New York Comic-Con 2021 – A Review

Hey, it’s your girl Jamie – it’s been a minute!

I was fortunate enough to attend New York Comic-Con at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.

After almost a year and a half of not attending any big events, I was a little apprehensive about attending NYCC this year. However, with New York Comic-Con operating at a reduced capacity and taking all necessary precautions to make sure everyone who was attending felt safe, I felt a little better and was ready to get my nerd on.

This year’s New York Comic-Con featured spotlight guests like John Cena (WWE, The Suicide Squad, HBO Max’s Peacemaker), David Harbour (Stranger Things, Marvel’s Black Widow), Hayden Christensen (Star Wars, Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi), George Takei (Star Trek), Jurnee Smolett (Lovecraft Country) and more.
Panels and screenings included FXX’s What We Do In The Shadows, Paramount+ Star Trek: Prodigy Premiere Screening & Panel, Amazon Prime’s The Boys premiere screening and panel, The George Lucas Talk Show, plus the NYCC Championships of Cosplay competition, and a charity art auction.

New York Comic-Con is a shopper’s dream. Whatever your interest is, they have it.
Funko Pops? Yup.
T-shirts? Absolutely.
You need to buy a lightsaber because you left yours at home? They got you.

In addition to the impressive show floor, the artist alley is a great place to meet up with your favorite comic artists and support them by purchasing art prints, key chains, stickers, and more.
(Personally, I spent most of my time — and money — there!)

I attended the convention on Saturday (where I dressed up as Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty if he were captured by the Time Variance Authority from Loki [which if you watched the ScreenJunkie’s Honest Trailer for Loki, you’d see so many similarities between the two series]) and Sunday (where I was joined with my favorite convention buddy, Christina Kay), and we got a photo with David Harbour! He was on the other side of a clear sheet of Plexiglas, but it still counts!

New York Comic-Con 2022 will take place October 6th – 9th.
