NYCC 2013 - Where Da Parties At?

Wondering where to hang out with your mob and your new found geek pals during NYCC?

Here are some places where you can get your groove on!

An "Adult Swim"/ "Toonami" meetup specially for fans on Thursday to kick off the geek-festive weekend!

Date: Oct 10, Thursday
Time: 7 PM
Venue: Junior's in Midtown

Red Dot Diva doesn't have many details about the event, but do check their FB event page, if you are interested in going!

It's not called The BIG NYCC Party for nothing.

Hosted by Image Comics and Multiversity, this year's event is the second one held by both companies to benefit the Hero Initiative.

The Hero Initiative is a charity whose objective is to give support to creators in need.

Many of Image's creators are expected to attend, including Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare (Rocket Girl), Kieron Gillen and Ryan Kelly (Three), Jim McCann (Mind the Gap), Ron Marz (Witchblade) and Tim Seeley (Revival). Red Dot Diva thinks this sounds like a fantastic night for fans and creators to hang out while donating to a good cause.

The details are as follows:

Date: Oct 11, Friday
Time: 8 PM to midnight
Venue: Houndstooth Pub, located on 8th Ave between 36th and 37th
Entrance: A suggested $10 donation to the Hero Initiative to get in. For the donation, you will automatically be entered into a raffle to win 1 copy of all of Image’s exclusives for NYCC 2013!

Do note that this is a a 21+ event.
