Phillipsburg Comic-Con Is The Place To Be!

♦ You can support a good cause and meet top comic creators by going to Phillipsburg High School’s Comic-Con on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at the new Phillipsburg High School from 10am-4pm! That’s right a comic convention held in a school! When I was a lad…

Phillipsburg Comic-Con is held yearly by the students of Phillipsburg High School Comic and Anime and Manga Clubs, and manages to attract guests that are the envy of many, larger, conventions including Walt Simonson, Joe Kelly, Louise Simonson, Amy Chu, Franco, Jacob Chabot, Scott Hanna, Chris Giarrusso, Rags Morales, Will Rosada, Lee Weeks and others… I’m thinking that this might be a smaller more intimate event where you can actually chat to creators and fellow fans, and the comic stuff isn’t pushed out too much by other, more commercial, concerns. Here is the sales pitch:

Phillipsburg High School Comic and Anime & Manga clubs are proud to host the third annual Phillipsburg Comic-Con!

Phillipsburg Comic-Con will be held on Saturday, May 2017at the new Phillipsburg High School from 10am-4pm. This family-friendly event includes guest creators, local vendors, small businesses, kids activities, and giveaways.

Entrance is $5, children 10 and under are free if accompanied by a paid adult.

We will give out free comics and a past year’s comic-con exclusive print (pencilled by Rags Morales) to each attendee, while supplies last. Other giveaways include DVDs, CDs, and posters. Quantities are limited, so get to the event early!

Club members have decided to donate the 2017 show proceeds to RAINN, an organization that provides help to survivors of rape and sexual abuse.

Without our sponsors, we could not host this community event. Thank you, PHS Comic Club, PHS Anime and Manga Club, Comic Masters, The Comic Book Shop, Phillipsburg Education Association, Tales of Adventure, 3rd Earth Comics, TriOutdoor, ShopRite, and Sheridan Communications for helping us bring a comic-con to Phillipsburg!
