HARVEY Awards move to Baltimore Comic-Con

I just read THIS on Diamond International Gallery's SCOOP. The Harvey Awards are moving to the Baltimore Comic-Con next year! Pretty cool. The Baltimore Comic-Con is my favorite comic book convention... loads of old comic books, easy-to-get-to location in a GREAT city, and TONS of comic-industry celebrities! Click on the link to see just some of the guests already scheduled for next year. I'm telling you, don't miss the Baltimore Comic-Con... plan now for September!

I missed it this year, but I will be there next year. You are right Bill, this is the best con around.

This was my FIRST comic-con so I have nothing to compare to but I had a really good time. I got to meet Dick Ayers and Frank Cho and got autographs of both for my brother in Ohio. He's a big Dick Ayers fan and I managed to get the last copy of Part 2 of his autobio there. I hunted down Izzy Cruz who is doing the artwork for a new comic coming out in January called Atomic Mike. Check out his blog at http://atomikmike.blogspot.com/. The cover for Atomic Mike is at the bottom of the page so be sure to scroll down. He said to tell my brother he's a "well fed Puerto Rican." I heard about him on WGAL. I already got his autograph too! You never know when someone will make it big. Hope you like it. Order one for me Bill? I don't know if it was in Previews yet. I'm anxious for next year's comic-con. Bring it on!

I had a great time at the Baltimore Comicon this year, though I was too out of touch with comics to really approach any of the artists that were set up. There were plenty of bargain books to be had (one place had 7 for a $1 comics!), and I picked up a complete set of Prez, too.

My one pervy regret is not buying that poster of Supergirl flying around with her skirt up. Woo!

I was at 2 Harvey Awards dinners when they were held at Pittsburgh and had a great time at each. The shows were great fun but the best thing of all was that I lucked out each year with table placement.

The first year, my wife and I were seated next to Green Lantern's creator Martin Nodell and his wife. The second year we were seated next to Bendis and Oeming from Powers. They were cracking us up.

It was so much fun. I would recommend these awards to anyone with an interest in the industry.

jenjon - I will check into that Atomic Mike comic... remind me when you're in the store.

Reading all your posts reminds me of what I REALLY like about the Baltimore Comic-Con... the absolute focus on COMIC BOOKS, with TONS of artists/writers rubbing elbows with the fans... I mean, we've had Roy Thomas, Bob Overstreet, and Mark Waid rummaging through our boxes, and just this past year were set up across from John Romita, Sr! What a great time. It also helps that the show organizer, Marc Nathan is a heck of a guy!

Oh, and eating at Bertha's Mussels in Fell's Point and picking up some Pinoili and Amaretti cookies at Vaccaro's in Little Italy is just icing on the cake...

I never been to the Baltimore comic-con but I have been to WizardWorld East in Philly this year and it was a blast! My friends and I left there with tons of free stuff and convention exclusives. It was awsome seeing all the creators and publisher booths and how nice they were to their fans. The only complaint I had was I didn't have enough money for all the cool stuff that was there. So this year I'm thinking of putting aside money for both conventions so I can attend both and be able to afford everything.

Thanks Bill. I'll remind you about Atomic Mike for sure. If you want a pic of Izzy holding the signed print out I have one here on the PC. I also have a mini movie of Dick Ayers drawing a sketch and a picture of Frank Cho.
