The first ever Washington D.C. Comicon Sells Out!

“We simply couldn’t believe the response when we announced this event! We instantly sold out of vendor tables!” says Baltimore Comicon founder Marc Nathan. “I honestly think it is a show that is necessary in the nation’s capital.” emphasizes Brett Carreras, the promoter of the VA Comicon.

In a unique partnership, the Baltimore Comicon and the VA Comicon have united to bring a show to the Washington, DC area that fans have been asking for…well…Forever!

Brought about by a love of our great country, as well as a genuine desire to be advocates for the comics industry, Nathan and Carreras are working with the area’s top retailers and vintage comic vendors to extend the fun of Free Comic Book Day beyond just Saturday, and will be hosting the first ever Washington, D.C. Comicon the day after Free Comic Book Day on the George Mason University (Fairfax) campus.

“We have a great event lined up!” says Nathan, who’s Reisterstown, MD store Cards Comics and Collectibles will be sponsoring the D.C. appearance of Frank Cho (Liberty Meadows). In addition, Laughing Ogre Comics in Fairfax, VA will be hosting the D.C. Comicon’s appearance of famed illustrator Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night).

“Easy access to the Metro, FREE parking and $5 admission rounds out the fun.” Says Carreras. More information will be forthcoming at the newly created website

The website is designed in a “Blog” style to encourage interaction with the fans…a true first for a national convention, and the promoters encourage feedback. Feel free to post comments, requests and wantlists.
