LEAGUECAST #171 – Interview With Mike Armstrong Of The NEW YORK COMIC-CON & News Headlines


[Ed Note: Interview with Mike runs from 12:58-37:04]

It’s an incredibly packed LeagueCast this week, as Jeff, Shawn, and Adam are joined by Mike Armstrong, the North American Events Director for ReedPop – the folks who put on the massive New York Comic-Con! Mike talks about the difficult decision to eliminate 3&4-day passes for the show and only sell single-day admissions, the challenges in dealing with the huge construction project at the Javtis Center, the improvements and changes that have affected the Con over the years, what amazing content NYCC will feature this year and in the future, and much more! It’s a must-listen interview if you’ve ever been to the convention or are planning on attending! In addition, the League gets into some breaking news in the world of superhero film, discussing the Venom movie announcement, as well as all of the big moves happening in the DCEU with Aquaman, The Batman, Gotham City Sirens, Suicide Squad 2, and more! All that, plus Shawn’s headlines, weekly geek media recommendations, Adam cheats when asked to name all the Venom symbiotes, and the usual banter and tangents in the mighty League manner!

About Author

Jeff Carter

Jeff is the defining voice of his generation. Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.
