Philadelphia Alternative Comic Con (PACC) is an annual event for fans of “all things alternative/fringe/indy/art comics and zines.” This year it is happening on Sunday, August 8th at the Rotunda, located at 4014 Walnut Street. The hours are 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Some of the exhibitors at Philadelphia Alternative Comic Con include JT Wilkins, Cody Pickrodt, Robert Woods, Robin Enrico, Bryan G. Brown, Matt Wiegle, Sally Bloodbath, Rusty Rowley, Locust Moon Comics, Pterodactyl Philadelphia, Claire Folkman, Jim Kettner, and many many more (seriously, the list is huge).

One of the events at PACC will be the release of the second issue of the tabloid “Secret Prison”, which attendees can have signed.

Entry for this convention is done on a sliding scale, with prices ranging from $3 to $10. Those who pay $10 for entry will receive a copy of the PACC anthology, which is designed by Philadelphian Box Brown. It features art from Matt Wiegle, L. Nichols, Lance Hansen, Ian Harker, and more.
