Baltimore Comic-Con 2013 attractions [Pictures]
At the Baltimore Comic-Con, it's all about the comics. In the years since the convention was first held at a Towson hotel in 2000, the annual gathering has become a favorite of fans and comics professionals. Although plenty of comic conventions are bigger, few are more single-mindedly devoted to the medium after which they are named.
"The Baltimore Comic-Con is one of the last pure comic book conventions in the country," says Maryland artist Frank Cho, whose work for Marvel has included drawing Spider-Man, the Avengers and Shanna the She-Devil. "In the past 15 years on the convention circuit, much of the focus has shifted from comics to movies and TV and video games. But the Baltimore Comic-Con is still only about comics, which is refreshing and great."
Here are eight of the coolest ways to get the most for your comic-book buck this weekend. The Baltimore Comic-Con runs 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 7 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 8 at the Baltimore Convention Center, 1 W. Pratt St.
