The Big Apple Con is hitting midtown this weekend, and with it comes a bevy of geek- friendly celebrities who you can meet and get a photo with, not to mention tons of comic books, toys and other ephemera for your purchasing needs.
The convention, held at Penn Plaza near Madison Square Garden, also features a number of panels, including in-depth discussions with the likes of some of the celeb guests and others about the craft and history of comics. And if you’re a cosplayer, or just someone who enjoys looking at the intricate costumes, you can check out a cosplay contest.
