ReedPOP (PAX East, C2E2, Star Wars Celebration) recently announced a partnership with Oz Comic-Con in Australia which added five more shows into their portfolio.  One of which will be a spin-off second show from their annual NYCC pop-culture event. They’re calling it Special Edition: NYC and it’s currently scheduled to debut at the Javits Center in Manhattan on June 14 and June 15, and it’ll be focused purely on comic books.

“It’s really about creators, artists, dealers and some publishers,”  Global VP Lance Fensterman told Comic Book Resources. “We’re trying to keep it really pure to comics, [with] a little bit of kind of an indie bent to it. Just something for that pure comic fan, and something for the creator community.”  The two-day event will take place where NYCC’s Artist Alley has been at home for the last two years.

“We started as a pure comics event,” Fensterman said. “That’s what New York Comic Con was, and it’s grown and grown. We felt having something that was still consistently focused on and serving that core comic fan and community was true to our vision when we started this whole game.”

“Over the past two years, Oz Comic-Con has created first class pop culture experiences, acting as a stage for local and international creativity,” Rand Ratinac (Director of DCA Enterprises) stated in a release.  “Our partnership with ReedPOP elevates Oz Comic-Con within the competitive international market, truly putting Australia on the map for pop culture events and opening the door for remarkable opportunities that will carry on through to our attendees, supporters, guests, and exhibitors.”
