Baltimore Comic Con 2011
Comic Con in Charm City
This is our first time at Baltimore Comic Con. We saw an ad on TV and decided to go since it is close to Chimera Magazine headquarters. After my recent experience in San Diego, I was expecting long lines and the like.
Arrival 10:10am. A little late. There is a big line outside the convention center and some confusion about yellow wristbands. We find out we exchange our pre-printed passes for these wristbands and thus enter the show. In addition, there is a line, not very long, for those who decided to get badges at the show. So far, it looks good.
We now have the souvenir program, but we are heading in straight to the dealer's room. There are plenty of folks in costume and lots of discounted comics.
Costume Photos - Star Wars
All kinds of evil empire troopers have gotten their hands on this poor guy. There is even a TIE-Fighter guy in there.
Kristal with the forces of the Empire. Is she deceiving, on a deep cover mission, or has she switched sides? Only time will tell.
The dark lord of the Sith watches from on high, his power unchallenged.
Costume Photos - Superheroes and Superheroines
A band of characters from Batman, both heroes and villains lined up for this shot. The little Two Face was awesome.
Nightwing and Psylocke, and unlikely pairing, both looking grim.
Storm (X-men) and Silk Spectre (Watchmen). While they are from different companies and groups, they look very good together.
Like the X-men's Phoenix, I feel a rebirth for my enthusiasm for comic conventions. I am enjoying this show immensely.
While they are the top of their fields, it is very unlikely we will see the pairing of Nick Fury and Galactus any time soon.
