Spider-Man Superman Spider-Gwen NYCC

Hey Mighty Midtowners! As you likely know by now, the enormous and oh-so-exciting New York Comic Con 2015 is almost here! From October 8th-11th, the Javits Center will be filled with a sea of fans – each one anxious to see what kind of things they can purchase and thoroughly excited to attend panels. Obviously, one mandatory stop is OUR booth! We’re located at #2036 and we’ll have 20% OFF all comics and graphic novels, and some VERY cool exclusives. Pretty awesome, right? Touring the floor is always good fun, but if you’ve ever been to NYCC before, you know it’s important to plan ahead! So, we here at Midtown Comics want to make sure you’re prepared for all that NYCC will have to offer! There’s of course PLENTY to check out, but we’ve found 10 panels that we think are very deserving of your time. After you’ve read our suggestions, chime in with your NYCC schedule in the comments – you just may motivate someone else to attend a panel!

Batman Comics

He is vengeance! He is the night! He is… well, you know who he is! This Saturday (Sept 26th) is Batman day, so you can bet that means Midtown Comics is going to celebrate the Dark Knight in a big way! Not only do we have dozens and dozens of awesome collectibles, graphic novels, and back issues for you to check out in our three stores, but we’re also giving away a free Batman comic to every customer – while supplies last, of course! Look for a FREE copy of Batman Endgame Special Edition #1, on Batman day, simply by asking at the counter at any Midtown Comics location, or by ordering it online! Stop by any of our three locations (Times Square, Grand Central, Downtown) this Saturday to pick it up! Here’s the official solicitation for the FREE comic:

“BATMAN: ENDGAME SPECIAL EDITION #1 is a 40-page comic that reprints the lead story from BATMAN #35, written by Scott Snyder, with art and cover by Greg Capullo and Danny Miki! In addition, this special issue features a brand-new eight page story that leads into BATMAN & ROBIN ETERNAL, the new weekly series set to begin in October!  This story is by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV, with a script by Tynion and art by Tony S. Daniel”

Batman Day Comic

If you haven’t jumped into Batman’s New 52 run yet, this is the perfect time to give it a shot, and it won’t even cost you a penny! Doesn’t get much better than that, does it? Writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo’s Batman series has consistently topped the charts and it has received month after month of overwhelmingly positive reviews. From the thrilling opening arc which introduced the Court of Owls, to the twisted stories with Joker, this is a series you need to check out. For those who have already read BATMAN #35, how could you possibly resist the BATMAN & ROBIN ETERNAL preview? Having Tony S. Daniel’s art alone should sell you on it! Seriously, you won’t want to miss it.
