Baltimore Comic-Con is this weekend! 2-4 September! Let’s get to the last bit of info you might need if you’re still on the fence about coming.
American Mythology Productions will be there as a featured publisher. I hadn’t heard of them before, but it seems like they have some pretty neat nostalgia titles that they could potentially do some great stuff with: targate: Atlantis, The Pink Panther, The Three Stooges, Equilibrium, The Land That Time Forgot, Zombie-Proof, and Werewolves vs. Dinosaurs.
As usual, they’ll have a costume contest – this year on Saturday at 3pm. In addition to the prizes I’ll be listing in just a moment, each winner gets the great prize of free admittance to next year’s Baltimore Comic-Con!
