I'm with you there about the Saturday panels but the Back to the Future panel was one of the best ones that I've ever seen.  Great dynamic and friendship with Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox.  I too had heard that Thursday might be the best day to go in terms of crowds.  Thinking of maybe doing Thursday, Friday, and Sunday next year.  Kind of on the fence for Saturday.

Yeah.  I may do Thursday, Friday next year.  Lately the Saturday panels have been spotlight stuff which I don't really care for and I'm finding a lot of the panels I really like have been on Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

Looking at their schedule for this past con, NYCC seems to have far fewer fan panels than SDCC. I am thinking about going next year...and really enjoy smaller fan panels. Seeking thoughts from those who have attended.

Fan panels are almost nonexistent anymore. 2021 had some really good ones, but I imagine that's because the major players sat out and they needed content.

For better or worse, NYCC is much better about spreading around the panels than SDCC.  Saturday has actually been the weakest dar panel wise the last 3 times

It just depends what you're into.  This year I did multiple panels Saturday, I'm not counting 2021 because there were companies sitting out due to Covid, but I think I was pretty busy in 2019 too.  For me, the day that is often weakest is Friday.  I've had several years where there wasn't a panel I was interested in until late in the afternoon.  I've also had several years where I did no panels on Sunday.

Curious, as they solicit fan panels each year.   ::)
It is 2024, and I am still asking...where's my flyin' car??!! @fannishmarcia

Oh, you know what? I'm misremembering. This year they had a couple of stages and the Pride Lounge and there were fan panels on those.

OMG we're back again   
New York Comic Con is back October 12-15, 2023 and we can't wait to see you again. But before we do, we have one crucial step!
We need you to confirm or update your personal details from your Fan Verification profile. If you actively rolled over your profile or created a new profile last year for 2022, you can update your info below or let it automatically roll over.
IMPORTANT: If you did not actively rollover or create a new profile in 2022, you must do this to access the presale! If choose not to confirm or update your info, YOUR FAN VER PROFILE WILL BE DELETED, AND YOU WILL LOSE YOUR ACCESS TO THE NYCC TICKET PRESALE. We're sorry for using shouty caps at you, but if this happens, you will need to create a new Fan Ver profile to buy tickets during the general on-sale.
We don't want you to miss out, so make sure to update your profile below!

I don’t think the sale will start until early May. I think the hotels will
be within the next couple of weeks

You have until May 5 to confirm Fan Verification, so I imagine the pre-sale will be the week after that. And hotelpocalypse is likely to be next week or the week after at the latest.

Excited to see NYCC sale dates!

I was hoping to go for VIP badges this year as bringing my partner for her first con so to make it easier for some panels but with the way they've doing it, having a VIP presale, I can't see there being many left come Popverse superfan sale (or any for the general) sale but will try for the VIP anyway and def going on normal badges!

I'm sure it's going to be an allotment for VIPs.

NYCC in a FB comment dud imply that VIP might not be available in the fan verification sale.

Also, liking the added VIP perks this year —photo and auto fast lanes, and VIP get to do the exhibitor reservations first, so maybe reserving Funko without the site crashing.

100% agree here, no way they all go in the pre-sale.
