The first Special Edition, a new and smaller comics show launched by ReedPop, organizer of the blockbuster New York Comic Con, debuted at the Javits Convention Center this past weekend, June 14-15. Despite competition from two other local comics shows, Special Edition attracted pretty good crowds of fans on Saturday (though traffic was much reduced on Sunday) to a show featuring artists alley-style signings, an ample gathering of back issue vendors and toy dealers, show specials and a slate of programming that featured panels and discussions with such comics creators as Gail Simone, Mike Allred, Kurt Busiek, Amy Reeder, Jamal Peppers and many others. PW Comics World was on hand all weekend to photograph the artists, publishers and fans at Special Edition 2014.
