Diamond Comic Distributors has announced that its 2015 Retailer Summit for comic book specialty retailers will take place September 23-25, 2015 in Baltimore, MD.
“We’re excited to bring the Summit back to Diamond’s home turf of Charm City,” said Roger Fletcher, Diamond’s VP-Sales & Marketing. “We had a great event in Las Vegas last year and we hope to exceed that in terms of growth and retailer satisfaction with the 2015 Summit.”
Diamond also announced that it will partner with Baltimore Comic-Con, which will be held right after the Summit from September 25-27, to share marketing and strategic initiatives for the combined events. Baltimore Comic-Con’s Exhibit Hall will serve as the Summit’s Exhibit Hall during special “Retailer Only” hours.
“Our 15th annual show in 2014 was our biggest show to date,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “It’s only going to get bigger and better. Baltimore Comic-Con, coupled with Diamond’s Retailer Summit, should make for one of the best regional comic-con shows ever held.”
Now in its 13th year, Diamond’s Retailer Summit is the leading annual event for comic book specialty retailers to meet with publishers and vendors, and come together with fellow retailers to discuss the industry and their businesses. Top publishers such as Dark Horse Comics, DC Entertainment, IDW Publishing, Image Comics, and Marvel Comics come and share exciting new projects, while retailers get to network and learn about new business practices to help them succeed and thrive in today’s retailing environment.
Additional details and registration for the industry’s annual retailer event will be announced in early 2015. Publishers and vendors who would like to sponsor or exhibit at the Baltimore Comic-Con should contact Chris McClelland (email@example.com) now for additional information.

Ralph Garman & Kevin Smith appear at the Hollywood Improv on Friday, December 19, 2014 at 10:00 PM for live recording of their podcast HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON!
Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood’s other hand. They can’t help it. It’s their nature. It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.

Join The Comic Bug on Saturday, December 6th from 7:00 – 10:00 pm for a fun, dramatic evening at the Manhattan Beach location for a table read of Frank Darabont’s unfilmed classic INDIANA JONES and the CITY OF THE GODS!
When the script leaked a year or so after INDIANA JONES and the CRYSTAL SKULL was released, hard-core Indy fans were in an uproar that this, in many ways, superior, script wasn’t the one chosen by the powers that be when it came time to roll cameras on the new Indy film.
Witness as some of comic-dom’s greatest talents sit down to chew up the scenery on what might be the most unique event The Comic Bug has ever offered!
and introducing F.C. Brandt as INDIANA JONES!
The man in the hat is back!
