The road to NYCC 2012 just got more exciting and Midtown Comics is helping to build up that hype. Today they held an event in front of their Times Square store to unveil the the all new New York Comic Con 2012 Camaro. Everyone got to take a picture with it but most people was there for a chance to win 3 day tickets to NYCC. About 100 people showed up and only 6 people was chosen by raffle to when the NYCC tickets but they gave away other raffle prizes too like a Iron Man poster and T-Shirts. Everyone in line got buttons, temporary tattoos and even a comic. Nothing too special but its something for waiting in line.
Overall the event latest about an hour, It was a fun turn out and I enjoy going to these little things for the experience. I was hoping to win NYCC tickets but I’m gonna be a 4-day pass anyway. Still would have been nice to pass it along to a friend. I was told that there will be 2 other events like this. There are 3 Midtown comics locations in NYC so in September we should see another event like this at the Downtown and Grand Central locations. There is a good chance I will attend those events too mostly for fun. I will have part 3 of my Road to NYCC video posted hopefully by tomorrow and it will feature video from this event.As always keep checking the blog daily for NYC events/ meetups.
