Special Edition: NYC is a comics-focused show. This year, they made the move to Pier 92/94 in NYC from the Javits’ North Pavilion (NYCC Artist Alley). Featuring amazing talent from Amy Reeder to David Mack and Scott Snyder to Brian Michael Bendis, SE: NYC caters to the core comic book fan. The show has a much more intimate feel where you can walk up to your favorite artist or writer and talk about their work.
Compared to 2014, attendance was up due to a few reasons, including the show not being over Father’s Day weekend and an uptick in people coming to buy NYCC tickets but then sticking around to experience the show.
