This is my FIFTH year at New York Comic Con and I wouldn’t miss it for anything. I love the Artists Alley that darn near feels like its own separate comic con thanks to the impressive work of Mike Negin, and the cosplayers are simply amazing! I look forward all year to this pilgrimage and the opportunity to connect with East Coast fans.
I am a Featured Guest at New York Comic Con this year and I will be at Artist Alley Booth D9 all 4 days! Click here to add me to your show planner. The New York Comic Con show planner is really nifty, by the way.
FREE Convention Exclusive Mini-Print!
I have a new FREE convention exclusive mini-print for Facebook and Twitter followers!
Just show me that you follow me on Twitter or like my Facebook page to claim yours! And I’ll still have a limited supply of the ever popular Wonder Woman Invisible Jet mini-prints, Flash Fastest Man Alive mini-prints, Disco Nightwing mini-prints, and Batman buttons free for followers if you would rather pick up one of those. Remember, these are convention-exclusive freebies. The only way to get one of these items to find me at a convention!
Christopher Jones’ NYCC 2016 Schedule
In addition to visiting me at my booth, you can also find me at the following events!
Thursday, October 6
Comics, Graphic Novels and the Reluctant Reader
Graphic novels have been called a “gateway drug to literacy,” but schools still have large groups of students who don’t know how to read them. Join experts in the field of education and comics, including Solution Squad creator and veteran middle school teacher Jim McClain as he guides you step-by-step through a program that will help you to bring even the most reluctant reader into the fold. Attendees will also receive a free digital copy of Solution Squad #1 and more goodies that they can use in their library and classroom.
Panelists: Jim McClain, Supergirl Smiles, Janet Lee, Theresa Dyson, Christopher Jones
Location: Room 1A05

Sketches & Art Prints
I will be doing commission sketches during New York Comic Con, but I expect my sketch list to fill up FAST, so if you’re hoping to get a sketch from me, try to stop by my Artist Alley table as early as possible. If you would like to send me your NYCC sketch request ahead of time, putting you first on my list on Thursday, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject, “NYCC SKETCH REQUEST”. Please include the days you will be at the con, and your phone number so I can text you when the sketch is completed.
All of my convention sketches are black ink on 9×12″ bristol. I will also draw on sketch covers and in sketchbooks, and on …other things… by request. Payment due when you pick up the completed sketch.
My New York Comic Con 2016 Sketch Rates are…
- Full Figure: $100 for the first character + $80 for each additional character
- Head Sketch (shoulders & up): $60 or $40 with a current student ID
- + $5 for Doctor Who: The Third Doctor Sketch cover provided by me
I will also have all of my prints available during New York Comic Con, at the usual reduced convention prices:
- 11×17″ Color Prints: $20 each or 3 for $50
- 8.5″x11″ Color Prints: $10 each
- 8.5″x11″ Black & White Prints: $5 each
You can see my entire selection of prints in My Etsy Store. I have two new classic Doctor Who prints since last year’s New York Comic Con:
Again, you can find a full selection of my prints, including Young Justice and more Doctor Who prints, on my Etsy store.
Joining me once again at the con will be
booth babe cosplay personality Mr. J! He’s generally happy to take photos with anybody and may even have something special for kids – what a clown!
Because con food is expensive and I know a lot of my fans are at the con on a budget, I’ll have granola bars available at my table for anyone who asks for one. That’s right – free, healthy(ish) snacks! And definitely NOT engineered by the Reach or Lexcorp, if you were concerned. While supplies last.
I will also again have a cosplay repair kit with sewing stuff, different sorts of tape, contact cement, and other misc. cosplay repair items. Just ask if you need to use it.
And, just to cover a few other questions I often get on Twitter:
- Autographs are always free and I’ll sign anything you bring me. (Check out my guide to asking for signatures and drawings at conventions!)
- I do not charge for photos and I am happy to take a photo with anyone who asks!
- I’m happy to do interviews, podcasts, snippets, goofy stuff, and whatever any day but Sunday, but the earlier you can drop by, the better!
- I will draw any cannon character ship kissing if asked. I will draw any two characters together doing non-romantic/sexual things, regardless of whether it’s cannon or not.
I think that about wraps up my New York Comic Con post. Whew! I really am looking forward to seeing you all again this weekend! Come say hello! Marvel at my latest T-Shirt. Sing a duet with me. Get some free candy. Buy some art. Artist Alley table D9! See you there!
