BCR at BCC: Day Two at Baltimore Comic Con
It was another great day today (September 9) at the Baltimore Comic-Con.
The highlights for me were the informative panels, followed by what bits and pieces I caught of the Costume Competition (now a three-hour event). I scored some more bargain reading and picked up an autograph from Jeff Lemire in my copy of THE UNDERWATER WELDER. Here is a very brief summary of some of today’s events that I attended. I plan to do some write-ups over the next several days and weeks. . . . . . . . . .
FUTURE APPROACHES TO TEACHING COMICS IN THE HIGH SCHOOL CLASSROOM - - - If you read our blog on a regular basis then you are probably already aware that I’m an advocate for using comics as a teaching tool. I was absolutely blown away by how Dr. John Weaver, is using THE WATCHMEN in great detail in his Advanced English classes.

MARVEL BOOT CAMP SEMINAR - - - This was a ticketed event, with proceeds to benefit the Hero Initiative.
