Marvel announces plans for Special Edition NYC

by

Special Edition NYC kicks off this weekend, and Marvel has released its plans for the show.

Special Edition: NYC is an intimate event that is focused solely on the art, creation and culture of comic books. Special Edition: NYC is located in Javits Center North and will feature comic book creators, dealers and a limited number of panel discussions.
