Check out the Topless Robot Road Trips: The 15 Nerdiest Places in Philadelphia. Among other sweet, offbeat things places worth visiting, they’ve got some words for the Locust Moon Comics Festival, which clocks in at #3 on the countdown:
If you happen to be in Philly on October 5th, you definitely need to check out the Locust Moon Comics Festival. An offshoot of the popular comic store/gallery space in University City, this fest–now in its second year–brings together local artists and national industry figures for an event that offers a much-needed alternative to huge cons. The owners of the shop are the men responsible for last year’s amazing Once Upon a Time Machine compilation from Dark Horse, and they have used their cred to lineup an array of guests that includes Farel Dalrymple, Michael Kupperman and Jay Lynch as well as Philly comic staples like Jeffro Kilpatrick and Box Brown. This event is about creativity, not commerce, and it is the perfect example of how welcoming Philly’s comic scene is to all.
