The Baltimore Comic-Con has added more guests to the next convention on October 28-30, 2022. When the con returns to the Baltimore Convention Center, they will host Brett Breeding, Kevin Cuffe, Bob Frantz, Adriana Melo, Khoi Pham, and Billy Tucci.

He is well recognized for his work on Superman titles, especially the “Death of Superman” storyline, and on Spider-Man titles, The Mighty Thor, The Avengers, and West Coast Avengers. He also originated the idea that Steve Rogers could wield Thor’s hammer Mjolnir when he was working on Thor #390, and Ron Frenz and writer Tom DeFalco turned it into a key story.
