Baltimore Comic-Con 2011. One word: Wow.

Simply the best con that Iíve attended - bar none!

Iíve got to meet Stan Lee, one of the most influential figures in the comic book world ever and my childhood hero, not once but TWICE. The first time was pretty surreal and we didnít talk much. But the second time after Stan Leeís autograph session, I got to meet him privately away from the public eye. (Thank you, Andy and Mike.) Not only did he had a great sense of humor, he was sharp and still passionate about comics. He was genuinely curious about my Marvel work and my art. To hear Stan Lee tell me that he loved my womenÖ Wow.

I asked if I could take a picture with him. He said, ďletís do this rightĒ, stood up and put his arm around my shoulder.

Wow. What a great guy.

On the sales end, this yearís Baltimore Comic-Con was one of most profitable conventions that Iíve attended all year. The attendance was up through the roof. The whole show was abuzz with excitement. Everyone Iíve talked to were truly happy about the show and comics in general. Everything ran smoothly, thanks to the well informed and friendly volunteers. My ďOne-Character-One-Action-One-Setting-In-One-HourĒ Drawing Challenge panel ran great despite a minor hiccup in the beginning. I hope that I didnít offend anyone with my salty language while I drew Power Girl riding a T-Rex in the Wild West.

Even though I literally got back from the show and Iím completely exhausted, I want to go back again.

I canít wait for next yearís Baltimore Comic-Con.

EXCELSIOR!

ó
Frank Cho

That settles it. I'm going next year.

SDCC I was bummed I didn't go cos of some of the events that happened outside the con. I'm bummed about this one since it sounds like I actually missed out on comic book goodness (some of small press friends had a good show, both fun and profit).

Wizard World NE went poof (without telling anyone they invited) so I'm left without a nearby con for the rest of the year. I'm getting con-antsy.

Stan was a really sweet guy, and very tall. Wink

I hope Stan Lee comes back to Baltimore Comic-Con. He was fantastic with fans and professionals alike. A very positive force.

The con was pretty awesome and PACKED!  Never saw so many people!  I wonder what the attendance record was.  It sure beat out last years by a mile!  
Who won the drawing Frank?  I guess I didn't since you didn't call me...or did you forget to put my tickets in the drawing?
