NYCC 2018: IDW panels and signings revealed

With the New York flavor of Comic Con rapidly approaching, IDW has taken the wraps off of it’s full listing of planned events.

What you’d expect

IDW, for all the financial issues that it’s apparently having as a company, will have a full lineup of talent on hand for NYCC. That’s a great thing to see, since it pretty much looks like business as usual.

The company will be inhabiting booth #1844 on the floor of the Javits convention center next week, and it’s there that you’ll find most of the signings slate. There are some events that will be taking place outside of the convention all together, so make sure you pay attention when you make your plans.

Of course, the panels will be held in private rooms on premises. But you knew that.

All of the particulars are listed below.
