It’s a busy week ahead in the world of cons!
On Wednesday, New York Comic Con tickets go on sale online! A huge con with a lot of TV, movies, gaming, books and, yes, comics, it’s the highlight of the fall!
Even though the con isn’t until October, if past years are any indication, tickets will go really fast so make sure you prep and get online prior to noon EDT. They will probably sell out in 90 minutes or less. (Click here for more information on ticket limits and such!)
Alternatively, if you attend Special Edition: NYC (the Spring, comic-focused sister show to NYCC) on June 6th or 7th , there is a limited amount of NYCC tickets available there.
Lastly, the third (last resort), way to get tickets in-person at specific Midtown Comics locations sometime this summer. I say this is the last resort since I had a friend do this last year – he got in line at 4 am (!!!) and it was a mess. He finally did get tickets (yeah!), but it wasn’t until 4 pm. That’s right. 12 hours in line. So this is the last resort method.
Following its success last year, NYCC is also sponsoring the New York Super Week Card which gets you discounts to various Super Week activities.
Grab your tickets for NYCC on Wednesday!
After you get your tickets on Wednesday, head on over to Atlantic City Boardwalk Con (ACBC!) which kicks off with a party on Thursday night!
The newest, shiniest kid on the block, this is going to be a really fun con! It’s being put together by people who are huge fans and who know the con business. It’s going to be set up to be super crowd-friendly with huge aisles and lockers to stash your stuff (Why doesn’t every con have that?).
There will be a lot of celebrities on hand including Stan Lee and cast members from Guardians of the Galaxy, The Flash, Arrow, Once Upon A Time, Gotham, Star Trek, Animaniacs and more.
There’s also a variety of panels including a bunch of intro to cosplay classes to teach you about molding, or leather working or whatever. There’s also a huge cosplay contest to crown Mr. and Ms. Cosplay.
Oh and the publishers will be present! Boom, Aspen and more! Marvel will have an enormous both that, rumor has it, is even bigger than what they have in San Diego. There’s lots of big Marvel news happening so this will be the place to be!
The con badges come in various levels which may also include a couple of concerts and after-hours parties. There’s also a fun scavenger hunt where you collect pictures with specific cosplay characters for points. Winner gets a sizeable gift certificate which this sounds like fun!
Tickets are still available at the ACBC website. A little something for everyone at ACBC!
