As we told you earlier, Superweek has given way to NYCC Presents as an umbrella brand for offsite events during New York ComicCon week. With NYCC getting bigger and bigger, spreading the fun throughout the city had become more of a priority. This year, NYCC Presents will run from October 3-9 offering dozens of live podcasts, gaming challenges, screenings, concerts, dance parties and doubtless organized Pokemon Go expeditions. All will be separately ticketed events, and a couple of them are already sold out. Here’s the first list; to get tickets, head over here. Please note if you sdon’t have a NYCC badge you can still get into all of these events.

“NYCC Presents is the result of two amazing years of immersive and unique Fan events around New York City through New York Super Week. The demand for more content has extended beyond New York Comic Con and this is an opportunity to provide additional programming to Fans that might not have been able to get Tickets for NYCC,” said Lance Fensterman, Senior Global Vice President at ReedPOP. “We want to give our Fans the greatest experience possible and give them as much content as we can, while also providing opportunities to see other parts of the city.”
