The Future of Comics will be at the Baltimore Comic-Con!

Baltimore Future of ComicsThe 16th annual Baltimore Comic-Con takes place September 25-27, 2015 at the Baltimore Convention Center.

Out of all the comic conventions, the Baltimore Comic-Con offers the largest family-friendly comics area. Organized and produced by Mark Mariano, John Gallagher, and Chris Mariano, the Kids Love Comics Pavilion is the place to be for kid and young adult comics. This year, the KLC Pavilion will feature over 30 family-friendly comic creators and deliver plenty of laughs, education, and imagination-inspiring workshops at the top of every hour.

Normally at comic conventions, parents and kids meet the creators of their favorite books. This year, the Kids Love Comics Pavilion is switching things up by having the kids on the other side of the table! It’s the Future of Comics Contest. Four YOUNG COMIC CREATORS will win half table spots in our pavilion to sell their comics and art. See the details below to see how you can enter. All entries will be reviewed and selected by the Kids Love Comics “Future of Comics Board.”

  • Submit a short bio and 3 to 5 sample comic pages to marianom@kidslovecomics.net (files can be JPG or PDF)
