Baltimore Comic Con - "Day Three"

For most of us, there really was no “Day Three” at Baltimore, but most of the industry folks did stay one more day. It was for the big Diamond retailers meeting. This was the reason most of the announcements and news that usually flows from a major comic con did not do so during the weekend.

It all came out the next day, Monday. Comics being part of the entertainment business, we usually only think of it in the entertainment sense – but in reality, it is a business. As much as we don’t want to think this, this is about money. And Monday was not only for the news, it was for the money.

In my opinion, this was a good thing for the Baltimore Comic Con. It was a friendlier con and more people-oriented. Sure, it would have been nice to hear all about Siege and the Avengers returning to greatness and Dark Reign being over. And yes, it would have been cool to hear about DC bringing dead titles back to life as part of Blackest Night as well – but really, then this would have been like any other convention. Baltimore was better this way.
