Select retailers to sell NYCC tickets beginning Thursday
New York Comic Con hopefuls who missed out on passes when they went on sale June 27 will get another chance beginning Thursday — as long as they live near one of the convention’s official retailers.
Organizer ReePop is rolling out a limited number of tickets for the sold-out event, starting Thursday at Midtown Comics’ Downtown location in New York City. After that, they’ll also be available while supplies last at select retailers in New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Illinois and Massachusetts. The full list of comic stores can be found here.
Some of those stores will also have cards for the Oct. 3-12 New York Super Week, a “week-long immersive and inclusive experience,” featuring concerts, live radio shows and podcasts, game shows and more, all leading up to New York Comic Con. Among those activities, ReedPop has announced, is a special edition of NPR’s Ask Me Another, featuring Neil Gaiman as the VIP (Very Important Puzzler).
Benefits of the New York Super Week Card include priority seating at events, drink specials and merchandise discounts. New York Comic Con will be held Oct. 9-12 at the Javits Center in New York City.
