Marvel heads to NYC Special Edition with panel lineup

New York’s newest mega-show is getting a marvelous dose of panel presentations from Marvel Comics.

As comic con’s go, Special Edition is a little bit different in this modern age in that there’s really no movie or gaming talk on deck for the event. Everything is comic book related in one way or another, with the majority of the program being taken up by the medium that started the con craze- comics.

So with that in mind, most of the major publishers will be on hand and accounted for and Marvel Comics is no different. The super-pub will have a quartet of panels ready for the show as they chat up everything from the ‘New Young Guns’ to the 75th anniversary of the brand. Here’s your lineup of what you can expect, complete with times and dates:
