A Preliminary NYCC 2015 Schedule

Last year’s NYCC plans bore laughably little resemblance to what I actually did, due to the long lines for absolutely everything. Let’s see what I’m interested in, regardless of whether or not I’m able to attend it. And they remind everyone they do not clear rooms.

Thursday, October 8:
11:00 – 12:15 We Need More Diverse Comics (1A05)
1:45 – 2:45 The 7 Archetypes of Comics Shops (1B03)
4:00 – 5:00 Attack on Titan panel (1A18)
5:15 – 6:15 Sir Terry Pratchett (1A18)
5:15 – 6:15 LGBT in Comics (1A21)
6:45 – 7:45 Crunchyroll Industry Panel (1A24)
8:00 – 9:00 Fangirls Lead the Way (1B03)

Yes, obvious conflict there – not sure how packed Titans and Pratchett will be, and I also really want to see the LGBT panel. The comic shop one is simply as I get my manga at a great local shop in New Haven, so am interested to see if manga comes up. And there’s two good break points to tour the DR and meet people. You’ll notice I’m not doing the Kishimoto panel – I just never got into Naruto, and going to a Main Stage panel requires a lot of hoop jumping.

Friday, October 9:
11:00 – 12:00 Star Wars: A Galaxy of Fandom (1A24)
12:15 – 1:15 Viz Media Panel (1A24)
12:30 – 1:30 Gay Manga Panel (1A05)
2:45 – 3:45 Banned Comics! (1B03)
4:15 – 5:15 Archie Comics (1A05)
5:30 – 6:30 Vertical Comics (1A05)

Not sure I’ll get into Star Wars, but Viz will also be packed, so… Conflict with the Gay Manga panel, sigh. Archie will also be hard to get into, if past years are a good example – 1A05 does not look like a very large room. A surprisingly early night!

Saturday, October 10:
11:00 – 12:00 Yen Press (1B03)
12:15 – 1:15 Kodansha Comics (1A01)
1:45 – 2:45 Clueless 20th Anniversary (1A10)
2:45 – 3:45 Women in Geek Media (1A01)
4:15 – 5:15 Food and Comics (1A05)
7:45 – 9:15 Doctor Who Fan Screening (Empire Room)

I see Yen’s in the tiny room again. Going from Yen straight to Kodansha will be tough if there’s a line.

Sunday, October 11:
12:00 – 1:00 Heroic Counter-narratives (1A05)
2:30 – 3:30 Culturally Queer (1A24)

There’s a Classic Who panel as well, but it’s at 4pm, and there’s just no way, I’ll be fried. In any case, that’s a lot of stuff I want to see. I hope to be able to meet everyone there!
