Got this idea from a guy I met at Wizard World this past weekend. This is a joke his friends used to play on him :) Wizard was ok. Not as great as I'd hoped, for it being a 3-day con. I was expecting it to be similar to NYCC, because the table cost almost as much, but there just wasn't as much traffic flow. Unfortunately many artists didn't do well and won't return next year. I was warned about this con, but I wanted to see for myself. At least I didn't lose money though.
Super excited that Wizard World NYC Experience starts tomorrow! It's going to be intense. But if I can handle NYCC, I can handle this :) Get a day pass for Fri, Sat, or Sun and see comic/tv stars, meet artists/creators/writers on the show floor and artists alley, see cool costumes, and most of all, get awesome new comics!
Some reasons why you should check out Wizard World NYC: As shown above, Stan Lee, Patrick Stewart, and Norman Reedus (from The Walking Dead) will be there! There's some wrestling guy in the picture too. I guess he's cool enough to be there. Wil Wheaton will be there too (he's made appearances on The Big Bang Theory :)
Wiz has some pretty cool programming going on too. Some that I think worth going to would be: INDEPENDENT PUBLISHING VS BIG HOUSE PUBLISHING, HIP-HOP & COMICS: CULTURES COMBINING, and MASTERING THE UNIVERSE WITH TOM COOK (he was an animator on She-Ra and He-Man!).
SHOW HOURS Friday, June 28, 2013 - 4pm - 9pm Saturday, June 29, 2013 - 10am - 7pm Sunday, June 30, 2013 - 10am - 5pm
LOCATION: Basketball City (Pier 36) 299 South St #36 New York, NY 10002
Take the F train to the East Broadway stop and walk towards the water. It's right on a Pier, so you can't miss it :P If you're driving, it's right off the FDR Drive.
And I'll be in Artist's Alley table B4!
Hope to see you there! This should be an exciting show. There are supposed to be thunderstorms this weekend, but don't let that deter you. It's inside, and even some programming they have outside will still happen "rain or shine."
