What’s your favorite part of attending a Comic Con? The costume contests? Meeting celebrities? The chance to meet others with similar interests? You’ll find all of that and much, much more at this exciting NYC Event. While it is very difficult to get tickets to San Diego’s Comic Con (they famously sell out within hours of when ticket sales open), getting tickets to the Event in NY is much easier. In fact, tickets were still available a couple of weeks prior to New York Comic Con.

Meeting writers, actors, and illustrators is always one of the highlights of any comic con, and attendees will not be disappointed by this year’s lineup. A full list of special guests is available on the New York Comic Con website. Some of this year’s guests are Adam West, Ali Larter, Anna Silk, Brian Quinn, Chad Coleman, and Carrie Fisher. Some of the guests will take photographs with fans, participate in panel discussions, or sign autographs.

The panel discussions are a feature of this NYC Event that is a must for hardcore fans. Experts and fans will discuss the intricacies of various storylines, movies, and more. View a full schedule of panel discussions on the event website. Auctions, a vendor area, BookCon, and much more are other features of New York Comic Con that helped to propel it to its position at the top such event in the country.

Be sure to stop by the costume contests. Even if you don’t plan to enter, you won’t want to miss the chance to see the amazing detail, thought, and creativity that goes in to making the elaborate creations. Get your picture taken with your favorites and see which costume takes first place.
