IDW @ NYCC’14: Exclusives

New York Comic Con is an event that I’ve been wanting to attend for the last two years, but haven’t been able to find an opportunity until now. There’s always something that comes up and throws a kink in the plans. From all I’ve heard, it is also a much better con-experience than San Diego Comic Con since it is much more focused on comics, unlike its bigger cousin which has become dominated in recent times by genre television shows and by Hollywood. Besides, SDCC is a much tougher Con to get into in the first place, which is why I’d love to attend NYCC more than anything else.

Living the Con experience through news that filters out of it and about it, IDW Publishing yesterday released info on its Con exclusives. In recent years Con exclusives have become a bigger and bigger thing, especially at the larger Cons so that the publishers are able to attract more foot-traffic and what not. Te exclusives run the gamut of everything, and IDW is also offering some really cool and awesome covers as well, and I like the look of them If I could, I would totally get some of them. Anyway, here’s what’s IDW offering this year at New York Comic Con 2014.
