Kids Love Comics at Baltimore Comic-Con


One of the big draws of going to a convention is the atmosphere. Being around other like-minded individuals always merits a good time and it's even more fun when kids can see their favorite characters roaming the halls. Baltimore Comic-Con is big on making kids feel welcome and this year is no different. In addition to kids under 10 getting in free, the Kids Love Comics Pavilion will be even bigger this year.

Families will enjoy three rows of kids and young adult comic creators. Representing all facets of publishing, the writers, artists, and award-winning creators have been published by Marvel, DC, Image, Dark Horse, Scholastic Graphix, Archie, First Second, and many other top publishers. With over 30 different creators showcasing their work, there will be something for every member of your family.

"What an enormous grouping of kid-friendly talent," said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. "This is undoubtedly the best Kids Love Comics Pavilion yet. Families will have a great time meeting these creators, buying their works, and participating in the KLC activities planned for the weekend!"

Here is the complete list of the creators appearing at the 2015 Baltimore Comic-Con Kids Love Comics Pavilion:
