Catch the Wave

The Philadelphia Comic Con is returning on Sunday, September 20, 2020. The convention will be held in the presidential ballroom of the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center at 76 Industrial Highway, Essington, PA.

The show has gone through some changes with a new format, due to COVID-19, with expanded hours, free admission and free parking. There will be fewer vendors and fans allowed on the show floor at one time since Pennsylvania is limiting gatherings to 25 people at one time. The event will have 3,000 square feet, 25 tables, and 9 vendors.

Dealers this Sunday are Robs Kool Komics, RC Comics, AA Comics and Cards, Bob Cook, Jim Montgomery, Collectors Comics, Gary Platt, Dave Reynolds, and Gene Carpenter of All-American Comics. 

A mask must be worn anytime within the show itself and that includes anywhere inside the hotel property. Appointments are a must with hour limits for the hours of 9 AM, 10 AM, and 11 AM. It is first come, first served from 12 PM to 4 PM, but showrunners request that attendees be mindful of others waiting in line to get in. To book an appointment, get in touch with the show promoter Derek Woywood by emailing dwoywood@yahoo.com or calling (856) 217-5737.  

More info can be found on Facebook on the Philadelphia Comic Con and Comic Book Shows pages. After this date, they will be having their grand finale of the year on November 15.
