New York Comic Con 2017 - Elisa's Saturday & Sunday Panel Picks


With New York Comic Con just eight days away, I've been sifting through schedule and trying to chose what I'm most looking forward to. Now let me tell you, there are so many interesting panels and so much overlap! Plus, with the panels spread across midtown west, let's just say it's going to be an interesting and possibly incredibly healthy (with all the running) NYCC.

Here are my Saturday and Sunday picks, though I'm still struggling with scheduling! I added even more conflicts especially since Saturday is basically every panel stacked on one another; the decisions are ultimately up to you!
And make sure you check out the schedule on your own because there is some seriously great programming this year!
