New York Comic-Con is upon us and as usual, fandom is buzzing over what will be announced at the world’s biggest comic book, entertainment and pop culture celebration. Fans are anticipating many TV and film announcements, as well as what the future will hold for the world of comic books. More comic book-related properties will arrive on TV and in movie theaters than ever in 2015. All these factors should make NYCC 2015 one to remember, and here are the events and announcements we’re most excited for.
Clueless 20th Anniversary Panel (Saturday, October 10th | 1:45-2:45 | 1A10)
Ever since I saw Clueless as a kid, I’ve wanted to be 5’10” like Cindy Crawford. To my eternal dismay, I fall two inches short. HOWEVER, I can achieve other Clueless-related dreams, such as attending this panel. I didn’t even know Clueless fell within the scope of NYCC, but as someone who watches that movie at least once a week, I am beyond thrills that these two passions of mine are meeting.
Disabled or Mislabeled?: Graphic Novels and Comics About Disabilities (Thursday, October 8th | 2:45-3:45 | 1A01)

A Force for Good: The Powerful Partnership Between Mental Health & Pop Culture (Sunday, October 11th | 3:45-4:45 | 1A24)
I wanted to highlight a few of the important amazing-looking panels representation and the community that makes up fan culture. Every single one of us is important and deserves recognition and care, and I’ll be attending these panels both seeking and offering support to and from fellow fans. I will also be looking to speak with fans after panels for their thoughts so we can feature them on MoviefiedNYC!
