I’ll be attending the Baltimore Comic Con next Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 20 and 21. Baltimore is one of my favorite cons because it’s completely focused on comics: no retired wrestlers, no former TV stars, just comics, comics, comics. That’s one of the reasons it consistently has one of the best guest lists of the entire con schedule. Promoter Marc Nathan, right-hand man Brad Tree and the rest of the staff and volunteers always roll out the red carpet for their guests, and creators return year after year. It’s one of the few shows I actually look forward to, and I always return from it feeling recharged about this work I’m fortunate enough to do. It’s also a chance to catch up with friends in the industry, and make plans for future projects.
I’ll be spending time at both the Top Cow and Deadlands booths. I don’t yet have a schedule for any panels or programming, but I’ll add it as soon as I do. I’ll have copies of Samurai: Heaven and Earth vol. 1 and vol. 2 TPBs for sale, as well as copies of Shinku #1 and #2 (both covers). Come find me and buy some, so I don’t have them bring them home.
