Sure, there are other entertainment and comic events, but there’s only one that takes place in Gotham City—New York Comic Con. You and a friend are headed to the east coast’s largest pop culture convention, and it’s all going down in the comic book, publishing, media and licensing capital of the world. You’ll score tickets to the convention (all four days!), you’ll watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens scored live by the New York Philharmonic (amazing), you’ll cut the lines at Mark Hamill’s and Felicity Jones’ autograph signings (no Jedi mind tricks required), and you’ll even attend an exclusive panel featuring the one and only Mark Hamill himself! This’ll be a jam-packed week in New York, so get out your walking shoes, charge your camera and take Gotham City by storm. Flights and hotel included.
