New York Comic Con Will Happen Twice This Year…Sort Of



ReedPOP — PAX East, Star Wars Celebration — has partnered with Australia’s Oz Comic-Con. Said Rand Ratinac, director of DCA Enterprises:

“Our partnership with ReedPOP elevates Oz Comic-Con within the competitive international market, truly putting Australia on the map for pop culture events and opening the door for remarkable opportunities that will carry on through to our attendees, supporters, guests, and exhibitors.”

Before NYCC happens this year, a “spin-off” convention will happen first and it will focus solely on comics. The event, called “Special Edition: NYC,” will be held at the Javits Center in Manhattan from June 14-15. Those who have attended NYCC will know the center as the home to Artists’ Alley.

NYCC 2014 is slated for October 9-12.
