Scarlet Witch by Bob Petrecca

Press Release:

It is the return of the Philadelphia Comic-Con on Sunday October 20th.  This comic book convention is held at the Clarion Hotel (formerly the Ramada) located at 76 Industrial Highway (Route 291) in Essington, PA 19029.  The hotel is conveniently located off of exit 9A on I-95.  It is also close to I-76,I-476 and most bridges from New Jersey.  Show hours are 10 AM to 4 PM.

Admission is only $3 per person.  Students of any age (including college) are admitted free with a current id.   Parking is also free on premises.  For those of you that do not drive Septa Bus Route 37 stops directly in front of the hotel.

It is quite a site to behold with 60+ tables at the show in the 4,500 square foot ballroom of the hotel.  Dealers from 5 states setup there selling, buying and even trading with collectors. Thousands and thousands of comic books from the 1940′s to present day will be for sale at the show.  Also available will be collecting supplies, graphic novels, action figures, statues, non-sportcards, dvd’s and original artwork.  The show has become a fan favorite for years with people travelling up to 3 hours one way just to shop at the show.

A costume contest will be held during show hours starting at 230 PM.  Categories will be kids 16 and under, adult and groups of 2 or more.  We are suggesting a comic book or sci fi theme for each of the three categories but all entrants should feel free to dress as they wish as long as what they wear would be appropriate for an all ages show.

Special guest artists are Bob Petrecca who was worked on various titles for DC Comics including Batman.  Sketch card artist Laura Inglis, self publishers Michael Mills and Angela McKendrick round out the guest list.
