NYCC 2018: Sunday Highlights
Every convention has a Sunday and it typically signals the end. Never fear though, because Sundays at New York Comic Con still have a lot to offer. While you’ll probably still contend with crowds, you can take a break in one of these awesome panels.
Be sure to check out Artist’s Alley before you leave, too. Give some love to creators out there doing the hustle.

John Bowman, Josh Dallad, Joel De La Fuente, and Jason Lewis will be joining entertainment weekly for a lively discussion about the work they’re currently doing. This would be a good one for anyone with acting interests who might want to pick their brains (though I’m surprised this panel is lacking women). This is free for anyone with a Sunday NYCC badge.

12:00 PM – 1:00 PM @ Hammerstein Ballroom
The boys are back in town! Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, and Paul Simms are bringing back their socially awkward vampires. Come catch a sneak peak screening followed by a no doubt hilarious Q&A from the crazy minds behind it.
