Do you feel that comic cons like SDCC and NYCC are more like HUGE pop culture events, where a mixture of thousands of fans are all there for different reasons? Do you feel overwhelmed being a comic book fan being among a sea of video games, books, toys, movies, TV shows, and more?! Well ReedPOP has the solution for you!
ReedPOP announced yesterday that there will be a new convention hitting the Javits Center this June, Special Edition: NYC, which promises to be more of a comic book centric show!
Celebrate your love of comic books, cartooning, illustration and the graphic arts at Special Edition: NYC, a new comic book festival held annually in the birthplace of comics – New York City! From rising stars to living legends, Special Edition: NYC is the place to meet your favorite comic book heroes and get exclusive access to special guests from the pages of mainstream, alternative, indie, international and web comics. At Special Edition: NYC you will have the opportunity to collect the latest comics, buy the hard to find back issues and add original art to your collection. Special Edition: NYC is a pure celebration of comic book culture created specifically for die-hard comic book fans, creators and publishers!
Special Edition: NYC is an intimate event that is focused solely on the art, creation and culture of comic books. Special Edition: NYC is located in Javits Center North and will feature comic book creators, dealers and a limited number of panel discussions.
Special Edition: NYC is an event where Fans can meet their favorite comic book creators in an intimate environment. Special Edition: NYC is organized by ReedPOP, the creators of New York Comic Con, however this is a completely unique event and not meant to be a mini New York Comic Con.
This actually sounds pretty amazing. Artist Alley is one of my favorite aspects of NYCC, as I look forward to going back there every year to find a new print to buy, sorry PRINTS. All joking aside, this is a really unique idea and I really like that ReedPOP is listening to the comic fans on this one.
Guests include some of the top talent in the industry and you can check out the growing list here. Special Edition: NYC will run the weekend of June 14th and 15th! Head on over to the official site for more information. Hope to see you there!
