Lance Fensterman has announced that the two-day convention that focused on comic book creators, publishers, retailers and fans; Special Edition: NYC will instead be refocused on October’s New York Comic Con.
“I really want to get New York Comic-Con all over the city” . “We’ve been chipping away at that, with some success. Being in Hammerstein Ballroom and programming content there, great. Getting some of the NYC Super Week events out there. We really want to take a big step forward in kind of growing outside of the Javits Center, because that’s the only place we can grow. But really taking that event much more city-wide is a big goal.”
This year’s NYCC is scheduled for October 6-9; New York Super Week events begin on October 3.
