New York Comic Con (NYCC) has today announced its first major round of comic guest appearances at this year’s show which will take place at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City, October 8 – 10, 2010. Convention officials note that while the final NYCC guest list will span the pop culture universe, including authors, writers, film actors and directors, by far the largest contingent of guest appearances will be from the world of comics. A few of the many guests who have been revealed in today’s announcement include: Adam Hughes, Steve McNiven, Steve Epting, Bob Layton and Greg Pak.
Japanese girl rock band Puffy AmiYumi will be performing at the Far East To East Showcase (FETES) during New York Comic Con. The performance is happening Sunday, October 10, 2010, and the convention runs October 8-10, 2010 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in Manhattan. The band became famous in the US when Cartoon Network created an original cartoon staring them, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, which ran for three seasons. It eventually became one of the most watched cartoons in the world, and has been broadcast in 110 different countries.
