000000000000000-Futurians

Planet Comics is proud to have Paty Cockrum scheduled to appear at Planet Comics on Wednesday August 10th from 2-6pm to sign copies of FUTURIANS

Dave Cockrum created and designed some of the Bronze Age’s greatest costumed heroes. Following his meteoric rise to stardom on DC’s Legion of Superheroes, Dave moved to Marvel and unveiled his characters Nightcrawler, Colossus, Storm, Thunderbird, Mystique, Ms. Marvel and the Black Cat. Along with creative partners Len Wein and Chris Claremont, he breathed life into Wolverine and the X-Men, designed Phoenix, and created the Starjammers. But none of his creations were more colorful or more explosive than his FUTURIANS (Marvel Graphic Novel #9).

The FUTURIANS remained with Dave after he left Marvel and now belong to his widow Paty who has teamed with Aardwolf Publishing to release Dave’s final script and art. And Dave’s professional friends and admirers have joined in to celebrate and help launch this exciting project.

Filed under Convention News, Cosplay, Maryland

BaltimoreconPress Release:

The Baltimore Comic-Con will be held on September 2-4, 2016 at the Inner Harbor’s Baltimore Convention Center.

Our first priority at Baltimore Comic-Con will always be the safety and welfare of all our fans, guests, vendors, and the Baltimore community. Our amended policy is intended to address sharp-edged blades and realistic, functioning firearms. With that in mind, our AMENDED Weapons Policy follows.

The following list is not meant to be all-inclusive and the Baltimore Comic-Con reserves the right to prohibit additional items not listed in this policy. Prohibited items include, but are not limited to:

  1. Functional firearms of any kind (including air soft guns, BB guns, cap guns, paintball guns, and pellet guns)
  2. Replica firearms (including reproductions, or toy guns that can be confused for actual firearms by law enforcement)
  3. Sharp-edged (non-dull) bladed weapons (including axes, daggers, hatchets, knives and swords, sword canes, and switch blades)
  4. Explosives of any type (including black powder, firecrackers, and fireworks)
  5. Chemical weapons (including mace and pepper spray)

If you purchase a sharp-bladed weapon (not blunt or rounded) from a Vendor at the convention, please be careful and consider keeping it in its original packaging while you’re on the show floor.

We completely appreciate the time and effort that so many of our fans and guests put into their costumes and convention attire. Whether dressing for our annual costume contest, cosplay, or simply showing your fandom, we understand that weaponry is often part of the overall presentation. We sincerely hope everyone understands these extra measures that have been designed to preserve a safe and enjoyable environment for all, and we strongly encourage everyone to continue wearing the costumes on which they have spent so much time and effort.

Thank you in advance for working with us to ensure a safe and fun time is experienced by everyone at the Baltimore Comic-Con.
