New York Comic Con 2015: Full Main Stage Panel Schedule


Good news: New York Comic Con 2015 is this week! The Javits Center will soon be overrun (and if you’ve been there on a Saturday over the last few years, you know that really is the proper term for it) by over 100,000 fans of all things related to comics and pop culture.

More from Conventions And Shows

While there’s plenty to see at NYCC over the course of the four days of the show, the biggest panels are happening on the Main Stage, also known as 1-D. This year, that venue will see multiple TV panels, including some for Marvel and DC super hero shows and the return of The X-Files, the first American appearance by Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto, and much more.

Naturally, that means the demand for seats at these sessions will be huge. The Main Stage has its own queue lines and special procedures, which you can read about on the NYCC website. The wristband process is nice, because it means you can actually wait for a while right at the beginning of your day and then proceed to go check out other stuff before your panel comes up instead of waiting in line all day (ahem, Comic-Con International).

To help you plan for the Main Stage events, we figured we’d gather all of the panel info in one place so you know ahead of time what queue might be worth seeking out each morning. Without further ado …
