As many of you know scheduling issues with the Javits Center have forced our good griends at NYCC to push the next three day party to NEXT October! BUT that doesn't mean we have to wait a year for some New York ComicCon goodness! Check it out:
NEW YORK COMIC CON COMES TO BROOKLYNThe next NYCC isn't until October 8-10, 2010, but New York fans don't need to wait until next year to see us again. Nope. NYCC is coming to Brooklyn this September! That's right, NYCC is setting up shop outside the Javits for the very first time. September 13 by Brooklyn Borough Hall is the Brooklyn Book Festival, an annual, free celebration of literacy in all its forms, and NYCC is joining with the BBF this year to present the New York Comic Con Pavilion -- a tent, stage, and collection of publishers, artists, and partners -- that will shine a spotlight on the worlds of comics and graphic novels. Guests include Denny O'Neill, Phil Jimenez, Molly Crabapple, Dean Haspiel, and Danny Fingeroth. You're coming, too, right?
ONE-YEAR-OUT PARTYSpeaking more of NYCC's dates, we've got some other events planned between now and October 8-10, 2010. Want an example? How about a One-Year-Out Party? Fans and pros in Chicago were invited to a C2E2 One-Year-Out Party at John Barleycorn's on April 16, 2009, one year to the day to the first day of C2E2, and this October, we're treating NYC-area fans to a similar event -- an evening of food, drink, prizes and announcements to start the long road to the next New York Comic Con! Where is it? We'll be revealing that soon, but if you're a comics fan in New York City, mark October 8, 2009 on your calendar now, as you're invited to an NYCC Party!
I will continue to keep you all posted and if you want to see first hand what is going on with NYCC, check them out at http://www.newyorkcomiccon.com/
Now go out and have a bagel!
