The employees at Midtown Comics (Times Sq) had no idea about a show.

One of the managers knew about it but you would think there would be a sign promoting the show or selling tickets with May just around the corner.

The guest list look good though.

Cheers!

Guest lineup looks pretty good for this show.  I will most likely make the trip over the river for this show.

I finally got an email from Midtown Comics about the show.  I may try to stop by Midtown to get tix in person to avoid the mail order process.  

Pier 36 is located at the newly revamped South Street Seaport in downtown Manhattan (near Wall St., Brooklyn Bridge).  

 

btw - looking at the exhibitor list, there are about 30 different "street / graphitti" artists, the most famous being kidrobot.  It looks like they are trying to emulate NYCC's "The Block" section of the show where they had DJ's and street artists selling limited edition toys and artwork.  Midtown is promoting the show as a Toy and Comic show.  People expecting traditional toys like vintage action figures and game boards will be disappointed. 

Cheers!
