The Baltimore Comic Con show is considered to be the younger brother of San Diego Comic Convention. It was founded on in 2000 by Marc Nathan, the owner of Cards, Comics, and Collectibles of Reistertown, MD. The first Comic Con lasted only one day and was held at the Sheraton Hotel in the Baltimore. This has now become a 2-day affair and the venue shifted to the Baltimore Convention Center in downtown Baltimore.
Annually various comic publishers, writers, charitable organizations and companies producing genre-related items including comic book back-issues, limited edition collectible items such as Toon Tumblers and clothing, videos/DVDs, etc gather at Baltimore. More than 100 contestants for best costumes expressed their love to comics and individuality. These pictures are from 2010 convention.
