The Alternative Comic Con: Tradition Need Not Apply

Like many other ideas throughout history, the Philadelphia Alternative Comic Con was born in a bar. That bar, the now-closed Skinner’s Tavern in Old City, served as a hangout for a group of local artists calling themselves the Philly Comix Jam. They meet, they drink, they draw. And they were the friends who helped convention founder Pat Aulisio nurture and raise his brainchild.
