6:00 pmBACC Silver Anniversary ClosesBig Apple Comic Con Silver Anniversary Show Closes: Thank-you for coming, we love you allAll LocationsBACC
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU ALL FOR A WONDERFUL SHOWTHE BIG APPLE COMIC CON SILVER ANNIVERSARY WAS REALLY GREAT

This has been a difficult time for all of us. BACC had to postpone a show scheduled for April 4-5 2020 just 2 weeks before the date. Our fans and exhibitors and artists stuck with us, and we were finally able to have the show we had planned. We had a great time, and hope everyone of you had a great time. We cannot thank all of you enough for coming, and for making this return an enormous success.

The Gallery of Great Collectible Comics rocked the show, our guests were just fabulous, but our fans are divine.

Our next show will be March 26th 2022 and we are already working to make it better than ever. Stay tuned.

We love you all and we love being the NYC community's true pop culture and comics convention.
