Beloved Institution Entering New Phase
Philadelphia, PA. April 1. Locust Moon, a comic book shop that has been operating in West Philadelphia since 2009, is in the process of expanding into a new location at the corner of 40th and Ludlow St. Including a dedicated art gallery and classroom space, their new facility represents a major step forward for the neighborhood institution.
Their new incarnation represents a wider vision of what a comic book store can be, now including a gallery, arts and education program, and small press, along with their deep and diverse collection of comics and graphic novels, their high-quality art prints, their imported and limited-edition toys, and their vast selection of rare and out-of-print DVDs.
The new Locust Moon will feature gallery shows with major local talents like James Comey and Robert Woods and internationally known names like Farel Dalrymple and J.G. Jones.
