@drchaos Absolutely! Mycomicshop will be set up there. We will be buying comics and original art as well as taking in consignments for sale or auction.
It's a great con! One of the best! Marc does an amazing job every year!

'Random' thought/question: Does anyone outside of NY/CA travel out to experience NYCC/SDCC not to make money? Not throwing any shade, seriously just curious, because if I ever did travel to either venue that would be my situation.

@theCapraAegagrus I used to fly to SDCC every year just to have fun! Those days are long gone......

Absolutely. However, part of the problem with NYCC is that the convention center isn't convenient to anything else in the city. The other part is that New York City isn't as enjoyable as it used to be, at least for me.

SDCC is within easy walking distance of just about anything and everything. That said, it's still California and expensive.

I used to have a really good time, the year before COVID it kind of sucked and it's not gotten better since

@theCapraAegagrus

NYCC I would - since I'm only 1.5 hours from the Javits.
As for SDCC - I've gone a number of times and attempt (usually quite successfully) to fund my trip by flipping Preview night comic exclusives.

@theCapraAegagrus live 15mins outside NYC and I've been trying to get to SDCC atleast once. Been going to NYCC forever. It's in a dead area but with all the construction in that area itll be more lively and accessible in the coming years.

Manhattan is walkable (virtually end-to-end) so it is as much about visiting NYC. I lived there (upper west side) and typically not a fan of the convention center for anything really. Car shows, comic conventions… just not an enjoyable setup. Maybe because it was still relatively new the few times I went it also seemed very poorly organized.

They just announced Cassandra Peterson for NYCC.

I know I have a pile of books for her somewhere.

@Jesse_O

I don't get out much. There is a lot of stuff I have been exposed to strictly because I have frequented the forums here. I would have never bought my xmen or daredevil or moonknight keys if I didn't come to forums. I simply didn't know better.

You figure my comic knowledge barely scratches the surface, but at least I'm trying to broaden my horizons?

@Bronte I get it. I learn a bunch of things here also. Some of our members have encyclopedic knowledge of comic books. I sit in awe of them at times.

I tried to have a witty answer to your question and it flopped. Yes, Cassandra Peterson is Elvira. She is one of the few celebrities that I'd love to meet!!!

Understood. In the past, I was told by a psychiatrist that my volunteering was not wanted because I didn't have a sense of humor. (Yeah, who turns down free labor?)

But its all good. =)

@drchaos

If you get anything signed and witnessed, kindly post if it's for sale. I would love to own something from her.

Sorry to hear you will not be at NYCC. I may go, but not sure why. The books I’d go there for I can’t afford. The artists I want to meet aren’t in attendance. Been meaning to send some books in to MCS…would have been great if they were there.

@sborock , Does MCS have interest in RICC? I’m Likely to show up there…may bring the kids to that one for fun. Would love to drop some graded books off with MCS for consignment. Otherwise I guess I’m mailing them in…

Maybe I'll get a sketch cover done and have it signed to go with this one...

Lots of guests have been added to artist alley in the app.

I don't think all of them show up on the guest list yet.

I looked at the exhibitor list and did not see Image, Oni Press, Boom Studios or Titan.

@drchaos I didn't see Dark Horse either, but I havent checked in a few days. Dark Horse usually has a few good signings. IDW's free signings are low key impressive.

Reservations were starting at noon today but due to a technical issue the page is unavailable.

Called customer service and only solution is to keep trying until it works.

@drchaos you would think they would learn from the years previous.

Emails didn't go out until after 12pm, the website had the link prior to 12pm but the link gave you a 404 error.

So frustrating.

Has anyone heard of any complaints or had similar experiences with SDCC. If not youd think ReedPop would take some notes.

..... and every year I get an email from Reed that starts as follows: "we did not anticipate ...."

I mean wtf? You didn't anticipate every ticket holder would be trying to register for panels when it went live? It's like dealing with a 4 year old
