We just wrapped up our biggest event of the year and most popular one here at Nerd News Today, NY Toy Fair, but we are already looking ahead to what’s next in the convention scene.
Coming up in March, the Big Apple Comic Con returns to NYC for another stellar year, and I can announce to you that Nerd News Today will not only be attending, but we will be going live throughout the event!
We did our first ever live streams during Toy Fair, and it was a lot of fun interacting with fans and viewers around the globe. We learned a lot about streaming, and decided we want to give it another go at Mike Carbo’s well-known comic event.
The Big Apple Comic Con started in 1996 in – believe it or not – a church basement, as a last minute savior to another con that was abruptly cancelled. From there, it grew and thrived, and has become quite the destination for comic lovers in New York City.
We will be live streaming on Youtube to give you a taste of what this convention is like, and perhaps our Facebook and Instagram pages this time as well for a bit. Who knows what we will see and who we will run into! And best of all, now that you know we are coming, you can be on the lookout to say hi to us!
Of course, the real reason you would be coming to BACC is not just to see us. You really want to come to meet some of the celebs in attendance, including William Shatner – who will be making his only NYC appearance at this event.
Mike Colter, star of Netflix’s “Luke Cage” will also be in the house, joined by Brent Spiner, Kathleen Turner, David Gerrold, John O’ Hurley, and more.
Comic creator guests attending BACC 2019 include Frank Cho, Jim Steranko, Jae Lee, Mark Texeira, Ramona Fradon, Sean Chen, and many other notable writers and artists.
You can check out the full guest list at this link here.
There will also be a full gamut of exhibitors, including CGC Comics and CBCS Comics to grade books, along with other independent creators, vendors and comic stores from all over the East Coast.
Big Apple Comic Con takes place March 9-10 in midtown Manhattan at the The Penn Plaza Pavilion inside the Pennsylvania Hotel. Tickets are available at this link here.
