Frank Miller Returns to Baltimore Comic-Con!

Frank MillerFrank Miller Returns to Baltimore Comic-Con in 2018

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – May 15, 2018 – You won’t want to miss the 2018 Baltimore Comic-Con, taking place September 28-30 at the Inner Harbor’s Baltimore Convention Center. The Baltimore Comic-Con is elated to announce the return of Frank Miller on Friday and Saturday at the show.

Frank Miller is a comic book writer and artist, a screenwriter, a film director, and a movie producer. Originally from just down the street in Olney, MD, Frank was raised in Montpelier, VT, and eventually found his way to New York City and the comic book industry in the late 1970s. Finding work in Gold Key Comics initially, he went on to work with DC and Marvel.

At the latter, after recurring fill-in and cover artist gigs, he took over art and, eventually, writing duties on Daredevil. He co-plotted the Wolverine limited series with Chris Claremont, and would continue working on titles (his own and those of the companies for which he worked) including

Ronin, Daredevil: Born Again, Elektra Lives Again, The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City, and 300. In addition to his comic book work, Miller wrote the scripts for Robocop 2 and 3, directed the film version of The Spirit, shared directing duties with Robert Rodriguez on the Palme d’Or-nominated Sin City and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and produced the film 300. Eagle-eyed viewers can spot him in cameo roles in Robocop 2, Daredevil, Sin City, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and The Spirit. Miller is known for creating Elektra for Marvel Comics’ Daredevil series, and a female version of the Robin character, Carrie Kelley, for DC Comics.

Miller will be appearing on Saturday and Sunday, and a limited number of tickets are available for fan interaction during his appearance. To purchase tickets to the Baltimore Comic-Con and the Frank Miller events specifically, please see our tickets webpage.

“What a thrill for us (and his fans) to have Frank back again this year!” said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the Baltimore Comic-Con. “We really enjoyed having him to the show last year, and Frank had a good time as well, so we’re pleased to be able to bring him back to Baltimore.”

SF – SF Sketchfest Salute to Better Things

SF Sketchfest is proud to salute Pamela Adlon and her amazing FX show “Better Things” with an in-person conversation & clips with Adlon and cast members Diedrich Bader (Rich), Greg Cromer (Jeff), Lucy Davis (Macy), and Rebecca Metz (Tressa), moderated by Kevin Pollak (who also plays her brother Marion on the show), at the Marines Memorial Theatre on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 4:00 PM.

Better Things centers on Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon), a single, working actor with no filter raising her three daughters, Max (Mikey Madison), Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Duke (Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles. She’s mom, dad, referee and the cops. Sam also watches out for her mother, Phil (Celia Imrie), an English expatriate who lives across the street. Sam is flawed and fierce with her love for her daughters, and her own mother as well, sometimes heaping the love on when she feels guilty. Sam’s just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two and also — just maybe — squeeze in some private time once in awhile.

BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT: MASTER RACE captures a world after the toppling of Lex Luthor and the apparent death of Batman himself. Who is left to save Gotham City and the rest of the world against the Master Race?

In celebration of Harley Quinn’s 25th Anniversary, this year the clown princess of crime is taking over DC’s annual Batman Day celebration. Co-created by acclaimed producers Paul Dini (DARK NIGHT: A TRUE BATMAN STORY) and Bruce Timm (Batman Beyond), Harley Quinn first appeared on the hit Batman: The Animated Series in a September 1992 episode, “The Joker’s Favor.” Following her TV debut, Harley Quinn spawned the now popular comic series and is one of the fastest growing characters in DC history.

A purchase of BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT: MASTER RACE is required to attend the signing and fans may bring two additional items from home for the team to sign. Wristbands for the signing will be given out on a first come, first serve basis, starting at 9 a.m. on September 23.
