Baltimore Comic-Con News You Can Use

by
The 2018 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 28-30, 2018. If you haven’t bought your General Admission, VIP, Fan Package, or Ringo Awards tickets yet, doing so now will avoid additional lines upon arrival. If you cannot purchase tickets until coming to the show for any reason, box office hours begin at 8am ET daily on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
