Media Release — BALTIMORE, MD (May. 26, 2009) — The Baltimore Comic-Con is proud to announce that top creators of today’s Marvel Universe will find themselves in Baltimore this October 10th and 11th as guests of the Baltimore Comic-Con. Jason Aaron (Wolverine), Brian Michael Bendis (Avengers), Frank Cho (Ultimates 4), David Finch (Ultimatum), Matt Fraction (Uncanny X-Men), and Barry Kitson (Amazing Spider-Man) will all convene to help celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Baltimore Comic-Con.
“This modern day Marvel bullpen, the writers and artists of today’s Marvel Comics, will really help to make this year a great show. This will be the first time that Jason Aaron and Matt Fraction have joined us, and a great second year for Brian Michael Bendis. Brian made a special effort to speak with all of his fans last year, and was a guest that many of our fans requested come back,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “We missed David Finch in 2008 due to the birth of his lovely daughter, and it is great to have him back. And of course, we are thrilled to welcome perennial fan favorites Frank Cho and Barry Kitson back to the halls of the Baltimore Convention Center.”
As we continue to get ready for the show on October 10-11, 2009, we would also like to announce the Baltimore Comic-Con’s 2010 dates: August 27-28, 2010. “We have spent 10 years putting on great comic book-centric shows, and I am proud to start on a second great decade. The fans come to our shows to meet and greet with their favorite artists and writers, and we plan to continue that tradition well into the future,” remarked Nathan. “While it may be early for some, we want our partners, guests, exhibitors, and fans to know our plans so that they join us in 2010.”
