Attention all Comic Book Fans! There is a new convention in town and it is happening this weekend! Yes, you have read this correctly as tomorrow and Sunday (June 14th and 15th respectively) is the debut of a convention known as “Special Edition: NYC” and its under the guiding eye of the fine folks at Reed Pop who have been handling the massive NY Comic Con for many years. Check out this cool logo below 🙂
To give you a better idea of the overall premise, I cribbed this paragraph from their own website as it will give you a proper example of what this whole weekend will be about…
“Celebrate your love of comic books, cartooning, illustration and the graphic arts at Special Edition: NYC, a new comic book festival held annually in the birthplace of comics – New York City! From rising stars to living legends, Special Edition: NYC is the place to meet your favorite comic book heroes and get exclusive access to special guests from the pages of mainstream, alternative, indie, international and web comics. At Special Edition: NYC you will have the opportunity to collect the latest comics, buy the hard to find back issues and add original art to your collection. Special Edition: NYC is a pure celebration of comic book culture created specifically for die-hard comic book fans, creators and publishers! Special Edition: NYC is an intimate event that is focused solely on the art, creation and culture of comic books. Special Edition: NYC is located in Javits Center North and will feature comic book creators, dealers and a limited number of panel discussions. Special Edition: NYC is an event where Fans can meet their favorite comic book creators in an intimate environment. Special Edition: NYC is organized by ReedPOP, the creators of New York Comic Con, however this is a completely unique event and not meant to be a mini New York Comic Con.”
PiercingMetal Thoughts: As our readers who have been following the adventures a little longer than some others will know, I love me a good convention and have laid down plenty of coverage on things like NY Comic Con, Toy Fair, Book Expo and some additional things that fall on my other site nowadays. With that being the case I welcome this new event to the mix with open arms and since I have been approved for the proper press credentials, I shall be able to report on this as professionally as possible. It sure sounds interesting to me so I am planning on attending the pair of days and taking a whole lot of photos since you folks really like that stuff. Stay tuned and if you still need tickets there are a few remaining so click that link below and I shall see you there.
