Shopping at Baltimore Comic-Con 2020 -- We Are Now LIVE!

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND - October 23, 2020 - Join us for the 1st annual Baltimore Comic-Con Live, a FREE ONLINE EVENT streaming RIGHT NOW and ALL WEEKEND October 23-25, 2020! Come check out our retailers, exhibitors, artists alley, programming, and the Ringo Awards live! You won't want to miss taking a virtual walk through our halls!

We have heard from many of you concerned that you would not be able to pick up those items you wanted to get at our show, or things that you didn't even know you wanted, but that you'd spot while walking the floor of the show. Thanks to our friends at Mainframe Comic Con, we have taken our directory of Exhibitors, Retailers, and Artists Alley and converted it to the Baltimore Comic-Con Live website!

From the front page, you can click on the Exhibitors link, and then navigate to the Retailers, Publishers, or Artists Alley sections of our show.

Our friends at Mainframe Comic Con did a spectacular job putting everything together for a virtual Baltimore Comic-Con experience. We hope you agree, and that you'll take advantage of the amazing experience they have put together for you!

"We're really grateful for the work that has gone into putting everything together," said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the Baltimore Comic-Con. "This has been a tough year for retailers, publishers, pros, and fans alike, but now we've got an opportunity to celebrate safely and enjoy each other's company, albeit without physically gathering. We will have the show running on the big screen at Cards, Comics & Collectibles in Reisterstown, MD all weekend long, and we hope you'll do the same at your home (or come and visit us, if you're in the area)!"
