New York Comic Con is here again! October 13-16th at the Javits Center in New York. It's the largest east coast popular culture convention. Each year, it is growing in size and this year is no exception.
We have been attending each year and last year we recorded an episode of Doctor Who: Podshock live at the event to a standing room only audience with special guest Tony Lee of IDW Publishing (Doctor Who ongoing comic book series). You can listen to our live show from 2010 here: Doctor Who: Podshock 225. We would had done another live show this year at the event, but unfortunately, there isn't a Doctor Who guest there this year. Last year, Alien Entertainment brought over Daphne Ashbrook (Grace from the 1996 TV movie). Word is this year they are bringing Ian McNeice (Churchill) to their booth. You may recall, we interviewed McNeice earlier this year live on stage at Gallifrey One (see Doctor Who: Podshock 240.
Here is a little taste of New York Comic Con in this video from last year (2010):
