NYCC: The Sunday Panels and Screenings

Sunday at NYCC. It’s a little more laid back than Saturday. Expect to see a lot of empty Artist Alley tables, as pros take their time getting to the con while working off hangovers from the industry parties the night before. Sunday is kids day at NYCC, which means that while the show floor won’t be as packed as it is on Saturday, you can still expect a big crowd, this time with the added bonus of screaming and crying kids. Maybe it would be a good idea to sit back and relax at a panel. Here are Sunday’s highlights!

10:00 AM – 11:00 AM – Conan Spotlight with Jason Mamoa, Stephen Lang and Rose McGowan

Go to the panel  and then check out my review of Conan the Barbarian here.
10:30 AM – 11:00 AM – Wand Dueling for Kids

If you have kids, there’s at least a 100% chance they love Harry Potter. Bring them to the Hasbro stage so that can learn dueling the Hogwarts way. Just be worried if they yell “Avada Kedavra” at you next time you tell them to clean their room.

11:00 AM – 12:30 PM – IFC’s Portlandia and the Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret

Portlandia is hilarious. I don’t know anything about The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, but Portlandia is hilarious. Plus, Seth Meyers and Fred Armisen will be here.

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM – Geek Parenting: Raising Your Kid in Our Own Geeky Image

In case you can’t make this panel, here is some quick advice. Show your kids the original trilogy. Deny the prequels ever happened.

12:45 PM – 1:45 PM – Spotlight on Robert Kirkman 

Robert Kirkman was great on his episode of the Nerdist podcast a few months ago. This should be a lot of fun.

1:15 PM – 2:15 PM – Spotlight on Chris Claremont and Paul Levitz

Your inner child from 1985 REALLY wants you to go to this panel.

2:00 PM – 3:30 PM – Level Up World Premiere Screening

This Cartoon Network original movie looks like it could be fun. It’s about three high school gamers who open up a portal to a video game world. Wait a minute, wasn’t that premise of Captain N?

2:45 PM – 3:45 PM – DC ALL ACCESS: Meet the Publishers

Jim Lee and Dan DiDio talking about the New 52. Now that we’re a month and a half into the New 52, it should be interesting to see their plans for finishing out the year.

3:30 PM – 4:30 PM – X-Men Regenesis

X-Men Schism was awesome and I’m really looking forward to Wolverine and the X-Men.

That’s it for Sunday! Be sure to check out the panels for Thursday, Friday and Saturday too! And don’t forget to check out this year’s NYCC Con Exclusives Highlights!
