Seeing as how I’m not the only one that thoroughly enjoys Artist Alley during NYCC and always make time for it, ReedPop has announced its Special Edition: NYC – Comic Book Festival, which will take place June 14th and 15th at the Javits Center. This comic book festival is designed for fans who want to connect with comic book creators and artists in a setting separate from the NYCC experience and can interact with other attendees who are as passionate about comic books as they are. It’s also a unique opportunity to connect with indie artists and comic book creators as well, who tend to get overlooked in the larger crowd at NYCC. Here’s the official blurb from ReedPop and the current lists of guests:
“From rising stars to living legends, Special Edition: NYC is the place where fans will be able to meet their comic book heroes and get exclusive access to Special Guests from the pages of mainstream, alternative, indie, international and web comics. Artists and creators will also have the opportunity to connect with their fans. Special Guests already scheduled to appear at Special Edition: NYC, include: Alex Maleev (Daredevil), Brian Wood (DMZ), Charles Soule (Letter 44), Dustin Nguyen (Batman: Lil Gotham), Frank Cho (Savage Wolverine), Greg Pak (Action Comics), James Tynion IV (Batman Eternal), Jenny Frison (Revival), Joe Eisma (Morning Glories), Joe Harris (The X-Files: Season 10), Kyle Higgins (Nightwing), Marguerite Bennett (Batman Annual #2), Michael Moreci (Hoax Hunters), Mike Norton (Revival), Nick Bradshaw (Wolverine and the X-Men), Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire), Ramon K Perez (Wolverine and the X-Men), Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts), Ryan Stegman (Wolverine) and Tim Seeley (Revival).”
Fans can buy tickets starting on Wednesday (February 26) at 12:00 PM EST at the Special Edition: NYC site.
