New York Comic Con 2015 Ticket Sales Begin May 13


It may only be spring, but it’s not too early to begin preparing for one of the biggest events of the fall. That would be New York Comic Con 2015, which takes place October 8-11 at the Javits Center in New York City. Organizer ReedPOP announced plans for ticket sales today, revealing three different ways to get tickets for the show:

  1. Online, beginning Wednesday, May 13 at noon Eastern. You’ll want to be on the NYCC website for that. Probably well-rested so your refresh finger doesn’t get tired.
  2. In person at Special Edition: NYC 2015, New York Comic Con’s smaller, more comics-focused cousin. That takes place on June 6-7 at Pier 94, and some tickets will be reserved to go on sale specifically at that event.
  3. At a special event later this summer at Midtown Comics, the only retail partner offering tickets to NYCC 2015. Dates and details for this opportunity will be announced at a later time.

Tickets start at $40 for a one-day pass for Thursday (other days are $50 each), with three-day (Friday through Sunday) passes for $75 and four-day passes for $105. Two different levels of VIP packages will also be available at $215 and $525, respectively, giving holders the ability to skip the queue lines in the morning, access to a special VIP lounge and other perks.

ReedPOP is also pushing the idea of New York Super Week again, looking to expand the offerings to a wider array of venues with all kinds of events. It’s probably easier to just let me let them explain it:

"Now in its second year, New York Super Week is the ultimate celebration of super fandom bringing the passion and excitement of New York Comic Con all across the city with special events and exclusive engagements that tap into every aspect of fan life – comic books, music, gaming, film, television, and so much more. It will be connected directly with New York Comic Con through the New York Super Week Card providing cardholders with special discounts at select retailers, bars, restaurants and attractions throughout the city. Participating partners for 2015 range from Midtown Comics and Barnes and Noble, to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, Rock Bar, Brooklyn Brewery, Discovery Times Square and Madame Tussauds New York."

Right, so, the upshot of all that is that the New York Super Week Card comes along with all four-day NYCC passes, with the option to add it on for $10 for everyone else.

Got all that? Bam Smack Pow is looking forward to covering New York Comic Con for the second straight year, so we hope to see you there!
