BALTIMORE, MARYLAND - The Baltimore Comic-Con returns to the Inner Harbor's Baltimore Convention Center for its premiere inaugural three-day event September 5-7, 2014.
We are extremely pleased to announce, courtesy of Dynamite Entertainment, the return of superstar artist John Cassaday to the Baltimore Comic-Con in 2014.
Cassaday, who started his career at the small press Caliber Comics in 1995, began working for Dark Horse Comics in the following year providing art on Ghost, and then Desperadoes.
He went on to work for "The Big Two", with prolific stints on DC's Planetary and Marvel's Astonishing X-Men, X-Men, Captain America, and Uncanny Avengers, and has recently done work on Dynamite Entertainment's Doc Savage.
Cassaday has both been nominated and won numerous prestigious industry awards including Eisner, Eagle, and, for his work on Astonishing X-Men, a Spike TV Scream Award.
His recent work can be found in the pages and covers of Dynamite Entertainment's Doc Savage, and on covers for Marvel's Miracleman, Magneto, Savage Wolverine, and Captain Marvel and Image's Starlight. Find him at the Dynamite Entertainment booth at the Baltimore Comic-Con in 2014!
