Road trip to Baltimore Comic Con 2018

The 2018 Baltimore Comic*Con is taking place September 28-30 and I'll be attending. The reasons this convention appeals to me are twofold: a great list of AE creators and a comic-centric show focus.

AE MIA: Missing After Announcing 2018 Edition

In March 2017 I took a look at announced or solicited AE format books that had yet to materialize in AE MIA: Missing After Announcing. Thankfully two from last year's list have seen publication, so there is hope! If a book is still actively scheduled through Diamond, such as Dynamite's Best Of Vampirella Art Edition, it won't be part of this list. As well, if a book hasn't had any mention since the last MIA it won't appear here, such as Carl Barks Uncle Scrooge Artifact Edition.
