You’ve probably realized this by now, but I just love hitting the assorted conventions that cater to my level of geekdom and this weekend’s “Big Apple Christmas Con” will be the final convention that I attend this year. I used to end my adventures of this kind with the New York Comic Con, but then Winter Con popped up and also Anime NYC and now there is this brand-new offshoot of the popular Big Apple Comic Con. Let’s take a look at the recently revealed programming for the day.
The Press Release:
Big Apple Comic Convention, New York City’s longest-running premier boutique comic books and popular culture show, revealed its program of events for the Big Apple Christmas Con holiday party this Saturday, December 14 at the New Yorker Hotel.
“This is the beginning of a new era for comics in New York!” says Big Apple Comic Con founder Michael Carbonaro.
This special one-day event will include everything the Big Apple Comic Con has become known for, as well as free gifts (with a focus on those under the age of 14), fabulous prize giveaways, an exhibition of Christmas-themed comic books, an auction of original comic artwork by some of the best-known artists in the world, with all proceeds to going to Covenant House New York (which provides residential services to homeless, runaway and exploited youth), a holiday-themed cosplay contest and an extra special appearance by the one and only Christmas super-hero: Santaman!
