The Baltimore Comic-Con is coming up in August, and even though it follows on the heals of the big San Diego comic convention, the group is still pulling in a slew of guests from IDW, Top Shelf, Image, Boom! Studios, Top Cow, Dark Horse, and more.

“Our guest list is really picking up momentum now,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con.  “We’re happy to be adding guests from past years and welcoming new ones this year too.  We are especially proud to welcome new guests Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez and Jonathan Hickman this year, since we know that they will fit in with our great group of returning guests.  If you are a comic book fan, you will want to be in Baltimore in August!  Needless to say, we’re thrilled to welcome the Adhouse, Dark Horse, IDW, and Top Shelf crews back, and look forward to hearing what all of their latest and greatest projects will be.”

After seeing this list (after the jump), I wish I had the time, the money, and the time, to go to this show!

    Man. I wish Top Cow and Dark Horse came to Philly. We didn’t have any big name companies show up at all. :(
