It’s the final day of New York Comic-Con, but if you thought we’re packing it in early, think again! Today, the “Usual Gang of Idiots” from MAD Magazine take the stage with their infamous “Mad About MAD” panel. Expect plenty of hijinks and hilarity, and maybe a song or two. Also, don’t miss the “DC Comics – All Access” panel featuring Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, Heath Corson, Brenden Fletcher, Babs Tarr, Annie Wu and more. Oh, and you don’t want to the show to end before you’ve had a chance to grab one of our exclusive NYCC variant covers.
There’s no other word to describe Saturday at NYCC other than MASSIVE! The DC Entertainment booth is packed with enthusiastic fans taking photos with our green screen, checking out the amazing Batman v Superman costumes and props on display and examining the newest products from DC Collectibles. Plus, we have two unbelievable panels on tap including “Heroes to the Core” with John Romita, Jr., Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, David Walker and more, and “Batman: The Bat Universe” featuring Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, James Tynion IV, Tom King, Tim Seeley, Amy Chu and Peter J. Tomasi.
For a guy who keeps plenty busy at night, Batman sure has a busy day ahead here at the Javits Center. It all starts with the once-in-a-lifetime “The Dark Knight 30th Anniversary” panel, which celebrates Frank Miller’s iconic, influential DARK KNIGHT RETURNS along with its two sequels. After that, current Bat-scribe Scott Snyder gets a special NYCC spotlight panel. Then this evening, attendees will get their first look at the next Batman animated movie, Batman: Bad Blood, with a can’t-miss panel featuring the voice of Batman, Jason O’Mara.
New York Comic-Con has begun and the atmosphere is electric. (Or maybe that’s just the free WiFi provided by LexCorp.) Fans are flocking to the DC Entertainment booth to get a glimpse at the three amazing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice costumes that are on display, and to get their comics signed and their sketchbooks sketched by some of their favorite DC and Vertigo writers and artists. And speaking of Vertigo, their panel is tonight. Wonder what might be revealed there…
