I’ve been apart of long-running shows before, but we’re talking maybe 2 decades. The Sci-Fi & Fantasy show PhilCon is celebrating it’s 77th year in the Philly area! Another first for me, a full-fledged SCIENCE FICTION show! Z&F are aliens, they should fit right in, no? Come on out to say hi, browse the 3 Z&F volumes, get a T-shirt or figurine before they’re all gone, pick up some fun geeky prints, or even purchase a commission as a holiday gift!
