New York Comic Con and Anime Festival
With geek culture having established an undeniable influence over mainstream entertainment, Comic Con is always a much anticipated event. This annual fan convention at the Javits Center is dedicated to comics, graphic novels, anime, manga, video games, toys, movies and television and will feature writers and illustrators, along with celebrities like Sigourney Weaver and Gillian Anderson. Panels, screenings and the ability to have your comic book signed by your hero will all be on tap. The New York Anime Festival alliance is still in effect, too, so expect to see cosplayers (costumed participants dressed like fictional characters). They'll provide plenty to gawk at, even if you don't hit the fest's many booths, panels and screenings.
