New York Comic Con is the East Coast's biggest and most exciting popular culture convention. The Show Floor plays host to the latest and greatest in comics, graphic novels, anime, manga, video games, toys, movies, and television. Panels and autograph sessions give fans a chance to interact with their favorite creators. Screening rooms feature sneak peeks at films and television shows months before they hit either big or small screens. With dedicated professional hours, New York Comic Con is a market place, bringing together the major players in the entertainment industry.
