Celebs, comic books, and games in store

August 26, 2012 by  

The opening day of the New York Comic Con is rapidly approaching and, with the convention being the largest comic con in the East Coast, residents from New York City and other nearby cities such as Jersey City and New Rochelle may expect to see entire rooms hosting a variety of games, shows, and special guest panels.

Guests of the convention will be able to participate in an array of activities such as contests, screenings, model-building, and concerts. Printing companies will probably work with the convention’s marketing department to produce detailed and informative brochures and flyers with their varying printing services.

Comic book guest appearances will be made by a multitude of celebrities as well as illustrators and writers, a few being Marvel’s Editor in Chief Axel Alonso and Uncanny X-Men artist Esad Ribic. Sean Astin, known for playing Sam Gamgee in the Lord of the Rings, will be making an appearance on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the convention, and Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter series, will be available on the same days. The special guests that are scheduled to appear at the convention have only become more exciting as the list has expanded. Other activities, such as a masquerade ball, game rooms, and tournaments will be available to attendees of the convention.

The New York Comic Con is scheduled to take place on October 11 – 14 at the Javits Center in New York City. Ticket prices and event information can be found at the New York Comic Con homepage.
