NYCC: Midtown Comics...

What would the New York Comic Con be with out Midtown Comics?  They are a staple vendor and the most well known Comic Shop in New York City with three locations right on Manhattan Island.  It's the only comic shop I know in NYC.

Midtown Comics will be at booth 1638 all weekend long and here is what they have to say about their plans for the show!

New York Comic Con is here! It’s one of the two greatest comic-cons in the U.S., and it’s one of the top five highest attended events in NYC! As the official retail sponsor for NYCC, we will once again have a huge booth offering everything you need for the ultimate con experience! Some of the highlights include our NYCC exclusive “Batman Arkham City” hat from New Era, a Midtown exclusive Ultimate Spider-Man symbol t-shirt, a bunch of cool creator signings, and of course, a HUGE selection of graphic novels at 20% off!
We'll update our blog with any schedule changes so please check out our NYCC blog post for the latest updates.

Extended hours at Midtown Comics in Times Square:
Our Times Square store is a 10 minute walk from the Javits Convention Center, so we’ll be open from 10:00AM to 10:00PM on Friday October 14th and Saturday October 15th, (at Times Square only).

If you're looking for great deals on graphic novels and trade paperbacks the Midtown Comics booth is for you! Save 20% off all graphic novels and trade paperbacks at our booth all weekend at the con! We’ll have a lot of hot books by many of the creators appearing at NYCC!

Win a chance to meet Frank Miller at the Midtown Comics booth! 15 lucky winners will be selected via three different raffles and will win a copy of Frank Miller's new book Holy Terror and get to have it signed by the man himself at the Midtown Comics NYCC booth on Saturday! Five tickets will be raffled on our Twitter page, five on our Facebook page, and five at the convention. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for more info and your chance to win!

Autograph Schedule:
5:00-6:00 -- Christos Gage & Rebekah Isaacs (Angel & Faith)

11:30-12:00 -- Batman Files Signing with writer Matthew Manning
2:00-3:00 -- Scott Snyder (Batman, Swamp Thing) & Tony Daniel (Detective Comics)
5:45-6:15 -- Frank Miller VIP Signing for Holy Terror. Only 15 lucky winners will attend, see contest above.

1:00-2:00 -- Francis Manapul (Flash)
3:00-4:00 -- Matt Fraction (Fear Itself, Casanova, Invincible Iron Man, Mighty Thor)

Oh and they also mentioned they still have tickets available.  Friday and Sunday are sold out at Midtown, so that leaves Saturday and 3 day tickets available.  If you still need tickets get them now!  Stores are selling out and prices are increasing to door price on the NYCC site.  I believe that increase is taking place on October 12th.  So get your tickets early!  Don't be like my friend last year and come out to the Javitz the day of and be heartbroken to have traveled and been unable to buy a ticket.  That did happen.  Tickets did sell out last year.  Do not wait.
