Posted by at 6:44 am on October 13, 2014


ReedPOP, the organizers behind New York Comic Con, sold passes to 151,000 people for the event at the Javits Center this weekend, making it bigger than San Diego’s historic convention by about 21,000 attendees. San Diego’s attendance has been capped at 130,000 for years now.

What may have been the biggest help York Comic Con to be come the biggest is the decision to make Thursday an official, full con day this year — something CSan Diego has done for years.

Now Publishers, movie studios, TV networks and much of the mainstream press and the general public still mostly consider San Diego Comic-Con to be the Con! So do the Comic-Con International’s organizers which have become very protective of the “Comic-Con” name, suing Salt Lake Comic Con over its use of the term.

With the rumors about Comic-Con International moving to another city — possibly Los Angeles — have been swirling for quite a while, and the failure of a planned expansion to the San Diego convention center has bolstered those rumors, could help NYCC grow more in the eyes of the press and fans very soon.
