“America’s Greatest Comic Book Convention!”
The Baltimore Comic-Con is held in the fall annually and hosts a variety of comic creator guests, retailers, and exhibitors, plus events during the show.
The Baltimore Comic-Con (comic convention) is a comic book-oriented fan convention held in the fall of every year since its inception in 2000. Founded by Marc Nathan, owner of Cards, Comics, and Collectibles of Reistertown, MD, the show was originally a one-day show held at the Sheraton Hotel in the Baltimore suburb of Towson. In 2002, after outgrowing its previous venue, the show moved to the Baltimore Convention Center in downtown Baltimore, across from Camden Yards, and was extended to a two-day show. In 2014, responding to demand from attendees and exhibitors, the show became a three-day event.
Each year, the show features marquee-name comic book creators past and present, media guests, publishers, charitable organizations, and vendor booths offering genre-related items including comic book back-issues, limited edition collectible items such as ‘Toon Tumblers and clothing, videos/DVDs, etc. Panel discussions throughout the day feature media guests and comic book industry names presenting information on current and upcoming events, past hallmarks in comic book history, and information on the industry and how to be a part of it.
