Baltimore Comic Con – September 5-7, 2014

bcc-2013-logo

Here’s the thing about Baltimore Comic Con; even when it’s not perfect, it’s one of the best conventions out there.

This year the convention expanded from a two day to a three day event, and while it showed a few growing pains, the best parts of the weekend were still very present. And it says a lot about Baltimore Comic Con that, despite getting completely turned around due to lack of aisle number signs, and having a major costume screw up, and waiting in the wrong line at one point, I still consider it to be one of my favourite weekends of the year.

I don’t know how much I can say that I haven’t said after previous years. If I haven’t convinced you to go yet, I doubt I ever will. But you’ll have no idea what you’re missing out on.

A few highlights:

Getting the opportunity to meet Gail Simone.

Talking Superman with Walter and Louise Simonson.

Catching up with friends I only see once a year.

Meeting and getting reacquainted with guests of a future convention I’ll be working.

Wearing a costume from a still very new comic, and having people recognise it.

Forgetting a major piece of a costume, and somehow coming out better for it.

Finally snagging a picture with Mark Waid, and getting to rave about Daredevil to him.

Having more than a moment to speak with Brian Stelfreeze.

The brilliant costumes.

The art! (I might have a bit of an art addiction problem…)

And as I say every year, is it time for next year yet?
