Baltimore Comic-Con: Hughes! Starlin! Anderson! Blevins! MOAR!

BaltimoreComicCon_logo_nodateY’all know I’m a Harley Quinn addict. So imagine my surprise and glee when I saw that Baltimore Comic-Con just added kickass artist Brett Blevins, whose Harley Quinn Road Trip Special is an breathtaking, beautiful hoot!  (And if you haven’t read it yet, you need to.  It’s fantastic.)

New creators announced also include Mark Texeira (his work on Doctor Strange is gorgeous), Jim Starlinn (um, THANOS. ‘Nuff said.) And of course the amazingly talented Adam Hughes, whose work on Harley Quinn #0 – not to mention his HQ #1 variant cover – still has me drooling.

Read on for the full deets!
