New York Comic Con, NYC Event

New York Comic Con, an NYC Event, Attracts Geeks from Around the World

This NYC Event is the largest of its kind in the country, and people come from around the world to attend New York Comic Con.

September 26, 2016

New York City doesn’t like being in second place. For many years, San Diego’s comic con was the top such event in the country. In 2013, this NYC Event took first place when more than 151,000 attendees bought tickets to New York Comic Con. That number beat the San Diego event by more than 20,000. Last year, the number of attendees grew to 170,000, and organizers are expecting another record year. For those who love all things sci-fi, attending this Event in NY – at least once – is a must.

Another thing that this NYC Event has over the San Diego Comic Con is that it’s not nearly as difficult to get tickets. That doesn’t mean the tickets won’t sell out but, even at the late hour of this writing, some tickets were still available. The San Diego event typically sells out completely within an hour after tickets go on sale, which makes getting a ticket seem as impossible as winning the lottery.

While the tickets to the NYC Event are easier to get, you can be sure that New York Comic Con is just as exciting. Everything people love about comic cons can be found at this Event in NY. Whatever you feel is the highlight of attending a comic con will take place at the NYC Event. A few of the popular features of New York Comic Con are:

  • Costume contests
  • Celebrity meet and greets
  • Panel discussions
  • Auctions
  • Vendor area
  • Heroes and Villains Party
  • Fandom Fest with BookCon
  • And much more!

Several celebrities from the world of comics and movies will be on hand. Entertainment guests include Adam West, Ali Larter, Anna Silk, Brian Quinn, Chad Coleman, Carrie Fisher, and many more. Heroes of the comic book world and sci fi authors will also be on hand. Some guests will participate in panel discussions and will be available for photographs. A full list of special guests along with when you can see or meet them is available of the New York Comic Con website.

While some tickets are still available (as of this writing), they are going fast. If you don’t yet have your tickets then act now! If you miss this year’s NYC Event, then start planning now to attend next year’s New York Comic Con. There is no doubt that the list of Events and celebrity guests will be just as impressive as it is this year!
