In June, the ROCKY Statue celebrated a homecoming at the Philadelphia ComicCon. As a first-time ComicCon exhibitor, the Philadelphia Wizard World ComicCon event was where we wanted to start!
With over 95,000 attendees, hundreds of vendors, dozens of celebrity guests, the ROCKY Statue was a popular addition to the show. New and old fans of ROCKY shared their enthusiasm and personal stories about how the statue has inspired them. Our personal highlight was a chance meeting with a gentleman who ran with Sylvester Stallone as a child extra in the iconic ROCKY II running scene.
We’ll be back next year and look forward to seeing you at Wizard World ComicCon Philadelphia on May 7 - 10, 2015.
