Baltimore Comic-Con’s Yearbook Returns in 2016 with Archie Comics
The Baltimore Comic-Con‘s Yearbook returns in 2016, celebrating the creators appearing at the show taking place Friday, September 2nd through Sunday, September 4th, 2016. This book of art features interpretations of characters from Archie Comics, sometimes in conjunction with their own creations, in a celebration of creator-owned properties.
Beautifully designed by returning guest and Love and Capes creator Thom Zahler, the book comes in a standard and, for VIP ticketholders, a limited VIP cover edition.
The Archie Comics line of comic books is one of the most successful, longest-running, family-owned brands in the history of the comics industry. Starting publication in 1941 as MLJ Magazines, Archie Comics have sold 2 billion comics, are published in a dozen different foreign languages, and are distributed all over the world. Archie Andrews first appeared in Pep Comics #22 in December of 1941, and appeared in its longest-running title, Archie Comics, since winter 1942 until its relaunch in July of 2015. Archie Comics has spawned characters whose popularity have spilled over into other media and who have become part of popular culture. Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Josie and The Pussycats are just some of the many legendary franchises that are part of the Archie Comics Library which have been adapted to stage, the small screen in cartoons and live action, the large screen, and products and goods of all shapes and sizes.
Once again, the popular scavenger hunt returns in 2016! When you buy the book, you’ll get a list of over 75 Yearbook contributors and their table numbers. If you succeed in your hunt, you can get your choice of bonus prints!
