Details of Special Edition and the Ticket Luck value
Anyone who loves comic books, graphic arts, illustration or cartooning will find Special Edition: NYC, godsend. The event is the newest comic book festival and is held every year for two days at the place of origin of comics – New York City! That's right; NYC is the capital of the world when it comes to comic books publishing, licensing and media. Therefore, it is only fair that an event purely on comics should be held in this city. The festival features living legends and rising stars of the comic world and is the ultimate place to meet all the famous comic book heroes. Fans buying Special Edition tickets to attend the event get an exclusive chance to access all their favorite guests and artists from mainstream, indie, alternative, web and international comics.
And that's not all, at Special Edition: NYC, fans also have the chance to buy as many comics as they want, from latest to hard-to-find issues of their favorite works. There is also a special segment Gaimova + Arcana Host Club presents Geek Out: Special Edition After Party. It features several exciting games for the fans and a few anime screenings. The event is nothing short of a comic books culture celebration, designed especially for the die-hard fans of comic books of all ages, the publishers and the creators. It features creators and dealers of comic books and also has a few panel discussions.
Special Edition: NYC can best be described as an intimate event with the focus on culture and creation of comic books. Not to be confused with a subsidiary of New York Comic Con, Special Edition: NYC is an independent event, unique in its kind. It is the biggest pop culture convention of comics after NYCC on the East Coast; featuring all the latest from the world of comics, anime, graphic novels, manga, action figures, toys, video games and movies. The global Vice President of ReedPOP, Lance Fensterman has declared the event a “pure comic-focused show” as compared to a more dynamic and wide-ranged NYCC. In fact, part of the idea of creating an event like Special Edition: NYC came from the criticism that the major comic book conventions have lost their essence by taking the focus away from comic books.
Special Edition: NYC is a presentation of ReedPOP; a company which is also credited for organizing events such as the very famous New York Comic Con, C2E2, Stars Wars Celebration, Penny Arcade Expos and UFC Fan Expo. ReedPOP is devoted to bringing exclusive events, acquiring new shows and promoting pop culture throughout the world by producing events that gives a dynamic and personal experience to fans and consumers.
This comic books convention is held at the Javits Center North which has also been the location of the Artist Alley at the NYCC for two previous years. The venue can hold almost 15,000 fans. The choice of this venue was inspired by the NYCC's Artist Alley which offered a unique experience with high ceilings and natural light; an experience different from the bustling main convention floor.
Special Edition: NYC is a dream come true for all comic book lovers. It is an intimate event since the crowd is smaller than in events like NYCC. It's a place where the hardcore comic books fans can meet and greet their much-loved comic books creators and socialize with fellow comic lovers. Another special feature about the event is its party-like environment due to the presence of a DJ and rapper who fills the hall with grooves of nerdcore hip hop and remixes of the popular comic themes. Fans buy Special Edition tickets in great numbers as the attendance number increases with each passing year.
