Dear New York Comic Con, There might be such a thing as too many good guests.

February 4, 2009

New York Comic Con comes but once a year and this time it is rather early. This time around the guest list is off the charts of awesome! And the amount of things to do is near mind-boggling. I am so very happy to be attending this deal as press. With so much going on this will atleast ensure us some access to the things we most want to see and tell our readers about. Granted this blog specialize in anime, but we are fans of many geeky hobbies! So look forward to coverage from all the different elements brought together by New York Comic Con.

New York Comic Con says it is a comic convention and graphic artists are it’s specialty but it deals with every type geek related hobby including geek literature, films, TV shows, video games, and most every other type of game as well. I think there is so much to see and do that we are going to have to bring in secret agent Kohaku just to have someone go to all the events that we would like to cover as well as ask questions at all the panels where questions need to be asked. I am a little surprised that they seem to have absolutely no anime related guests but I think it is a sign that the NYAF is finally coming into it’s own so they see no reason do get any anime related guests. There also seem be be a good deal of professional panels that I am curious to attend now that I have the power of the press.

The tentative schedule is as follows: (Pro tip: As far as I can tell this schedule is total poppycock because they keep adding awesome things every few seconds. Last minute changes are not only possible they are probable.)
