OAKS, PA> This is the con you're looking for....The Great Philadelphia Comic Con descended upon the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA! Mass amounts of cosplayers, comic fans, movie buffs, artists, crafters and vendors made up the unique, once-a-year, fan experience! In their fourth year, The Great Philadelphia Comic Con pulled all the stops when it came to celebs and guests! Everyone from the original Yellow Ranger from the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers pilot episode, Audri DuBois all the way to Vil Kilmer! It truly was an amazing fan experience.
Since this con's inception four years ago, it has grown by leaps and bounds. This year was definitely a show stopper! Immediately upon entering the venue, there were amazing artists and vendors at every turn. The choices were enormous! Toys, comics, original art, vintage pieces, independent comics, independent novels, cosplay apparel and more! You name it, The Great Philadelphia Comic Con had it! This totally was the place to "Get UR Geek On!"
The celebrity turnout was top notch! I personally spoke to several including, Muppet legend Steve Whitmire (a separate interview piece is also available to read), known for performing the role of Kermit the Frog upon Jim Henson's death, and Steve Cardenas (Rocky DeSantos from the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers). Cast members from Game of Thrones, Black Lightning AND Luke Cage were on hand to greet guests, sign autographs and take photos.
The greater Philadelphia area is already gearing up for next year, which can't come soon enough! All in all, definitely keep The Greater Philadelphia Comic Con on your "to-do" list for 2019! Be sure to follow them on social media: @PhillyComicCon and online at www.philadelphiacomiccon.com
