When is New York Comic Con 2018

New York Comic Con 2018 kicked off on Thursday, October 4, 2018 with a keynote speech from author and comic writer author Marjorie Liu. It's set to continue with four days of panels, events, and appearances. NYCC 2018 ends on October 7, 2018. To plan ahead, here’s the full NYCC 2018 panel schedule.

Where is New York Comic Con 2018?

No, this isn’t a trick question. Well, duh, it’s in New York – but it’s actually spread out across a few venues. The convention itself can be found at the Javits Center, but there’s also panels and events taking place at Madison Square Garden and the Hammerstein Ballroom to account for. So, if you’re planning on going, be warned that you may have to do some travelling.

How to watch New York Comic Con 2018

This year, your best bet is to get hooked up to the SyFy Wire stream. Their NYCC 2018 streams cover a wide range of events and panels, from a talk with The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman, a chinwag about the Watchmen TV show with one of the comic’s co-creators, and there’s even the likes of a big Hellboy reveal on the Saturday.

Elsewhere, Marvel will have a streaming presence with its Marvel Live show that’ll run throughout the entirety of the four-day event.

Don’t forget to be glued to the likes of the Daredevil Twitter account, too. Official social media channels are likely to be a goldmine throughout the week. My advice? Bookmark The Walking Dead Twitter account, as well as the Doctor Who Twitter page, and the Star Trek Discovery Twitter feed.

I'm the Entertainment Writer here at GamesRadar+, focusing on news, features, and interviews with some of the biggest names in film and TV. On-site, you'll find me marveling at Marvel and providing analysis and room temperature takes on the newest films, Star Wars and, of course, anime. Outside of GR, I love getting lost in a good 100-hour JRPG, Warzone, and kicking back on the (virtual) field with Football Manager. My work has also been featured in OPM, FourFourTwo, and Game Revolution.
