New York Comic-Con celebrates popular culture in all of its forms such as movies, TV, sci-fi books, manga, anime, and of course, comics. The event, which is celebrating its 7th year at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, is the second largest of its type in the United States, behind San Diego Comic-Con.
