Kickstarter at New York Comic Con

We're excited to announce that Kickstarter will be exhibiting at New York Comic Con for the first time this year! 

All weekend we'll be hosting an amazing lineup of comic-book artists and writers who've kickstarted some pretty spectacular projects, from single-issue comics and graphic novels to anthologies, art books, and performance art. Stop by our booth in Artist Alley (N407) to pick up some beautiful artwork and books, get autographs and sketches from your favorite artists, and see some of the best up-and-coming comics creators emerging from the Kickstarter universe. We've also designed these fun sketchbooks that we'll be handing out all weekend at our booth:

Check out our panel and full exhibitor schedule below and come celebrate comics with us!

      Very cool! Just visited NYC ComicCon yesterday, will be back today. Passed through the Kickstarter table didn't realize it was different comic book artists depending on what time you visit (just getting my feet wet yesterday ComicCon can be overwhelming)!

      Do you think you'll be having a kickstarter table at C2E2 in 2013?
