BALTIMORE, MARYLAND - August 30, 2016 - The 2016 Baltimore Comic-Con is just around the corner. We know we're providing a lot of information in a short period, but we wanted to make sure you have all of the important details about the show!

Of course, as always, we are at the Baltimore Convention Center, and this year's show takes place the weekend of September 2-4, 2016. If you haven't bought your General Admission, VIP, or Harvey Awards  tickets yet, doing so now will avoid additional lines upon arrival.
