Wizard World Philly Comic Con is this weekend in Philadelphia (June 20-22) and headlining the show are Matt Smith (Dr.Who), David Boreanaz (Bones, Buffy), Nathan Fillion (Serenity, Firefly, Castle), Sebastian Stan (Captian America), Whoopi Goldberg, Norman Reedus and many others had autograph sessions and photo ops. There was no photography allowed by Press once the actors were signing, but you were able to hang around after the con shut down and get shots of the empty booths (see them in the slideshow)

There was a very cool X-Men: Days of Future Past booth, where you could film your own video and pull it up online later, and an awesome Guardians of the Galaxy photo booth ,where you were literally put in the lineup (click here to see my photo from Instagram). The vendors had tons of collectibles from Hasbro to Sideshow and most of them were priced reasonably. Lou Ferrigno was walking the floor on Thursday. He wasn't doing any posed photos or autographs, but he was kind enough to say Hi and shake some hands as he walked to his destination.

The Classic Batmobile, Jurassic Park Jeep, a custom DeLorean DMC-12 from Back to the Future and a very cool The Walking Dead decorated car all were on display, as well as, a Dale Earnhardt race car that he drove in 1997 and 1998. Tom Cook (Classic TV Animator) and Jim Cheung (Marvel Artist) both had full booths both days we were there. Quirk Books was there, and they were kind of tucked away but if you found them, they were handing out large posters for both William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back and the yet to be released William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return.

It was a fun time as always, check out over 70 images from our two days there in the gallery and we look forward to going back next year!
