NYCC 2024 Announcement Poster High-Res.png

It’s never too early to start thinking about New York Comic Con. And ReedPOP has revealed a bunch of information about this year’s show, including the presale date for tickets: Wednesday, June 26. This follows presales for Popverse Superfans on Wednesday, June 5 and fans who rolled over their Fan Verification accounts on Sunday, June 9. If you haven’t signed up for Popverse Superfans, you can do so at thepopverse.com.

This year’s con will be held October 17-20 at  the Javits Center, a bit later than usual. While getting a ticket is not quite as arduous as the SDCC process, you’ll definitely want to circle the on-sale date, as tickets sell out very quickly. 

And as we noted last year, don’t sleep on hotels either! 

A preliminary guest list for NYCC has also been released, including many media stars, and comics notables:  Josh Brolin (everything)Jodie Whittaker (Doctor WhoAttack the Block); House of the Dragon stars Matt Smith and Tom Glynn CarneyMarisa Tomei (Spider-Man: No Way HomeMy Cousin Vinny); Clerks duo Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes; cast members from fan-favorite films and TV series Starship TroopersShameless, and Futurama; All Elite Wrestling wrestler Samoa Joe; YouTube stars JackSepticEyeLaurenZside, and the hosts of Drawfee; and comic and literary legends including Tegan Quin and Sara QuinAmanda Conner, James Tynion IV, Tomi Adeyemi, Jeff Lemire, Grady Hendrix, Jimmy Palmiotti, R.A. Salvatore, Scott Snyder, Olivie Blake, Art Adams, and Chip Zdarsky.

Several media partners were also announced: Abrams, Bandai Namco Entertainment, Crunchyroll, Capcom, eBay, Funko, FX, Mad Cave Studios, Penguin RandomHouse, Scholastic, VIZ, and more.
