I made a map of the important things. Considering insisting I become a graphic designer for Baltimore Comic Con. I'll be in Artist Alley table A322 this weekend at Baltimore Comic Con! It's Fri Sept 25 - Sun Sept 27 at the Baltimore Convention Center
FRI hours: 1p-7p. SAT hours: 10a-7p. SUN hours: 10a-5p.
One West Pratt Street
Baltimore, Maryland 21201
(PRATT & HOWARD STREET ENTRANCE)
THIS YEAR WE ARE LOCATED ONE BLOCK WEST ON THE OTHER END OF THE CONVENTION CENTER!
Here are some cool panels going on that I wish I could go to. If you go to these, please stop by my booth and tell me how awesome they were! (They should really put these rooms on the map, but it's not as huge as NYCC, so I think it shouldn't be too hard.)
Friday, Room 347-348. 2:30-3:30 – Living in Harmony: Digital and Print
The world of digital comics created quite a stir in the world of print comics. However, after a few years of co-existing, they are both still around and seem to be helping each other to become a strong industry. Join this panel to check in and see how digital and print are doing with Mark Waid, Amy Chu, Katie Cook, Christy Blanch, and James Tynion IV.
Saturday, Room 345-346. 12:15-1:15 – It’s an Ad, Ad, Ad World — Advertising in Comics
From SeaMonkeys to “The Insult that Made a Man Out of Mac” to TNT’s The Last Ship, ads have been an integral part of the comic reading experience. But are they a speed bump in the entertainment process or an integral part of comics and Pop Culture? Moderator Ed Catto (Bonfire Agency, Captain Action) takes a brief backwards glance at nostalgic comic ads, and then focuses on the future of comic advertising with an all-star panel of business professionals.
Saturday, Room 347-348. 12:15-1:15 – Superheroes Under a Microscope
AtomicUniverse.org’s very own Christopher Preece, who is also a science consultant for comic creators, and creators Mark Waid and Ramona Fradon discuss science in comics. Superheroes defy scientific laws all the time but how close are superheroes to reality? Just how fast can the Flash go? How can Ant-Man get so tiny?
Sunday, Room 339-342. 1:30-2:30 – The Fifth Beatle: Exclusive Film Presentation!
The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story was the most celebrated graphic novel of 2014, and is now becoming a feature film with the blessing of The Beatles and unprecedented access to their music. Join award-winning graphic novel and screenplay writer Vivek J. Tiwary as he presents never-before-seen scenes from the screenplay and discusses how the film will differ from the book. Moderated by Patrick Reed (ComicsAlliance, Depth Of Field).
I worked as Kyle Baker's coloring assistant for our segment in The Fifth Beatle, and never got paid or even credited. And now they're making a movie out of it. Just saying. In fact, I'll post a page of it here. Kyle usually did some special effects to the pages after I did the flats. I think he may have toned down the bright colors for the final version. This is part of a 10 page dream sequence. From the script: "We now enter an old-school comic-book sequence modeled loosely after / in homage to The Beatles’ animated cartoons from the late 1960’s." The story segment takes place when the Beatles went to the Philippines. That's Imelda Marcos in the suitcase - she really liked shoes.
