Did you watch Mad Max and leave wanting more? Do you miss movies like 12 Monkeys and look forward to shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Have you watched more than one episode of Star Trek? Then clear your schedule from this Thursday, October 8th through this Sunday, October 11th, because it’s time for the annual New York Comic Con! For four days, you can be part of a group of proud geeks as they immerse themselves in the comics, tv, movies, and games that make up their culture.
What it Is
Attracting over 150,000 (!) attendees in 2014, Comic Con is the second-biggest pop culture convention in America. It features sneak peeks at upcoming movies and tv shows, creates a huge marketplace in which attendees can purchase all manner of video games, comics, and the like, and offers fans a chance to meet and mingle with their favorite stars from geek culture. Whether you’re a hardcore geek, or just like comics or video games, it is the place to be this weekend.
One of the biggest parts of Comic Con is the opportunity to see live some of the hottest stars from tv, movies, and behind the pages of your favorite graphic novels. This year is no exception: Felicia Day (Dr. Horrible’s Song Blog, etc.), John DiMaggio (Futurama, Adventure Time, and Gears of War), Nathan Fillion (Firefly and Castle), and Vin Diesel (from… well, you know who Vin Diesel is) are just a few of the guests who will grace this year’s convention. If you want to see if your favorite star will be in attendance, check out the guests page, here.
So come one, come all! Come in costume, come with kids, come alone, come with friends (or make some new ones) — New York Comic Con is for everyone. And while you’re at it, make sure you come on Seastreak. With us, you’ll be as pampered and important as any of Comic Con’s stars.
Sea you Soon!
