Philadelphia Comic-Con returns this Sunday, April 27, and is bringing the classic "Batman" 1960s Batmobile with it. This month's headline guest is Philadelphia native Paris Cullins ("Green Lantern," "Blue Beetle"). The Philly Comic-Con is held at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center (formerly the Ramada Philadelphia Airport) in Essington, PA.
Philadelphia Comic-Con is the city's longest running comic convention and has an admission fee of only $3! Admission is free to students of any age with current ID (including college). Parking is free. Convention goers will have access to dozens of vendors selling Golden & Silver Age and new comics, action figures, trading cards and original art across 60 different tables. Vendors in the recent past have sold comics for as low as 10 cents an issue!
The full size 1966 Batmobile replica will be available for viewing and photo opportunities in the hotel's parking lot, weather permitting.
In addition to a well known run on "Blue Beetle" for DC Comics, Paris Cullins is the co-creator of Blue Devil for DC Comics. Other guests include sketch card artist Laura Inglis and the creator of the webcomic “Doctor Warped” Bob Gerkin.
The Philadelphia Comic-Con is from 10AM-4PM, on April 27, at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center. Door prizes will be given away every hour, beginning at 11AM. So, get there early! Prizes include show cash to be spent at the convention.
