The guest list for New York Comic-Con is slowly being added to and we’re getting some promising appearances. It’s going to be a long 4 days, so you want to make your time worth it. The roster is a long one, and while I’m sure each guest is just as important as the next, there are definitely some that are going to be higher priority.


Some of these guests and their popularity will be more obvious than others, so be sure to set aside more time because there will be long lines ahead.


Guest of Honor – Freddie Prinze Jr.



Star Wars fans will recognize this name from Rebels, but the real ones know that Freddie Prinze Jr. played the OG himbo Fred Jones in the live-action Scooby-D00 movies.

Date: October 8 (Saturday) and October 9 (Sunday)

Location: TBD



Alyssa Wong

Marvel; Brian Wong/Xtra


Everyone, let’s all take a good minute and thank Alyssa Wong for being a part of the team that developed the Iron Fist that is actually of Asian descent.

Works: Iron FistExtreme CarnageStar Wars: Doctor Aphra

Date: October 7 (Friday), October 8 (Saturday), October 9 (Sunday)

Location: Artist Alley


Frank Miller

LEGENDARY. This is a must-see guest. Seriously, if you only have the time and/or energy to see one person, it has to be Frank Miller. We’re talking about the man who had a huge influence on the dark and brooding Dark Knight that we know to this very day through works such as Batman: Year One (1988) and Batman: The Dark Knight Rises (1986). Miller also created one of the most amazing Daredevil works to date — Born Again (1986) — a rumored outline for the doubly rumored Disney+ continuation of the Daredevil television series.

Works: BatmanDaredevilSin City

Date: October 8 (Saturday)

Location: Artist Alley


Greg Capullo


Kendall Whitehouse


Another Batman artist for the books. If you are a fan of dark characters, look no further. Not only did Capullo contribute the majority of his time to Batman issues, but he’s also well-known for his work on the Image Comics series Spawn (created by Todd McFarlane, best known for his work on The Amazing Spider-Man comics).

Works: BatmanDark NightsSpawn

Date: All days

Location: TBD


Mateo Lolli

Mateo Lolli


If you are a fan of the X-Men, Mateo Lolli is the artist for you. As of right now, the Italian artist is working on the X-Men Marauders series, but he is probably best known for his previous work on Deadpool runs.

Works: MaraudersDeadpool

Date: All days

Location: Artist Alley


Peach Momoko

Peach Momoko


Known for her unique anime-style take on classic Marvel Comics characters, this is definitely an artist you’ll want to visit if you’re looking to get some artwork that deviates from what we usually associate with classic American comic books. Momoko’s colorful, dynamic, often complex style is unlike anything we’ve seen in this space.

Works: Marvel’s Demon Days

Date: All days

Location: Artist Alley

R.L. Stine

Brandon Schullsman


R.U. kidding me? This man wrote the blueprint for all the adults who currently love the horror genre. The Stephen King for our small elementary and middle school minds! Even if you’re not a fan, I know for a fact that at least one of the Goosebumps covers is seared into your memory (it’s the puppet one, isn’t it?).

Works: Goosebumps

Date: All days

Tom Kenny

Tom Kenny has defined nearly every millennial’s childhood. I would be beyond annoyed if I had to explain to you why this voice acting legend is a must-see. He is SpongeBob and Ice King (from Adventure Time — in case you need to be reminded). Let me repeat, he is SpongeBob SquarePants. Enough said.

Works: SpongeBob SquarePants, Adventure TimeThe Powerpuff Girls

Date: All days

Rodger Bumpass



If this name isn’t familiar to you, let me give you his character name — Squidward Tentacles. You heard me, this is the voice behind the character that we once despised and now unfortunately relate to on way too many levels. If you’re already getting in line to meet Tom Kenny, you might as well make it a pair.

Works: Spongebob Squarepants

Date: All days

Location: Photo Ops/Autographing


Cosplayers: You need this. And noobs, if this is your first time at Comic-Con, consider this your crash course.
