Baltimore Comic Con is Tomorrow! Here’s the Last Minute Details!
This weekend, September 8-9, 2012, is the Baltimore Comic-Con at the Baltimore Convention Center! We’ll be there, will you?
For the first time, the convention is expanding their Saturday hours, allowing us more time to squeeze panels, comics and comics-related products shopping, the Costume Contest, the auction, and collecting autographs and commissioning sketches from our favorite comics pros and newfound rising talent. The convention will be open from 10am to 7pm on Saturday (and the same 10am to 5pm on Sunday that they’ve had in years past).
The convention also has announced further details about the 2012 Costume Contest: Registration will be taking place in booth #2606, and will cost $5 for adults 18 and older (children 17 and younger are free!). There are 10 categories with prizes for each, and $1,000 up for grabs to the person with the best overall costume! The Costume Contest, presented by StylinOnline.com, will be held on Sunday, September 9th in Room 307-310 upstairs from the convention center floor. Don’t miss it!
Regretfully, they have announced that a few of the show’s guests have had to cancel their trip to the show. Michael and Laura Allred, Keith Giffen, Mark McKenna, Sean Gordon Murphy, Scott Kurtz, Alex Saviuk, Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Connor, and Laura Martin will all unfortunately be unable to make it this year’s event.
They’ve also revealed their 2012 Show Map. You can find it in the 2012 Program Guide, now available at their website at http://www.baltimorecomiccon.com/bcc-2012-program-web.pdf.
