New York Comic Con is a little less than 6 months away and while that might seem like a long time to most people, it means crunch time for nerds. Second to San Diego Comic Con, this is the country’s largest comic book convention. That means it’s time to prepare and ready ourselves with a healthy spending budget (without proper planning, the merch can easily and instantly dry out your wallet), a cool costume (also a huge budget bummer), strong legs (prepare to stand for hours), and a solid speaker panel game plan.

 

NYCC recently released their 2022 ticket information to their email subscribers. We all know what it’s like to have too many email subscriptions so we’re going to save you the trouble and update you here.

 

Monday, May 2 — Metaverse Superfan Sale

The Return of the 4-Day Tickets (and the VIP Program)

This exciting news is mostly for those who have been to NYCC before. NYCC is bringing back the 4-Day ticket. On top of that, they’re relaunching the VIP program — which has supposedly been revamped with extra perks. With all of these announcements bound to attract more attendees (new and old) this year, health remains a huge priority.

Just like last year, NYCC will make sure to follow all necessary health procedures and will continue working closely with the people at the Javits Center, New York City, and the CDC. Further details about NYCC’s coronavirus policy will be shared over the summer so that you may all plan accordingly.

 

More information about NYCC will be released soon and we will be sure to keep you updated!
