NYCC ’17: Fans Can Take Pictures With Pros For ComiXology Trading Cards

by Hannah Means Shannon

ComiXology is going to wow fans at New York Comic Con this week by offering them the chance to have their photo taken at the comiXology booth either singly, or posing with a comic creator, and to walk away with those images on a trading card as well as with a digital copy online.

The comic pros who will be taking part in this incentive include Scott Snyder, Marjorie Liu, Sanford Greene, Jeremy Whitley, Katie Cook, Dustin Nguyen and more.

These Comic Book All Star Trading Cards are part of ComiXology’s wider NYCC 2017 plans, which include sponsoring Artist Alley celebrating with a 10th Anniversary Party on Friday, October 6th, open to all.

ComiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger says:

We’ve had incredible success with our Comic Book All Stars Trading Cards. Now we’re putting the focus on fans to show our appreciation by making them a part of our Comic Book All Stars Trading Cards. Everyone loves a selfie, especially one with glamorous lighting, right? I encourage fans to stop by our trading card photo booth to take their photo and pose with the talented people who craft the stories we love.

On Friday October 6th, comiXology invites all fans and professionals to come celebrate at its 10th Anniversary Party. The party kicks off at 9pm at Tir na nÓg, 315 West 39th St., New York, NY 10018 and goes on until midnight with an open bar and appetizers (first come first served).

ComiXology will be exhibiting at booth AAB1 in comiXology sponsored Artists Alley, found in it’s new location, Hall 1E. In addition, comiXology will be hosting three panels at this year’s convention with fun giveaways at each panel.  The company will be announcing the schedule for creator photo opps via comiXology’s social media and Tumblr closer to the convention.

You may recall that the Comic Book All Stars Collectible Trading Cards were made popular with Comic Book All Stars Series 1, a set of 26 cards that were given away in July 2016 at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Series 2, a set of 31 cards given away in October 2016 at New York Comic-Con, and Series 3, a set of 35 cards given away in July 2017 at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
