This year was my first year attending the Baltimore Comic Con and it was better than I expected it to be. Baltimore Comic Con takes place at the Baltimore Convention Center, the same convention center as Otakon. From what a lot of convention goers were telling, the con has grown a lot from what it started out as. While the con was only 2 days, Saturday & Sunday event, starting next year they will be becoming a 3 day event. Save the date: September 5-7, 2014. The one interesting fact I heard from the hotel staff is that cons like this actually help drive in more business to that area than anything else. Considering that area is a huge tourist spot, I can see how that makes sense.
