The first Saturday & Sunday of August brings Philadelphia and New York area comic book fan a chance to attend an intimate comic book convention that is book on books and small on big-name celebrities.

This is actually going to be the third time I’ll be attending this small convention which is housed in a small- to mid-sized convention hall in the Merchant’s Square Mall in Allentown. The last few times I attended turned out to be great days not just for my comic shopping but also for meeting comic book creators and fans.

Some of the more well-known comic book guests appearing at this summer’s Mega show are:
Neal Adams
Scott Hanna
Rob Hunter
Tom Smith
Jim Steranko
Neil Vokes
JK Woodward
and others

Other attendees include Jeremy Bulloch (the man underneath the Boba Fett costume), Jackass’ Brandon DiCamillo, Enter the Dragon co-star Jim Kelly, David Yost (Billy the Blue Power Ranger) and Tron’s Cindy Morgan.

General Information for the convention is as follows:

Merchants Square Mall
