The New York Comic Con has been getting bigger and bigger each year, and this October, it’s expanding to four days: Thursday, October 13 to Sunday, October 16. The convention says that while the movie is an expansion, it’ll allow the show to “better manage and limit crowds” on each individual day.
In the past, the first part of Friday at NYCC wasn’t open to the public, only professionals and exhibitors — now Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be open to all, while Thursday will be open for “academic programming” beginning at noon, with the floor open to professionals and for a San Diego-style “preview night” from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. There will be 10,000 four-day passes sold, starting at noon eastern time on Feb. 7 on NewYorkComicCon.com.
