Soooo, odds are you've been hearing a lot about New York Comic Con lately-- and with so many A-list guests, both anime-related and not, you should have been –and so have I, so I've been getting my schedule for the convention ready as best as I can.
Those of you who have followed me in the past know the drill: this is the post where I tell you who all is at the convention...but not just to brag. I want YOU guys to tell me what YOU want to know! I can't always track down every guest, but I have plenty of interview requests shipped out, and I can often nudge my way over to peoples' booths and whatnot, so definitely leave your questions in the comments here. (I'm also going to pin the forum thread for you guys so it's easy to find-- the convention isn't for another week and a half, after all!)
So, here's the list!
- Bandai Entertainment
- CMX Manga
- Dark Horse
- Del Rey Manga
- Fanfare/Ponent Mon
- Square Enix
- VIZ Media
- Yen Press
