Talk about a show worth getting excited for! When Matt and I went to Special Edition: NYC last year, we had no idea what to expect. It was the first run for the comic-focused show that spun out of New York Comic Con, and it was being held in what we know to be NYCC's Artist Alley.
Well, the show ended up being an absolute blast, and out favortie thing about it was how creator-focused the show turned out to be. The atmospehre was very laid back, and fans got tpo spend some real quality time with their favorite comic creators.
Matt and I ended up getting some of our best interviews of the year there--Joe Kelly, Marguerite Bennett, James Tynion IV, Jamie S. Rich, Enrica Jang, Kurt Busiek and more.
So you can bet your bottom dollar we'll be heading back to New York for this year's show, which is going to be held at Pier 94, which is a really cool venue (you may remember we went to Wizard's Big Apple con there in 2009). We can't wait to see what ReedPOP has in store for the new location, and they have a very solid foundation to build on from last year.
So, head over to www.specialeditionnyc.com this Wednesday to get your tickets for the show, and let us know if you're going, because we'll see you there!
