Has your comic store given up on selling back issues? They only carry a few issues here or there? Don’t fret. Back issues do have a home in NYC – in Brooklyn! 3/4 million sorted books, 200,000+ for $1 each. Is your comic store not interested in buying your collection, because they don’t sell back issues? Bring ’em to Brooklyn!

The hot and hip outer borough, Brooklyn is the primordial home of Pop Culture: In 1999, Victoria (Posh Spice) and soccer star David Beckham named their first child “Brooklyn”. Over 50 years earlier, Jack (King) Kirby, co-creator of Captain America, the Fantastic Four, the X Men, and the entire medium-revolutionizing Marvel Comics Universe – knighted the American member of the Nazi-fighting Boy Commandos “Brooklyn”. Bring us your Neat Stuff to sell and star in your own “Brooklyn Antiques Roadshow”!

Baltimore Comic-Con Says Thanks

Comments Off on Baltimore Comic-Con Says Thanks

Thanks for a Great 10th Anniversary from the Baltimore Comic-Con!

Baltimore, Maryland – November 16, 2009 – The 2009 Baltimore Comic-Con would like to take a moment to thank all of our exhibitors, guests, and staff for contributing to what was a spectacular celebration of our 10th anniversary. As anyone attending can attest, our 10th annual show had both record size and record attendance, and we’ve been gratified to see all of the positive write-ups from press, pros, and the public at large.

“When we set out to plan the biggest Baltimore Comic-Con ever, I knew it would take the help of all of our partners – and they delivered,” said show promoter Marc Nathan. “For our guests, publishers, retailers, exhibitors, volunteers, and especially to our great fans who continue to come out for our comic book show each year – I want to say ‘Thank you!’ Also, I owe a special thanks to Neal Adams, Roger Ash, Joe Keatinge, Joe Kubert, and George Perez for their contributions to the show. We could not have done it without all of them. I look forward to planning on our 11th show in 2010.”

Our guest charities, the Hero Initiative, Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF), and Humane Society all raised a great deal of money for their worthy causes.

“We feel as if we cannot say ‘thank you’ enough…to the person who very generously donated the comic books to be sold on our behalf,” said Tracy Santos, Community Relations Manager for the Baltimore Humane Society. “Our thanks also go out to the many artists who came to our booth to draw for donations…Mike Wieringo is the reason Baltimore Humane Society walked away from Comic-Con with $3,300. The love and admiration you all have for him is something that shows each time you speak of him.”

The Hero Initiative, which announced at this year’s Harvey Award Ceremony and Banquet that it had raised over $100,000 through the Baltimore Comic-Con’s 10 year history, had another great year. “Through the incredible efforts of fan favorite George Perez and Tim Sale, the charity was able to once again raise nearly $10,000,” said Kevin Brogan, East Coast Hero Initiative Representative. “Baltimore Comic-Con has always been a rewarding experience both monetarily and through the in-kind efforts and good grace of Baltimore’s remarkable guest artists.”

“The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is grateful to Marc Nathan and his outstanding team who put on the Baltimore Comic-Con. We were glad to meet hundreds of enthusiastic supporters over the weekend, who were all having a great time celebrating comic books and their creators at the show. The Baltimore Comic-Con, year after year, is one of the most vibrant and vital celebrations of the comic book medium in the United States and we’re glad to be a part of it,” said Charles Brownstein, Executive Director of CBLDF, who raised over $2,600 during the weekend.

This year’s show highlights included Scott Kurtz hosting a very successful (and very funny) Harvey Awards Banquet and Ceremony, featuring a jam-packed grab-bag for dinner attendees and Neal Adams being awarded the HERO Initiative Humanitarian Award; our first annual Baltimore Comic-Con Art Auction which sold pieces by artists such as David Petersen, Sean Chen, Joe Kubert, and Frank Cho; and our first annual Baltimore Comic-Con Costume Contest, which brought out great numbers of costumed attendees of all ages, and awarded the $1,000 grand prize for Best Overall, Top Winner to Paul Day of Bel Air, MD who sported a fantastic Iron Man costume!

In addition to Paul, here are the attendees that won category awards and their character costumes:

Best Existing Super Hero, Adult, Male – Paul Day, Iron Man
Best Original Super Hero, Adult, Male – James Hennigan, Hate Priest
Best (Potpourri), Adult, Male – Charles Singer, Predator

Golden Surprise Addition to Virginia Comic-Con Line-up!

Richmond– Virginia IS for lovers…of G.I. Joe and Michael Golden artwork that is– as Golden signs on as a surprise last-minute guest for next weekend’s Virginia Comic-Con, slated for November 21-22, 2009!

Michael Golden, a fan favorite for his work on “Micronauts,” “G.I.Joe,” Batman, Dr. Strange, X-Men, Avengers, and “The ‘Nam,” among many other projects, has just been added to the line-up just this week, and is a natural for the event’s G.I. Joe theme, considering his groundbreaking work on that series.

Exiles by Michael Golden

Exiles by Michael Golden

This will also mark the artist’s first appearance in Virginia, in fact. And, to celebrate the fact, Golden will have some special prints and books for the occasion.

During his career, Golden has been an editor at DC Comics as well as senior art director at Marvel Comics, and has worked on numerous movie production projects, including some currently in development.

His art has been the focus of gallery shows in places as diverse as New York, Gijon, Barcelona, Antwerp and Brussels, and his class on storytelling has been conducted in countries including Spain, Brussels, Canada, the United States and China. Golden’s recent work can be seen on the covers of “Heroes for Hire,” “Exiles,” “Demon’s Regret,” “Uncanny X-Men,” and Spiderman, among many others. Vanguard Production’s recently released top-selling art retrospective “Excess: The Art of Michael Golden,” written by Renee Witterstaetter, has sold out and has gone into a second printing. This year will also see the release of Golden’s new sketchbook, “MORE Heroes and Villains,” from Eva Ink Publishing-a perfect match for last year’s “Heroes and Villains” sketchbook. (Soon to followed by the sketchbooks, “Dangerous Curves,” and “Bad Dog.” )

Joining Michael in Virginia will be Larry Hama (G.I. Joe), Alex Saviuk (Spiderman), Chris Claremont (X-Men), Bill Tucci (Sgt. Rock), Chuck Dixon (Birds of Prey), Kelly Yates (Doctor Who), Jim Califiore (Exiles), John Gallagher (Buzzboy), Steve Conley (Astounding Space Thrills), Mike McKone (Fantastic Four), Eric Wolfe-Hanson (G.I. Joe), Rick Ketchum (Runaways), James Kuhoric (Army of Darkness), our own J.C. Vaughn (24), Mike McKone (Amazing Spider-Man), Reilly Brown (Cable), Dan Parent (Archie), Randy Green (Witchbalde), Andy Smith (Red Sonja), Steve Bird (Blue Beetle), Rick Spears (Teenagers from Mars), Renee Witterstaetter (writer for numerous books from Vanguard Productions, Spartan X), James Callahan (Strange Detective Tales), Louis Small, Jr. (Vampirella), Brian Shearer (Gravyboy), Kevin Sharpe (G.I. Joe), Budd Root (Cavewoman), and Zuda Comics winner Adam Lucas (Goldilock).

Admission is $10 for adults to the November 21-22, 2009 show at the Crowne Plaza West, 6532 W Broad Street in Richmond, VA, but it will be free to anyone in full costume, children, folks with student ID and people with military ID. It will also be free to members of the press.
