New York Comic Con
October 8 through October 11, 2015
Jacob K. Javits Center | 655 West 34th Street New York, NY 10001
For many years, the San Diego Comic Con reined as the biggest such Event in the country. At the 2014 New York Comic Con, however, the record crowds stole that title from San Diego. The more than 150,000 attendees came from around the country and beat the size of the crowd at the San Diego Event by about 20,000. Organizers are expecting record crowds again this year.
Getting tickets to New York Comic Con is like winning the lottery. Many more want to attend than are actually able to get tickets. The lucky fans of comics and sci-fi who did score tickets will have the chance to meet some of their favorite celebrities, writers, and artists. The full schedule of Events and Activities that will take place at New York Comic Con is available on the event website. You will also find a full list of the special guests that will be in attendance.
Costume contests are one popular feature of this New York City Event. You’ll see some of the country’s best cosplayers take to the stage. It’s exciting to see these over-the-top creations, but many fans think it’s just as much fun to get dressed up even if they aren’t participating in the costume contests.
Panel discussions with writers, artists, and others give super fans a chance to delve deeper into topics relating to their favorite comic, TV show, or movie. Discuss the finer details of Doctor Who, The Amazing Economics of Star Trek, and many other fun topics. Other Events at Comic Con include the chance to attend Padawan Training, and learn about Geek journalism. See the full schedule of Events on the Comic Con website.
If you are coming to meet celebrities then you will not be disappointed. Here is just a small sample of this year’s impressive lineup: Billie Piper from Doctor Who, Ben McKenzie from Gotham, Rebecca Romjin from The Librarians, Christian Slater from Mr. Robot, Felicia Day from Geek & Sundry, Finn Jones from Game of Thrones, and many others.
