New York Comic Con

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  8. Whoopi Goldberg Went To NYCC And Talked To Everyone But Us [VIDEO]

    And That's Terrible

    Ok, I'm exaggerating but Whoopi Goldberg visited New York Comic Con last weekend and talked with tons of people we know! Too bad we didn't know she'd be there or we could have saved her a spot in our "Representation in Geek Media" panel room. Perhaps she could have taken a few tips from our creator panel considering she was at NYCC trying to gauge interest in her comic book idea. The video gives a really positive look at geek culture and the event as a whole, which is nice to see, but hit us up next time, Whoopie. The Mary Sue ladies would love to sit down with The View crew and talk about women and pop-culture! Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?
