we paid 20 bucks a pop just to be there on saturday. if you have never gone to a comic book convention ever in life then the big apple con is a great starter convention. we started going to big apple comics convention when they first started back when it was held in 1996 in the basement of St. George’s Church in Manhattan by Michael Carbonaro
The convention is known for its eclectic variety of guests, including many celebrities of comic books, classic TV, movies, animation, pro wrestling, and other forms of pop culture.

Romero, Neal Adams, Peter Mayhew, David Prowse, Bill Plympton, Roddy Piper, and many more. It also holds panel discussions and a costume contest hosted by “Captain Zorikh.”
This year has been the year of heroes …….. tv show that is! so actress hayden panettiere the cheerleader from heroes was on hand to take flicks and sign pic, if you spent 30 dollars to get it.
