Baltimore Comic-Con 2017
September 22-24, 2017
Baltimore Convention Center
The Baltimore Comic-Con (comic convention) is a comic book-oriented fan convention held in the fall of every year since its inception in 2000. Founded by Marc Nathan, owner of Cards, Comics, and Collectibles of Reistertown, MD, the show was originally a one-day show held at the Sheraton Hotel in the Baltimore suburb of Towson. In 2002, after outgrowing its previous venue, the show moved to the Baltimore Convention Center in downtown Baltimore, across from Camden Yards and down the street from Geppi's Entertainment Museum, and was extended to a two-day show. In 2014, the show expanded to a three-day event.
Each year, the show features marquee-name comic book creators past and present, media stars, publishers, charitable organizations, and vendor booths offering genre-related items including comic book back-issues, limited edition collectible items such as Toon Tumblers and clothing, videos/DVDs, etc. Panel discussions throughout the day feature industry names presenting information on current and upcoming industry events, past hallmarks in comic book history, and information on the industry and how to be a part of it.
As of 2006, the Baltimore Comic-Con has served as host to the annual Harvey Awards, named for the late comics genius Harvey Kurtzman and developed to honor comic book industry professionals and companies singled out by their peers.
