  4. The Percentage of Female NYCC Attendees Has Risen Over 60% In Three Years

    Its packed to the GILLS with --wait, no. Sorry.

    New York Comic Con has only been around since 2006, but each year it gets exponentially bigger. Last year's convention saw 133,000 fans in attendance, as well as 2,500 press members and 9,200 trade professionals. This year, 3-day passes sold out only an hour after they were made available on the ReedPOP site. And if the numbers are any indication, a lot of those passes were probably bought by women.

  5. Deep Breaths, Ticket-Buying Nerds: New York Comic Con Knows Their Website Is Borked

    We're going to get through this together.

    Convention ticket buying is always a stressful time, particularly when it comes to San Diego Comic Con. But now it looks like New York Comic Con is aiming to gray just as many hairs as its West Coast compatriot: many buyers are reporting problems with the website, including long wait times and error messages. But it's okay! They're on the case as we speak, and have news for people trying to get their 4-day fix.

  6. Pros & Cons: HeroesCon Promotes A Harassment Policy While Special Edition: NYC Takes Issue With Fan Attire

    We'll get there. I swear we'll get there.

    More and more, fans are asking conventions to step up when it comes to a clear and easily found harassment policy. So how nice is it to hear a convention create and promote one without a call to arms? That's North Carolina's HeroesCon, who recently called attention to their new policy. However, not all is well on the convention circuit as a story out of Special Edition: NYC proves there's always work to be done.

  7. San Diego Comic-Con Responds To Fan Petition Asking For A Formal Harassment Policy

    Consider the Following

    Last year, we were compelled to look into Comic-Con International in San Diego's harassment policy after a gallery was posted online by a member of the press who took photos of attendees' posteriors without their knowledge. It was something we assumed, as the largest convention in North America, would be front and center on their website. Turned out, it wasn't on their website at all but a small paragraph in their 200+ program guide handed out at the event. While harassment at conventions was an important topic to a lot of fans before this incident, it has gotten even more attention throughout the year. That brings us to a petition put together by Geeks for CONsent asking for a "formal anti- harassment policy" and more, but a representative from the convention says they already have what the petition is asking for. We took a closer look.
