State Fair Every year, the Maryland State Fair promises the "11 best days of summer. " This year, they might just mean it. First off, of course, there's the midway, one that includes a carousel for the kids and gravity-defying thrill rides for the kid in everyone, plus games of chance that look real simple until you try them. Add to that tons of food and all sorts of vendors, throw in the myriad politicians being as personable as can be while trolling for votes (it is an election year, after all)

Greg LaRocque has been drawing comic books for more than 30 years, part of a love affair with the medium that dates to 1961, when Marvel's Fantastic Four first appeared on newsstands. Michael Bracco, on the other hand, didn't start appreciating comics until he was a student at the Maryland Institute College of Art about a dozen years ago. This weekend, the two Baltimore-area artists will be among nearly 500 comic-book creators gathering for the annual Baltimore Comic-Con. Saturday and Sunday, they'll meet and greet, discuss their art, and maybe even sketch a character or two for fans to frame and hang on the wall.

Stan Lee is one proud father these days. You'd be proud, too, if your progeny included Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and the Fantastic Four — characters whose films routinely bring in a few hundred million dollars at the movie box office. Not that Lee has much to do with the movies themselves: His connection is restricted to a largely honorary executive-producer credit and a cameo in each film — as a swinging Hugh Hefner-type in "Iron Man," mailman Willie Limpkin in "Fantastic Four," an Army general in this summer's "Captain America.

When it comes to his Baltimore Comic-Con, organizer Marc Nathan takes that word "comic" seriously. The annual fan gathering is a comic-book convention, he stresses, not a pop-culture convention or a cool stuff convention or a famous people convention. "It's about comics, illustrated art, that kind of thing," says Nathan, whose day job is running the Cards, Comics & Collectibles shop in Reisterstown. "It doesn't make sense for our vendors to have these other people there to take up valuable space that would otherwise go to people who do make sense.
