I’m back from a great weekend at the 2009 Baltimore Comic Con where I was privileged to be a guest of Asgard Press. We had a great crowd and I was very pleased with the interest in the Asgard products, including the DC and Marvel Vintage Comic Book Calendars. I signed a number of the DC Calendars, and enjoyed talking to many fans of the Golden Age of Comic Books Podcast.
While at the show I was able to find the time to conduct some interviews and put together a Special Edition Baltimore Comic Con Podcast.
I conducted an interview of Peter Shin of Asgard Press, where we talk about the Vintage Calendars and other great products offered by Asgard. You really need to check out the great products at their website.
One of the great things about Baltimore for Golden Age fans is Geppi’s Entertainment Museum. Museum Curator, Dr. Arnold Blumberg was at the show and I was pleased to be able to interview him about the Museum. Not only does the Museum exhibit some rare Golden Age comics and memorabilia, it offers great programs for young and old. Arnold mentions of number of these programs in the interview.
I was fortunate to have a few minutes to talk to the great Don Rosa, who makes his third appearance on the Golden Age of Comic Books Podcast. We talk about everything from The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, to Golden Age Fandom, to a discussion of Don’s two favorite Barks’ adventures. Don is always a gentleman and loves to talk about comics more than I do!
Last but not least, this episode contains the second annual trivia contest! The first listener to email me the correct answer to the two questions (and all subparts) will receive an autographed copy of the 2010 Vintage DC Comics Calendar and a copy of the 2010 Vintage Marvel Comics Calendar. There will only be one winner so make sure you quickly do your research and email your answer! The email address for your entry is firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll reveal the name of the winner and the answers in a later post.
Thanks again to Peter and Mi-Sun of Asgard Press for making this a truly great weekend at the Baltimore Comic Con. I am already counting the days to next year!
