New York Comic Con is an amazing event in Gotham City! I mean, in New York City. It’s a huge event gathering from comics to movies and series fans… Last year, more than 200,000 people attended Comic Con. It’s an event for the whole family.
What is Comic Con?
New York Comic Con is a convention featuring the main actors and artists of comics, manga, graphic novels, video games, movies and series. The first convention took place in 2006, and since then, it returns to New York every year in October at the Jacob K. Javits Center.
The New York Comic Con is organized by ReedPOP, and specialized in “killer events” designed for pop culture fans such as Comic Con from other cities and countries (Paris, Vienna, Seoul, India …), not to mention Star Wars Celebration, BookCon, videogame exhibitions and more.
What to see during the New York Comic Con?
>The Jacob K. Javits convention center is enormous, offering great space for this event. The layout of the convention changed with the demolition of the North Hall, but the Comic Con is organized around:
– the basement or Level 1: presentation of the artists or “Artist Alley” where you can ask for autographs; video projections; conference rooms. In general, there are many people there and there are long waiting for lines to attend a conference and discussion panels.
– Level 3, is a gigantic room for the “Show Floor“, that is, where there are comic book sellers,
toys and collectibles,
video game stands.
– Level 2 and the corridors are used for different installations, games…
Who goes to Comic-Con?
I think it’s the most interesting thing about Comic Con. Indeed, most of comic con goers are cosplay amateurs. If you’re not familiar with this world/word, know that it is more than a costume, it is true culture. The cosplay consists of wearing a COStume and interpreting the character (PLAYing).
And I can say that the children love it too!
Are there admission fees?
Yes, you can buy an entry for a single day or the whole weekend. It will take place from October 12 to 15, 2023.
Where is the New York Comic Con?
It is organized in the Jacob K. Javits convention center, west of Manhattan. It is very easy to get there with subway line 7, just stop at 34th Street – Hudson Yards. You will be a few steps away from the northern entrance of the High Line.
Address: 655 West 34th Street, New York, NY 10001
The New York Comic Con is an event that I recommend to all fans of this modern culture. But the truth is that everyone can like it. I think we all know Star Wars, Marvel, DC Comics… If you do not want to pay for the entrance, I suggest that you walk around the area to see some cosplays.
