Justin and I decided to attend the 2010 Philadelphia Comic Con because we love pop culture and it seemed like a great opportunity to meet some people, check out some artists, and spend a fun afternoon in the city. This year's comic con was huge, there were so many people at the convention center and the list of celebrities seemed endless. The list featured Patrick Stewart, Linda Hamilton, Adam West, James Marsters, Bruce Campbell, and many more!
We spent about 6-7 hours overall at the event and it was a lot of fun. We met James Marsters who was really nice and he signed an autograph for me. We wanted to see Bruce Campbell but the line for pictures and autographs was closed. However, when we were sitting and having a snack he walked by us while we were eating. Additionally a lot of attendees showed up in costume and posed for photographs throughtout the day.
