While New York Comic Con didn’t take place in-person in 2020, instead taking place entirely online, there looks to be rumblings of a 2021 happening taking place at the Javits Center in Manhattan, mixing on site activities with an online element.
Manhattan’s Javits Center could be buzzing with nerd activity as early as October. According to The Hollywood Reporter, ReedPop is now in the planning stages for an in-person New York Comic Con event between Oct. 7-10. “Certain dealers and companies were asked in recent weeks by ReedPop, the organizer of NYCC, about their interest in doing an in-person event,” writes the trade outlet.
Specific details (i.e., panels, attendance capacity, etc.) are still hazy, but it seems like there will be a virtual component running in conjunction with the physical convention. The annual con went totally virtual last fall
If the show moves ahead – and the official Twitter feed shows the dates of 7 – 10th October 2021 – rest assured Fantha Tracks will be there covering all the action and more.
