BALTIMORE COMICON 2008 a huge success!
That was the biggest and best Baltimore Comicon EVER, bar none! On Saturday, the line to get in stretched outside to the front area until at least 2:00... and Sunday was crazy busy too. It's funny, that with all those people milling around, the floor never seemed to be jammed, just pretty crowded due to the size of the floorspace at the Baltimore Convention Center. Joe, Josh and I rarely had time to leave the booth to use the restroom, let alone go visit all the artists and writers in attendance. I never did get to see METAMORPHO artist Ramona Fradon... every time I went looking for her she wasn't there. Oh well, I did get to meet and chat with Jeff Kinney, author/artist of DIARY OF A WIMPY KID, and pick up the third book in the series, which was comped to me by Abrams rep Eric! Thanks, man! Oh and special thanks go out to my wife Karen who supplied us with sandwiches, coffee and tasty snacks! You're a life saver! It was fun to see all of you guys down in Baltimore amidst millions of dollars worth of comic books... we hope you all had as much fun as we did!
Were you there? What did you see and do? Tell us in the comments section!
(Oh, and stay tuned for more fun stuff coming up near the end of this month, including our fabled Halloween Sale!)
