New York Comic Con fever has hit the city once again, and this weekend we’ll see thousands of enthusiasts, semi-enthusiasts and those who just want to do something cool, make the journey to comic-east’s hallowed halls – the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center – on the big island. It’s worth mentioning that the state of the economy could have a variety of effects on this year’s many planned events, and some of those effects could actually be positive. As I walk the streets of the city, I’ve had the feeling that people have not only been in a general state of malaise, but have also been seeking a shot in the arm to break out of it. For New Yorkers, Comic Con could at least contribute to that medicine dose.

Some of the many “celeb” attendees include Yvonne Strahovski from NBC’s Chuck; cult genre director Takashi Miike will personally introduce the World Premiere screening of his latest effort Yatterman; Josh Whedon will unveil his latest action thriller/sci-fi TV series Dollhouse, and much, much, much more.

That said, I’ve prepared a list of some of what I feel are the must-attend panels and events that will be taking place, specifically film and TV-related wares.
