New York Comic Con: Help Spider-Man celebrate his birthday

October 13th, 2012 by bash Comments

For those of you attending New York Comic Con this weekend be sure to help Marvel celebrate the birthday of Spider-Man.

On Sunday (October 13), Marvel is pulling out all the stops with everyone being asked to sign the larger than life (6’x 8’) Spider-Man Birthday Card, produced by Hallmark, in an attempt to shatter the Guinness World Record for ‘Most Contributions to a Greeting Card’.

“Spider-Man is one of the most popular and special characters in the world, so we wanted to make sure we celebrated his birthday in a big way ” said Dan Buckley, Publisher & President of the Print, Animation & Digital Divisions, Marvel Worldwide, Inc.

“From working with the New York City Mayor’s Office for a very special announcement, to partnering with our friends at Hallmark Cards to make history, we’re ensuring that New York Comic Con is the place for fans of all ages to celebrate Spider-Man.”

The card will be on display in the Marvel booth (#1838) at different times over the weekend, both for contributions and for photo ops, so make sure you check in frequently so you don’t miss out!

Also, in Room 1E07, check out the Amazing Spider-Man & Beyond panel on Sunday, where the minds behind your Spider-Man comics come together to give you all the news about the wall-crawler.

Then why don’t you attend the IGN Theatre for an interactive event like nothing you’ve ever seen before! The cast of Spider-Man: Turn off The Dark, the hit Broadway show, arrives at New York Comic Con for a panel—nay, a performance!—that involves you, fans of all-ages.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
