With thousands of geeks invading New York City for New York Comic Con, there are plenty of other comic-themed events planned around town this weekend.
Here's a look at a few geeky festivities you don't need a NYCC badge to get into:
Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples, Sina Grace, Justin Jordan, and Tradd Moore are set to appear at Image Comics/Multiversity’s Party on Friday night at Houndstooth Pub.
Stan Lee has attended so many Comic-cons in recent years, it was only a matter of time before he started his own.
Last year the comics icon launched Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo which welcomed 35,000 people, the largest comic convention debut ever.
This weekend the con returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center for its second year. Along with Lee, other special guests will include Elvira, Kevin Smith, Lou Ferrigno, Felicia Day, Thomas Jane, and Linda Blair.
New York Comic Con kicks off today at the Javits Center in New York City, but if you think it's too late to get tickets, think again.
This year's special guests at NYCC, which runs through Sunday, include comic legend Stan Lee, SNL's Seth Meyers, and director Kevin Smith. The 3-day schedule is also packed with lots of panels, screenings, costume contests, autograph signings and comics vendors.
Last week, the final schedule was released for the 2009 Comic-Con International, taking place in San Diego next week, sending fans who still hadn't bought their tickets into a frenzy.
The mayhem is for good reason. This year's celeb-filled schedule includes a panel with the stars of Twilight on Thursday, July 23rd, a peek at the upcoming movies Sherlock Holmes and A Nightmare on Elm Street on Friday, July 24th, and several TV panels with the casts of Fringe, Chuck, Heroes and more on Saturday, July 25th.
Comic-Con has of course been sold out for weeks, but fans who procrastinated still have one more chance to see their favorite stars at the convention. For the first time ever, Comic-Con is selling tickets on Ebay, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. So now you can bid away, but beware of scalpers. There is a unique bar code on all of the tickets sold by Comic-Con and you won't get in with any ticket that doesn't have it.
You can also follow Comic-Con on Twitter for updates on any possible last minute ticket sales or changes in the con's schedule.
