Baltimore Comic Con 2011 Report

This year’s Baltimore Comic Con was an unparalleled success with a huge upswing in attendance. This may have been partly due to the appearance of comic book superstar Stan Lee, who looked spry and excited to be meeting the long lines of fans who came out for photos and autographs, but every table from artist alley to dealers had fans looking for art and comics. Baltimore continues to be one of the best conventions in the country dedicated to comic books.

Artists like David Finch, Amanda Conner, Cliff Chiang, Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, and more had full sketch lists within the first hour of the show on Saturday and popular writers including Mark Waid, Scott Snyder, and Jason Aaron faced throngs of fans looking for signatures every time they sat down. Indie comic stars Jeff Smith and Stan Sakai held a fun panel about their long history in comics working on their titles Bone and Usagi Yojimbo and the trial and tribulations of adapting their story to the big screen. The Harvey Awards were held on Saturday night with the comic eite rubbed elbows (check out The Beat for more coverage).
