Game On at Atomic City Comics

If you're a retrogamer, a comic fan, and you live in Philly, your day has come. Our February meetup will take place at Atomic City Comics on South St. This is a rare meetup for the group within the city limits, so we wanna see some of you Philadelphian stalwarts that have yet to attend a meetup, along with those that have. Owner Daryll Jones has graciously offered to host at his store that already has a decent gaming presence with 5 arcade cabinets. We'll also be setting up some monitors and consoles in the front section. If you wanna bring snacks, drinks, games, or systems to share with the group, please let me know. Hope to see you all there.

    Had an awesome time. Glad I popped my comic book cherry at atomic city. Discovered moonwalker and a possible new hobby???? Only sad part? My gargoyles comic book isn't even worth a nickle. Guess mom really can throw that away

    The graciousness and hospitality really came out this day. There's a genuineness about how the store is run and what it is about that just is not quite captured in your "typical" comic book store.

    I think everyone wishes it could've been longer- that's about it really.

    Would I be able to bring an N64 over with Goldeneye and Perfect Dark and four controllers? I also have Star Fox 64 and NFL Blitz. Does anyone have F-Zero X to bring?

    February 21

    • Matt C.

      I would maybe skip the 4-player N64 stuff this time due to screen size limitations. At future meetups, however, this is fine.

    I want to welcome everyone from retrogamers to the store and encourage anyone not sure to come on down.
    You guys can come down and hang out all day!!

    The front area of the store is reserved for you, and ill set aside the rear area also if necessary. Ill provide drinks and snacks for everyone, but if anyone wants to bring in some more I don't mind. I have a friendly pizza place that can provide a discounted lunch/dinner also.

    We play movies at the store, so please bring down game related or any classic 80s-90s movies you would like to watch.

    Please be aware that on street parking near south street is expensive and likely to result in a ticket if not closely monitored. I recommend using a lot if staying for a while. There are a few free spots nearby but they will all be taken by mid-saturday. Call the store for any specific advice [masked])

    Hope to see you!!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
