I’ll be appearing at this weekend’s Baltimore Comic Con, held this Saturday and Sunday at the Baltimore Convention Center in the inner harbor. Show hours are 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. The Baltimore show is among my favorite cons, thanks in no small part to the great work by promoter Marc Nathan and his right-hand man Brad Tree. I look forward to it every year, though this year in particular brings some new wrinkles.

I’ll be set up at booth #2307, along with my buddies Lee Moder and Matthew Dow Smith, both of whom will be taking commissions and selling original pages. There might even be a surprise appearance by Nelson Blake 2nd. Lee and I will have copies of Shinku on hand for your purchasing pleasure, with a few other assorted items.

I’ll also be appearing both days at the Amazon Studios booth, #1602, with a sneak peek of Blackburn Burrow #1, by me and Matthew Dow Smith, with color by Jordie Bellaire and a cover by Brian Stelfreeze. The issue is part one of a four-issue adaptation of an Amazon Studios screenplay by Jay Levy, and Amazon will be giving away the Baltimore Comic Con exclusive edition all weekend. So … free comic! Pretty awesome, huh? If you can’t be in Baltimore, don’t worry, issue #1 soon will be offered online for free.

I’ll be signing at the Amazon Studios booth, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and 3-4 p.m. Saturday; and 1:30-3 p.m. on Sunday.

Blackburn Burrow is supernatural historical adventure, set in 1864, as the Civil War rages on. It’s about secrets buried deep in a Georgia mountain, and secrets buried deep in the heart of its ghost-hunting protagonist, known only as Mister.

Last and certainly not least, I’ll be announcing a new project on Sunday at the show, during a spotlight panel with me and artist Jamal Igle. The panel will take place from noon-1 p.m. Sunday in Room 301. Jamal and I will talk about our respective careers, and then discuss our new project (though you might well get a sneak peek of the project at CBR this week).

Baltimore starts a surprisingly (for me) busy fall con season. In the next few months, I’ll be appearing at:

Hope to see you at one of them.

Cheers,

Ron
