RECOMMENDED: New York Comic Con guide
For four days this October, the Javits Center is transformed into a geek micronation as eager, costumed hordes descend. This is the year of anniversaries, with Doctor Who celebrating its tenth year, Marvel reminiscing on 75 years with a panel conversation, and some of the most memorable of Star Trek's cast gathering to discuss the show's impact after more than half a century. On Oct11, College Humor will host "How to Get Paid for Being a Nerd," during which you can get the inside scoop on what it takes to make it in the world of Internet comedy. Three-day and four-day weekend passes are sold out, but single-day passes are still available for Oct 9. Run, don’t walk, to snatch up those spots, nerds.
