Pre-New York Comic Con 2016: Economical Assassins

(note: No Type-Moon Weekly News Round Up
or All Points Bulletin this week.)


While the NYCC is clearly a media mix convention with everything from panels about the new Marvel Movies and Batman comics to Star Trek, Star Wars, and Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, there is still a good amount of anime and manga programming.

This year the big guests are Isuna Hasekura of Spice and Wolf fame and Yusei Matsui the manga-ka of Assassination Classroom. It is also worth mentioning that Yasuyuki Mimura will be at the Kodansha Comics Manga Panel. You have probably never heard of him but he is an editor for titles like Inuyashiki and Devils’ Line. All of this plus industry panels and screenings round-out the anime and manga content.

There will be a lot to see and do at New York Comic Con that isn’t anime and manga, obviously. While we could never hope to cover it all we will try to bring you the best anime and manga coverage we can while also giving you a look at the rest of the convention on the side.
