Baltimore Comic Con recap!

Posted on October 3, 2015 By

So, last weekend was Baltimore Comic Con! I was there helping my sister at her booth. Had a pretty good time, spent money I probably shouldn’t have and in general enjoyed soaking in all the geekiness. :)

This is where I spent most of my time:

table

Unlike last year, where I was ridiculously excited about meeting Dan Jurgens, there wasn’t anyone there I absolutely HAD to meet, but I was lucky enough to meet Eric Talbot, one of the artists on the original Mirage TMNT series. I’m absolutely sure I made a complete fool out of myself, but he was super nice and I purchased this print from him. Serena also met Stan Sakai and he was apparently also a lovely person (I was watching the table at the time but I trust her :) )

As always, I spent some money on new books. What’s the point of going to a comic con if you don’t bring home new comics, eh? Here’s the haul:

Now, those aren’t ALL new. The Mirage TMNT Vol. 3 hardcover is the book I brought from home for Eric Talbot to sign. Also, one book is missing from the pile because, like a dork, I left it under some stuff in the back of my sister’s car and then mistakenly thought I’d left it at the convention somehow. The missing book is Order of the Seers by Cerece Rennie Murphy.

You’ll see a couple Deadlands comics in there. As I mentioned in a comment to my Deadlands: Ghostwalkers review (as it was mirrored at Booklikes), I was really wanting some Deadlands comics in my life, so this was a real treasure to find! One of the creators of the “Raven” Deadlands comic was there and kindly signed the book for me. These are going to be a part of my October Halloween reading, for sure!

Leaving the con was pretty interesting. The Ravens had just gotten beaten by the Bengals and their NFL stadium is just blocks from the convention center, so the traffic was wild.

All together, a great time, met some cool people and (last but not least) saw some amazing cosplay! I’ll leave this post with some of the best :)
