When Philadelphia Comic-Con returns this Sunday, January 19, it will be bringing two comics legends to town. Headlining this month's show are Herb Trimpe ("The Incredible Hulk") and Paris Cullins ("Green Lantern," "Blue Beetle"). The Philly Comic-Con will once again be 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. 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.
Herb Trimpe is best known for his work on "The Incredible Hulk," where he had a seven year run on the title. Trimpe's run included #180-181, which featured the first appearances of Wolverine of the X-Men.
In addition to a well known run on "Blue Beetle" for DC Comics, Paris Cullins, a Philadelphia native, is the co-creator of Blue Devil for DC Comics.
The Philadelphia Comic-Con is from 10AM-4PM, on January 19, at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center. Door prizes will be given away every hour, beginning at 11AM. So be sure to get there early! Prizes include show cash to be spent at the convention.
