Alright, comic-book fans and comic movie fans New York Comic-Con 2019 is right around the corner and there’s a lot of news to be told. We’ve decided to make the lives of all NYCC 2019 goers a little easier by bringing all the news that we could find directly to you. Luckily enough, this information is not difficult to find for anyone and you can find it all on newyorkcomiccon.com. Within this flood of information will be where and when this event will be held, where tickets can be bought and how much the tickets are, who will be a guest for the convention (artists, actors/actresses, etc.), and what the panels at the event will showcase. So without further ado, let the flood gates open.
Where and When
NYCC 2019 main campus will be at the Javits Center located at 655 West 34th Street in NYC. This is where you will find Will Call/Registration, the Show Floor, Artist Alley, select panels, signings, and much more.
The Secondary Campus for NYCC 2019 includes the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden, Hammerstein Ballroom at the Manhattan Center, the Hudson Mercantile, Annexes, and more.
NYCC 2019 will start October 3rd and run through October 6th, 2019.
Before purchasing a ticket/badge fans must go to the NYCC website and “fan verify” in order to purchase a ticket/badge. This “fan verify” is a tactic to stop ticket scalpers from ordering multiple tickets and then reselling them at a higher price.
Unfortunately, tickets have gone on sale already and have sold out for Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Sunday: Kids Passes, and 4-Day Passes. However, you can purchase these passes through Lyte; a secondary market ticket seller that has teamed with NYCC runners. You can access the Lyte store through the NYCC website’s ticket section.
Thursday passes are still for sale on the website for $55.00, so get them while they still last.
Kids under the age of 5 can enter the event for free, but anyone above 6 years old will be charged. Also, NYCC passes bought on or before September 15th will be mailed to you via USPS. Any NYCC tickets bought after that date, the buyer will have to bring the email verification to Will Call at the Javits Center the day they go to the convention.
SIDE NOTE: If an NYCC 2019 ticket is lost, you will be fully charged for a replacement pass.
This is the main reason as to why people attend NYCC, or any convention for that matter. We all want to meet the people that take part in creating the characters/stories that we all love and enjoy. Guests can be comic artists, manga artists, actors, actresses, directors, writers, and much more.
