Baltimore Comic-Con Expands by One Very Important Guest – A Baby!
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – August 17, 2010 – Todd McFarlane, Geoff Johns, Sergio Aragones, Howard Chaykin, Frank Cho, Adam Hughes – sure these guests (and many others!) will rock the Baltimore Convention Center August 28-29, at what has become the country’s largest convention all about comics. But one very special guest has been added to the list of attractions, courtesy of show owner Marc Nathan and his wife, Shelly — namely, their new bouncing baby boy, REESE AARON NATHAN!
Reese, a one-of-a-kind, limited edition premium, debuted in Baltimore on Thursday August 12, 2010 at 9:50 AM. Still in mint condition, the future Baltimore Oriole (named after Pee Reese and Hank Aaron) weighed in as an oversized edition, at whopping 9.38 lbs, 21 inches long. Mom Shelly was in perfect health as well, and Reese and family were expected to head home from the hospital today.
“We’re happy to add one more guest to the roster,” said Baltimore Comic-Con Executive Director and head lullaby singer Brad Tree. “Although we are concerned by Reese’s strange dietary demands, Shelly has said she has what it takes to keep Reese happy.”
No signing times have been announced yet for Baby Reese, but his appearance is eagerly anticipated by all the volunteers and staff of the show, and the Harvey Awards may never be the same!
Our congratulations and love to Marc, Shelly, and Reese-see you in Baltimore!
