It is the return of the Philadelphia Comic-Con on Sunday September 18th. The comic book convention is held at the Ramada Philadelphia Airport located at 76 Industrial Highway (Route 291) in Essington, PA 19029. The hotel is conveniently located between exits 8 and 9A off of 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 are admitted free with a current id. Also admitted free are active military personnel and their families. 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 6 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 just to shop at the show.
Special guest artist this show is the very prolific comic book artist Greg Larocque. Perhaps best known for his stint on “Flash” by DC Comics in the 1990’s he is back working on a Flash comic book. “Retroactive Flash” hit the comic book stores in August. Stop by your local comic shop to pick up a copy as Greg will be signing them for free. Greg will also be signing any item he has worked on for free. There is a charge for sketches and original artwork. We are also proud to announce that Greg has chosen this show for his only area appearance this year.
