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!
