Baltimore Comic-Con by Drew Bittner ( 06 October 2008 / ) - Baltimore Comic-Con is NOT the monster that the San Diego Comic-Con has become. It is much smaller, though it boasts an impressive roster of creators (particularly artists) and a strong dealer's room. For a regional con, it's kept its focus on comic books rather than the vast array of comics-derived media, which is appealing to longtime readers like yours truly.

In short, it's a great place to go if you want to enjoy meeting pros, talking about the books, and finding that rare back issue (or piece of original art) you've been dying to get since you were 11.
