Specifically, the Season 6 premiere of The Walking Dead is coming to MSG as one of the marquee events of the second annual New York Super Week, the collection of pop culture events that leads up to New York Comic Con. While the con itself takes place from October 8-11, New York Super Week kicks things off even earlier on October 5.

The idea is to give NYC residents and people arriving in town early even more fun stuff to do, with shows, panels and contests that would appeal to NYCC attendees but are outside the scope of the con itself.

“New York Super Week was created because quite frankly, New York Comic Con had outgrown itself and there is so much demand out there for unique fan experiences,” Lance Fensterman, Senior Global Vice President ReedPOP, said in a press release. “We’ve learned some things from last year and we’re working on making things even greater for our fans.”

This year’s New York Super Week schedule includes:

There’s also that TWD premiere event I mentioned, with several ways to win tickets. Head here to find out how to win two tickets to watch the first episode of Season 6 at Madison Square Garden on Friday, October 9.
