Stan Lee Makes His Third Appearance at Baltimore Comic-Con 2013

**UPDATE: UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO UNAVOIDABLE CIRCUMSTANCES, STAN LEE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MAKE IT TO THE SHOW THIS YEAR. We have closed sales of the Stan Lee tickets and will be in touch in the coming weeks with refund options for existing buyers of Stan Lee tickets.**

Press Release:stan_lee

The Baltimore Comic-Con is honored to announce that Stan “The Man” Lee will return to Baltimore for the third year in a row at this year’s convention. The 14th Annual show will be taking place at the Baltimore Convention Center the weekend of September 7-8, 2012.

For this year’s show, Lee will be making appearances both days, signing autographs and posing for photographs with fans in attendance of the show.

He is known the world over as the architect of the Marvel Universe and the Father of Modern Comics. Along with Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, Lee co-created some of the most iconic characters of the Silver Age, including the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, the Avengers, the X-Men, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Daredevil, Iron Man, and Doctor Strange.

Lee began his career in comics in 1939 at the age of 16, working for Martin Goodman at Timely Comics. He made his writing debut in 1941 with a text filler story in Captain America Comics #3 and wrote his first back-up story for the title two issues later. Lee continued to write for the publisher and, at the age of 19, was installed as interim editor. With a head for business and an eye for comics, Lee graduated to become editor-in-chief and art director of the comics division.

Throughout his illustrious career, which has spanned more than 70 years, Lee has been a writer, editor, publisher, President, and Chairman at Marvel Comics. He’s made cameo appearances in 17 films based on his creations-including Iron Man 3, Marvel Studios’ follow-up to The Avengers.

“Having Stan back for a third year is just incredible for both the fans and the show as a whole,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “With him appearing both days again this year, we’re setting the stage for our biggest and best year yet!”

Details regarding ticket pricing for signings and VIP packages will be released over the next few weeks. To receive the latest information about Stan Lee and all of the Baltimore Comic-Con news, sign up for our mailing list at baltimorecomiccom.com!

Stan Lee joins our previously announced guests, including: Brian Bolland (Dial H); Mark Buckingham (Fables); Jimmy Cheung (Avengers vs. X-Men); Frank Cho (Savage Wolverine); Amanda Conner (Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre); J.M. DeMatteis (Phantom Stranger); David Finch (Justice League of America); Dave Gibbons (The Secret Service); Keith Giffen (Masters of the Universe); Adam Hughes (Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan); Barry Kitson (Empire); Roger Langridge (Popeye); Paul Levitz (World’s Finest); Kevin Maguire (World’s Finest); Mike Mignola (Hellboy In Hell); Jimmy Palmiotti (Batwing); George Perez (World’s Finest); David Petersen (Mouse Guard); Joe Prado (Earth 2); Ivan Reis (Aquaman); Chris Samnee (Daredevil); Louise Simonson (X-Factor); Walt Simonson (The Mighty Thor); Allison Sohn (sketch card artist); Mark Waid (Indestructible Hulk); and Bill Willingham (Fables).

In the coming weeks, look for more announcements from the Baltimore Comic-Con. We are looking forward to highlighting our guests, the Harvey Awards, industry exclusives, and programming. The latest developments can always be found on our website, Twitter, and Facebook pages.

This year’s Baltimore Comic-Con will be held September 7-8, 2013. Convention hours are Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday 10 AM to 5 PM. The ceremony and banquet for the Harvey Awards will be held Saturday night, September 7th.
