NYCC ’17: Titan Comics’ Exclusive Variant Covers And Show Schedule

by Oliver MacNamee
Fighting American #1 NYCC’17 Variant by Andie Tong

Titan Comics are certainly making their presence felt at this year’s NYCC with a handful of variant covers for titles such as their Fighting American relaunch and Wolfenstein comic, as well as a decent set of panels across the four days event.

Here are some of the highlights to look out for, or sign up for now by following the links provided. My eye would be on The Death of Stalin screening (well, exclusive clips at least) on October 5th and the chance to quiz comedy genius Armando Iannucci.

But, I’m not there, so that’s one extra place for anyone canny enough to sign up in advance. Take a look at the schedule below and start planning your NYCC ’17 weekend. Saturday seems to be the day to be a Doctor Who fan:
