This is something I’d been hoping for…for awhile now. Plus, it’ll get more folks over to the yearly Drink & Draw at Pratt Street Ale House, a great event for a great cause. (That’d be Team Cul-de-Sac, in case you didn’t already know.)
Anyway, enough blather. I’ma sit down a drool over the guest list….

Baltimore Comic-Con 2014 Announces First Guests!
First Year as a 3-Day Show!
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – December 3, 2013 – The Baltimore Comic-Con would like to extend a whole-hearted “Thank You!” to all of those who helped make our 14th annual show a success! The success of the show would not have been possible without the contributions of our exhibitors, guests, and staff. We would especially like to thank the fans that attended the weekend’s events. Without you, the show simply could not have happened! We are already looking forward to our 15th annual show, our premiere as a 3-day show, which will be held the weekend of September 5-7, 2014.
After years of requests from our fans, exhibitors, and guests alike, we are excited to be able to extend the show to include Friday in 2014! We will also be expanding our floor space yet again for next year’s event.
“We strive every year to outdo ourselves from the each previous year,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Whether it is a larger floor plan or some of the exclusive Friday evening events we’ve slowly been adding or a show exclusive or a scavenger hunt, we always try to find some way to make the coming year’s event even more exciting for everyone attending the show, on either side of the table! And adding a 3rd day and increasing the physical size of the show are just our first steps for 2014.”
And that’s not all we’ve been up to! Even though it’s still early (heck, our 2013 show only wrapped up a couple of months ago!), we are excited to announce an amazing initial guest line-up for our 2014 event! Without further ado…
This year’s confirmed guests for the show include: Marty Baumann (Pixar artist); Jeremy Bastian (Cursed Pirate Girl); Dave Bullock (Batman Black and White); Bernard Chang (Green Lantern Corps); Sean Chen (Amazing Spider-Man); Jimmy Cheung (Infinity); Cliff Chiang (Wonder Woman); Frank Cho (X-Men: Battle of the Atom); Richard Clark (House of Gold & Bones); Steve Conley (Bloop); Alan Davis (Wolverine); Tommy Lee Edwards (Suicide Risk); Garth Ennis (Preacher, The Boys); Bryan JL Glass (Mice Templar); Cully Hamner (Animal Man); Dean Haspiel (The Fox); Adam Hughes (Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan); JG Jones (Green Lantern Corps, Batman Black and White); Justin Jordan (Luther Strode, Green Lantern: New Guardians); Barry Kitson (Empire); David Mack (Shadowman); Ron Marz (Witchblade); Bob McLeod (X-Men: Gold);
