New York Comic Con, yadda yadda, just one month away, mumble mumble, shaping up to be one of the biggest conventions yet seen in the Big Apple, et cetera et cetera (The Javits Centre, Thursday 3rd – Sunday 6th October 2019). ReedPOP are once again pulling out all the stops to make NYCC 2019 truly a show-stopping show, especially seeing as they are bringing to fans a couple of attractions and studios that took a breather during San Diego Comic-Con a month or so ago.
Warner Bros. was the most noticeable of the absentees, and while they brought a couple of off-sites and their signature mega-booth to the Exhibition Floor, their decision to not present in Hall H ended up being one of the biggest shocks of the summer. However, for New York, WB is back with a bit of a bang, and it starts when it comes to their Home Entertainment division presenting panels and screenings throughout the weekend.
Courtesy of their press statement, here’s what they have in mind:
