BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – August 9, 2013 – Kids 10 and under get in free at the Baltimore Comic-Con September 7-8, 2013 at the Baltimore Convention Center — and show organizers are once again presenting a kid-friendly comics area, full of all-ages comics, as well as the artists and writers who make them. Creators from such companies as Archie, Scholastic, Disney, Simon & Schuster, Marvel, and DC will be on hand to sketch, say hi, and help to teach young ones about the magic of comics through mini-How-To’s through the weekend, right at the Kids Comics Pavilion! Plus, kids can take part in comic crafts, a Jedi Knight light saber training session, and more!
