  • Baltimore Comic Con October 10th & 11th, 2009: Who's going?

    It'll be here before we know it... October 10th & 11th will be the annual Baltimore Comic-Con, which has quickly become one of the biggest and best cons on the East Coast, drawing high profile talent in recent years such as Brian Michael Bendis, Michael Avon Oeming, Geoff Johns, Jim Lee, Chris Claremont and many, many more!

    I live mere minutes outside of Baltimore, so I'll be there! And I know GLJIMT is planning to be there, as well!

    So, the question now is: HOW ABOUT YOU?

    WILL YOU BE THERE, POOZER?!?

    If so, SOUND OFF!

    I will be there on Saturday, I think I will be taking Friday off and driving down then hitting the Con early, but will have to leave on Sunday so not sure if I will be at the Con on Sunday since one of the conditions of going is finding my wife something she will enjoy in the area......... SoOOOOOOO Jack what is there to do in Baltimore beside watch the Ravens beat the tar out of the Browns?

    Also If there are alot of GLCMBers going I would like to arrange a lunch or possibly a "hospitality room" at the Hotel. Thoughts?

      Well, Jim, when you're at the Baltimore Convention Center, you're in the general area known as the Inner Harbor. There's all kinds of stuff to do there. You have the Hard Rock Cafe there, and all kinds of clubs/concert venues. Depending who's in town that weekend, you might be lucky enough to catch a good concert in that general area.

      Also you won't be that far from the Baltimore Aquarium, if that would interest you or your wife.

            Me and the wife will be there, as we have been since we moved down to MD/VA years ago . I live in VA now, so we make it a weekend and drive up Friday night, go out, then hit the Con on both Saturday and Sunday.

                Sweet!

                Since you live so close by, we need to start a DC area GL Fan Club!

                I imagine that come 2011, there'd be a lot of people looking for such a club after they see THE MOVIE!

                Works for me!

                Since I live only 20-30 minutes from Baltimore, I'll be staying at home... no need to spend money on the hotel when I live nearby.
                Also here is the guest list.... I don't see Johns on it
                I didn't specifically say Johns would be there this year, I was just mentioning some of the big names that have been there in RECENT years.

                Johns was there LAST year... not that I got to see him. And I also didn't get to see Brian Michael Bendis, either... the line at his booth was too long. But I DID get to meet Michael Avon Oeming, talked with him, and got him to sign my First Editions of the first 2 volumes of Powers!

                This year, I noticed that Pat Broderick is going to be there... I met him years ago, at the first comic con I ever went to! I have my copy of Green Lantern (Vol. 3) # 1 signed by him! He was my favorite GL artist at the time, so that was really awesome!

                            actually I will be making a new one, I should have it done some time this week, the black writing on the dark green just did not work, also the size I bought shrunk, I will be using the same site if you want one I suggest that you order one size up to avoid shrinkage.

                              Hmmm.... so what are you doing to solve the problem with the black text on the dark green background?

                              I have mine, washed it once, hung it in the closet, and haven't worn it, because nobody else was at the Baltimore Comic-Con last year. I can tell you that only the black used for the Member Name and "Recruited" date is hard to make out... all of the green text showed up really well on the dark green shirt.

                              And since I'll be wearing it to the con, you can tell me how it looks. Once they start allowing online pre-registration, I'll be ordering my pass for the con, so if need be, I'll put my GLC MB name on my badge/pass/whatever.
