Free Comic Book Day 2013 is just around the corner and Cards, Comics & Collectibles – Baltimore’s Premiere Comic Book Store and the Official News Source of the Baltimore Comic-Con – is pulling out all of the stops for this year’s event! Everyone has been wondering what we were going to do and we’re finally ready to announce it! This is the one you’ve been waiting for!
The full-day event kicks off with an awesome line-up of creators appearing at the store! Adam Kubert, Frank Cho, and Steve Conley will be all signing and sketching at the store throughout the day.
Legendary Marvel and DC Comics artist Adam Kubert, whose most recent work includes Marvel’s Avengers vs. X-Men event and the recently launched Avengers series, will be signing and sketching from 12:00pm – 2:30pm, and again from 3:30pm – 6:00pm. He is the featured artist in DC’s Free Comic Book Day 2013 issue, Superman: The Last Son of Krypton #1.
The son of comics legend, Joe Kubert, Adam started his illustrious career in comics in 1993 drawing Wolverine for Marvel Comics. He was a mainstay at Marvel, working on such titles as X-Men, Ultimate X-Men, and Ultimate Fantastic Four, until 2005 when he signed an exclusive contract with DC Comics. While there, he served as artist on Action Comics, DC Universe: Last Will and Testament, and Batman and The Outsiders Special. In 2009, he returned to Marvel where he remains today.
Frank Cho’s body of work at Marvel includes such titles as New Avengers, Mighty Avengers, Shanna the She-Devil, New Ultimates, X-Men: Schism, and Avengers vs. X-Men. He is also well-known for his creator-owned series, Liberty Meadows, and his work on Jungle Girl for Dynamite Entertainment. Cho, who is currently writing and drawing Savage Wolverine, will be signing and sketching from 4:00pm – 6:00pm.
Award-winning designer, illustrator, and cartoonist Steve Conley has worked on such notable comics as Star Trek: Year Four (IDW), Michael Chabon’s Amazing Adventures of the Escapist (Dark Horse Comics), and JLA-Z (DC Comics). Conley, who is also the creator of Astounding Space Thrills and the all-ages series Bloop (www.bloopstree.com), will be signing and sketching all day.
In addition to the creator line-up, Baltimore’s Z104.3 will be setting up and broadcasting live at the store. Fans can sign up to win a pair of tickets to the Z104.3 screening of Iron Man 3 at the Rotunda Movie Theatre which will be drawn every 15 minutes! Carnival games and an all-ages obstacle course will also be set up for fans to win CDs, movie passes, and items from the movie!
Get your picture taken with Cosplay Girls courtesy of Comic Con Cuties and, as special treat for our fans, Bill Bateman’s Bistro will be set up and offering discounts to fans who come to the store!
“Free Comic Book Day has grown to become such an important event – not just for retailers, creators, and fans – but for the comics industry as a whole,” said Marc Nathan, owner of Cards, Comics & Collectibles. “We are delighted to have Adam, Frank, and Steve signing here, and are so excited for the events we’ll be hosting for the fans!
