New York Comic Con has announced its guest lineup and I don’t even think “epic” is the word to use for how amazing this guest list is.

You don't have to be a fan of comics to appreciate some of the celebrities that will be making an appearance.

NYCC is taking place at the Javits Center in NYC on October 12, 2023, to October 15, 2023.

Every year, pop-culture fans gather at this convention center in Hell’s Kitchen to not only meet their favorite celebrities, but to cosplay (aka, “dress up” as their favorite character), shop the best vendors that sell comics, pop-culture memorabilia, and original work, sit through Q&A panels, and so much more.

But let’s be real, the main part of these types of conventions are the actual stars.

Fan Expo Philadelphia just took place in Philly and had a big “Back to the Future” reunion with Tom Wilson (“Biff”), Christopher Lloyd (“Doc Brown”), and the one and only, Michael J. Fox (“Marty McFly”).

Now, NYCC has announced two huge guests of honor, you might want to sign up now your tickets.

Chris Evans and Ewan McGregor will be making an appearance and you have a chance to meet them.

Chris Evans, known as “Captain America”, will be appearing Friday and Saturday of the show.

Ewan McGregor, known as young “Obi-Wan Kenobi”, will be appearing Thursday and Friday of the show.

You have the opportunity to get an autograph, a photo, and/or sit through their Q&A panels.

Whether you’re a Marvel fan or a Star Wars fan, make sure to keep up-to-date on tickets to the convention so you don’t miss out on meeting your favorite celebrity.

I cannot wait to attend this show since my favorite actor is part of this guest list.

Whether you know him as Dr. Frank N Furter from “Rocky Horror Picture Show”, or Pennywise from the original “IT”, or maybe just the creepy hotel guy in “Home Alone 2”, Tim Curry is a legendary star that you should add to your celebrity list.

He did have a stroke back in 2012, but that doesn’t stop him from meeting and greeting his fans. I met him back in 2016 and it was the first time I was left speechless.
