Including panels with celebrity and artist guests, the Big Apple Comic Con also features two main event Costume Contests, one each day!

:  For over 20 years Big Apple Conventions has presented the most outrageously fun comic and popular culture convention in New York City. Founded and owned by comic book maven Michael “Mike Carbo” Carbonaro in 1995, the show started at the auditorium of St Paul’s Church on 10th Ave. in Manhattan.  For over a decade the show has been at the Pennsylvania Hotel on 33rd St. and 7th Ave. across from Madison Square Garden.
