NYCC Guests3361

COLLECTOR drchaos private msg quote post Address this user
One of the upcoming shows I will be going to is NYCC. Despite the crowds and other nonsense I am 100% committed to going to the show again this year.

The organizers of this show have held the guest list very close to the vest.

So far they have only announced a handful of celebrity guests (the latest being Mark Hamill) and 35 comic book guests (writers and artists).

The purpose of this thread is to share information about possible guests that will be attending this show. So far after speaking with artists at Massive Con last weekend I have the following information to share:

Jonathan Glapion will have a table at the show (Snyder and Capullo are already confirmed)

Amanda Connor and Jimmy Palmotti will not be attending NYCC this year. The only upcoming show they are confirmed for within a few hours from NYC is Baltimore (They are not doing Boston either).

Between the expense of other upcoming shows and facilitator fees, every artist I can confirm for NYC might save me a few bucks allowing me to buy more oomics.

As it is I am looking at the following shows:

Garden State Comic Fest - Have tickets
Toronto Expo - Thinking of going
Boston Comic Con - Going for sure
Terrificon - Going for sure
Baltimore Comic Con - Have tickets
NYCC - Have tickets
Rhode Island - Thinking of going
Edison Expo - Going for sure

Don't give in to the seduction of chaos, that leads to the dark side...Oh wait, never mind. Carry on.

Construction?? Does this mean it will be a smaller con this year?

The area that has been used for artists alley will be closed.

Artists alley will be in a different area (not normally used?) that is smaller.

It would be nice if they shoved aside some of the toys / anime to make room for more comic artists but I won't hold my breath.

It shouldn't be, just relocation as the Dr has described. Reedpop's solution to the construction was to kill the 4 day pass this year. It will be interesting to see if this actually does anything.
