The second Special Edition: NYC comics-only show from ReedPop runs June 6-7 at Pier 94, and ReedPOP has just announced the first guests: Amy Reeder, Chris Claremont, Alex Maleev, Mark Texeira, Fred Van Lente, Greg Pak, Kevin Maguire and Marguerite Bennett.
Tickets for the event go on sale Wednesday, February 4 (THAT”S TODAY) at 12:00 PM EST.
Unlike it’s loud, tumultuous and pulse-pounding big sister New York Comic-Con, SE:NYC is planned as a more mellow comics focused event with more Special Guests from the pages of mainstream, alternative, indie, international and web comics.
“We launched Special Edition: NYC last year, because we knew fans were clamoring for a more exclusive event aimed specifically at comic books since New York Comic Con has grown into the massive success that it has,” said Lance Fensterman, Global Senior Vice President of ReedPOP in a statement “and we felt that it answered this call. Fans and artists were able to interact and the overall environment fostered such a strong community of comic book fans. We’re excited to see what this year brings in a new location with an even better lineup.”
