DC NATION: Baltimore Comic Con = Awesome

Greetings DC Nation! We’ve been super busy racking up the frequent flyer points this month as the 2010 DC Nation Tour has been in full swing. I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all the fans we’ve met recently. You guys have been incredibly supportive and cool at the shows and I think a big part of that is the excitement we all feel about the DCU right now.
