the dealer's room; not this year but next year...? I think so!)
  • Meeting Mike Mignola (Hellboy), Amanda Conner (The Pro, Power Girl, upcoming Terra series), Arthur Suydam (Marvel Zombies cover artist), Franchesco (She-Dragon), and a bunch of other folks-- we'll be following up with them for BPD interviews
  • Catching up with artist Pop Mhan (Batgirl, Spyboy) and Tom Raney (Annihilation: Conquest), both ex-WildStormers
  • and finding myself a sweeeet Body Bags two-piece action figure set for $25

After SDCC, Baltimore was so laid back, it was almost like a walk in the park. If you have the time or the inclination to attend a really terrific comic book convention, think Baltimore!
