Things To Look Forward To At NYCC 2020 (Part 1)


New York Comic Con is also going fully virtual this 2020, and fans can catch all of the awesome panels over at the NYCC YouTube channel on Oct. 8-11. Titled “New York Comic Con Metaverse”, this year’s NYCC already has its first batch of panel lineups. These are just some of the ones we’re excited for the most:


  1.  All about Hulu


Hulu will be introducing audiences to their upcoming horror series, Helstrom, as the cast talks about bringing this comic to the small screen. The series will debut on October 16 with all ten episodes front and center. The streaming service will also offer a behind-the-scenes look at another horror series titled Monsterland. Based on Nathan Ballingrud’s “North American Lake Monsters” short stories, the show will premiere all eight episodes on October 2nd on Hulu.

Hulu’s really knocking it out of the park with an exciting first look at Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. adult animated series. Creators Patton Oswalt and Jordan Blum are joined by the cast members Aimee Garcia, Ben Schwartz, and Melissa Fumero to talk about the show. For those who aren’t too familiar with the character, M.O.D.O.K. actually stands for Mental/Mobile/Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing…so there.


2.  A walk down memory lane


The NYCC Metaverse leaves a lot of room for nostalgia with a Lost Anniversary Fan Q&A! Moderated by Josh Horowitz, the panel will feature Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse as they answer burning questions from the fans. This one’s definitely not one to be missed, especially since the show still has so many unanswered questions we’ve all lost countless hours of sleep over.


Speaking of nostalgia, the event will also feature an Archer Cast Trivia Showdown that will talk about the greatest moments from the award-winning animated comedy series in the form of an epic trivia battle, because why not? Top that off with Jodie Whittaker and Mandip Gill looking back at the past two seasons of Doctor Who and we’re already pretty happy with all of this reminiscing.




3.  Manic for Animaniacs


Sorry for the Hulu-fest, but the streaming service will also bring us an exclusive first look at the brand new series of Animaniacs premiering on November 20, Friday. Executive producer Wellesley Wild and co-executive producer Gabe Swarr are joined by cast members Rob Paulsen, Tress MacNeille, Jess Harnell, and Maurice LaMarche to talk about the show.


4.  Props away


Itching to get your hands on original gear from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Thanks to Prop Store, you’ll get access to over 500 lots of original props as well as costumes from all seasons of the show in an online auction that’s happening this October 8 – November 10. If you’ve always wanted to have a piece of the show in your room to commemorate all the good times, there’s no better time than now.
