I went to the Baltimore Comic-Con last weekend and had a great time time. I arrived late Thursday and had dinner before turning in. Friday, I spent the day at Geppi’s Entertainment Museum, which will get a separate post soon.

Saturday was the first day of the convention. Instead of starting off with the golden age and silver age comics and all the comic dealer booths, I headed straight for the artists area. In 2 days, I got more than 20 different sketches. Unfortunately, I missed Jim Lee, but I got just about everyone else I wanted to see.

The line for Tim Sale was huge. I didn’t have anything for him to sign, but he did this quick sketch of Batman for me. I gave a generous donation to the HERO Initiative, for which he kept a donation jar on his table.

The line for Herb Trimpe, the best Hulk artist of all time, wasn’t as physically long. But, Herb takes care when making his sketches. So, I had to wait quite a while for this one.

Some of my other sketches included another Batman from Brian Stelfreeze and Matt Wagner. A Spider-Man and Green Goblin from Bob McLeod. Wolverine from Ron Garney. Nightcrawler from Brandon Peterson and many more.

Sunday, I bought a few comics. The highlight was some awesome Will Eisner Spirit sections which I purchased from Basement Comics and Stephen Ritter.

I went to a CGC Forum dinner for two nights and skipped lunch for 2 days. Overall, a great time.
