We finally feel fully rested from this summer's San Diego Comic-Con — that nonstop tsunami of geekery galore — and now we're about to do it all over again. Oh, well, let's brew up some coffee, stuff some reporter's notebooks in our back pockets and get this done!
New York Comic Con kicks off Friday and will run through Sunday. In between those days is a packed schedule of celeb appearances, comic book sneak peeks and much more — and MTV News will be at the center of it all.
From our usual perch in a skybox above the convention hall at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, we'll be hosting a rotating cast of Hollywood talent, studio execs and comic book creators. And the extravaganza starts even before the Con opens its doors.
On Thursday night (October 7), we'll be covering the launch of the "True Blood" comic series, bringing you the inside scoop about your favorite HBO vampires. Check out MTV News' Splash Page for the latest news on that event, as well as blanket coverage of the Con itself.
Friday brings us the stars and director of "Saw 3D," Seth Green ("Robot Chicken") and the writers of comics like "Jonah Hex" and "Superman for All Seasons." The next day, we'll be chatting with Danny McBride and David Gordon Green ("Your Highness"); Adrien Brody, Marvel Entertainment creative chief Joe Quesada, Eric Bana ("Hanna"); and Morgan Spurlock. Sunday brings us the legendary Stan Lee and the writers of comics like "Ultimate X-Men" and "Green Lantern."
On Sunday afternoon, we'll be bringing you a very special presentation: " 'Unbreakable': Ten Years Later With M. Night Shyamalan." Starting at 12:45 p.m. in the IGN Theater, the director will be sitting down with our own Josh Horowitz for an anniversary retrospective of this groundbreaking comic book movie. You really won't want to miss this exclusive one-time event as the director takes fans inside the film with never-before-heard stories and special surprises.
Keep it locked to MTV Movies and Splash Page throughout the weekend for everything you need to know about New York Comic Con 2010.
