As a cord cutter and a bit of geek, I’ve always wanted a steaming channel that catered to things like Comic Books, B horror, 80 cartoons, and Anime. It took me a while, but I think I found just what I’m looking for in ConTV.
Being a kid that grew up in the 80’s, I developed an early love of comic books. While I stopped obsessively buying comics just before the infamous “Death of Superman“, I still occasionally buy trade paper backs to catch up on great storylines like Marvels Civil War, and World War Hulk.
Up until a few years ago, a grown man in his 30s reading comic books would have been considered odd by many. However, with the recent success of films like the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, comic books are now a part of mainstream culture. Comic Book Conventions used to be viewed as “Nerd-a-palooza.” These days, the San Diego Comic-Con is a Red Carpet event full of A-List celebrities.
My daughter and I recently attended Baltimore Comic-Con. This Comic-Con is a more traditional Comic Con focused on comic book artists and dealers. However, the bulk of the crowd consisted of families who were simply out doing something fun for the day.
There was enough there to fill your weekend. Aside from looking at the millions of comic book that surrounded us. We could check out panels on numerous panels dealing with everything from comic history and entertainment to social justice issues in comics.
There we’re ample opportunities to meet and talk to comic book creators. And for a fee, we would could even meet the stars of Arrow and Agents of Shield.

While there, I discovered a way to enjoy every major Comic Con from the privacy of your own living room.
