New York Comic Convention This Weekend

Simply Superheroes Blog | New York Comic Convention This Weekend

This weekend from Friday to Sunday is the New York Comic Convention, East Coast's largest and most exciting pop culture convention in midtown Manhattan at Jacob K. Javits Center (655 West 34th Street).  The show floor plays host to the latest and greatest in comics, graphic novels, anime, manga, video games, toys, movies, and television.

Last year over 77,000 people attended over the three days.  Even more are expected to attend. Last year we blogged about how to survive the San Diego Comic Con that applies to this one.

There will be many panels and screenings.  The most helpful information to keep track of all the events are on the official website:
