Review: This is the second year I attended this show
and I can already tell you it was a little more attentive
attendees wise than last year. Due to the lack of
attendees last year there were fewer vendors to
purchase from this year. Luckily CGC doing onsite
grading (my biggest draw), the guest was still pretty
decent, minibars all around the showroom floor, and
some cool fun activities. I managed to pick up some
So let's jump to Sunday. Sunday was the game-changer for the entire con. I went and checked out the last few minutes of the Tom Holland panel. Pretty cool guy. He iterating some things he had said at D23 Expo on the
Sony & Disney feud over Spidey. Once the
panel was done the flood gates of Heaven
had open for vendors and guests. The
showroom floor was packed like we were
at New York Comic-Con. Tom Holland reeled
in A MASSIVE LOT of attendees. It was
incredible. I think he brought in more people
to con than Stan Lee himself (rest his comic
soul). Tom Holland was not only the hero of
Keystone Comic-Con but he was the peoples
champion too. Long before his panel was over
tickets were sold out to get a photo op or sig from him.
Even though Keystone Comic-Con hasn't hit the level of C2E2 or NYCC attendee wise it's one of my favorite cons to attend on a personal level. I like being able to walk through the con and not get bumped or squeeze through a sea of people. I like being able to buy comics for a decent price or getting sketches done and meeting creators. It makes me miss Reedpop's Special Edition New York Con (check out my old review for that).
Overview: I highly recommend this con if you like to buy comics and get your books graded or if you like going to Philly. I still need to try a steak and cheese from here. Thanks for reading and remember, stay geeky gang.
