New York Comic Con
If you can’t tell your Green Lanterns from your Green Hornets, this is not the event for you. But you should know that comic books are now mainstream – a legitimate pop art form. If you would like to stay in touch with some of the hottest entertainment trends for the past few years, head down to the Javits Center on October 10th to witness the costumed masses attending New York Comic Con. New York Comic Con attracted over 77,000 attendees in 2009. Keynote speakers will, of course, include Stan Lee, the co-creator of dozens of Marvel Comics characters. Though there will be screenings of upcoming films, the convention in Gotham tends to skew more toward books. For tickets and additional information, visit newyorkcomiccon.com.
