Philly deals and events

Geek out at the first annual Philly Nerd Con

Brandon Bitros of Blackstone Comics has organized the first of what he plans to be a yearly event celebrating comics, cosplay and nerd art in general. Go in costume to participate in the contest (and get $5 off at the door), or just go to mingle with local artists and creators while a DJ spins and a rock burlesque show plays out on stage.

When: November 4, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. to November 5, 2017 at 1:00 a.m.
