Music and comics have always had a connection. With the rise in great comic book movies and television series, this symbiotic relationship has grown closer and closer. Many of us music nerds can also be classified as comic book nerds. Amazing art hits all our senses.
Next week in New York City, the Big Apple Comic Con is coming for all of us to dive into the fantasy world and connect with other like-minded people all there to have a great time. The 2-day convention will be held on March 9-10, 2019.
For over 20 years Big Apple Conventions has presented the most outrageously fun comic and popular culture convention in New York City. Founded and owned by comic book maven Michael “Mike Carbo” Carbonaro in 1995, the show started at the auditorium of St Paul’s Church on 10th Ave. in Manhattan. For the past 12 years, Big Apple Comic Con has been held at the Pennsylvania Hotel on 33rd St. and 7th Ave. right across from Madison Square Garden.
The premier boutique comic and popular culture show will be chock full of celebrities, comic dealers, collectors, cosplayers, and tons of folks out for a great time sharing their love for comics and the whole industry that surrounds them.
Celebrity guests include William Shatner (Star Trek), Brent Spiner (Star Trek The Next Gen), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Mary Wilson (Supremes), Chris Rankin (Harry Potter), and award-winning comic book artist Frank Cho.
Through the central theme of comic books, the convention features a large range of pop culture elements including science fiction/fantasy, film/television, cosplay, animation, anime, manga, toys, horror, collectible card games, video games, web comics, and fantasy novels.
There will be panels, seminars, and workshops with professionals from various fields. The Big Apple Comic Con also features previews of upcoming films and the main event costume contest that has been a fan favorite. Costumes and cosplay have been an integral and vital part of the 20-year heritage.
