[LINK]Special Edition NYC Starts Today!

ReedPOP's Special Edition: NYC returns this weekend for a second year of focused celebration of comic books, and the all associated forms of drawn art and illustration, separate from the kind of screen media that often seems to dominate pop culture. This is a true comic-con, reborn alongside the pop culture con explosion that seems to have devoured the traditional comic cons of decades past. And this new type of show doubles down on its hardcore focus on comics, taking place in New York City, the birthplace of the medium and still its center.

On its official site, Special Edition: NYC is described as "the place to meet your favorite comic book heroes and get exclusive access to special guests from the pages of mainstream, alternative, indie, international and web comics. At Special Edition: NYC you will have the opportunity to collect the latest comics, buy the hard to find back issues and add original art to your collection. Special Edition: NYC is a pure celebration of comic book culture created specifically for die-hard comic book fans, creators and publishers!"

This year's show starts off with a Marvel panel that promises to focus on the new Star Wars titles. With Star Wars recently returned to Marvel, it has already been blowing the now-officially canon continuity up with profoundly character-altering developments in the Original Trilogy timeline. It will be interesting for fans to hear what Marvel has to say about it all in the run up to the new Sequel Film and it should be a chance for attendees to provide some feedback as well.

There's also a Star Wars fan meetup set to take place at Special Edition: NYC today. This should be a big chance for new and long-time Star Wars fans to meet up for the first time and begin to come together for the phase of Star Wars history as anticipation builds for the release of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" this December.

This second installment of Special Edition: NYC is taking place at a new venue. Pier 94, on Manhattan's West Side is located at 711 12th Avenue, which is at 55th Street, across the West Side Highway. It's easily accessible by public transportation. Visit www.specialeditionnyc.com for full information on the venue and ticketing, as well as scheduling, programming, and more.

Row M will be there, so check back throughout the weekend, unless we're already going to be seeing you there!

[LINK]Marvel Comics' Star Wars Rocks the Continuity Again in Issue #6

The latest issue of Marvel's new Star Wars series is out today. Issue #6 is already creating quite a stir among readers for a plot development that changes one of the classic characters' backgrounds and has some speculating it's all to lay groundwork for the plotline of December's epic 7th Star Wars film, "The Force Awakens"

Variant cover collectors and action figure fans alike may also want to pick up the latest action figure variant of issue #6, featuring R2-D2 in action figure form as portrayed by artist John Tyler Christopher.
