New York Comic Con is just a few weeks away, and if you are an Adult Swim that is attending the event you might want to map out the network’s offerings, or adjust your Pickle Rick cosplay for colder weather. This year Adult Swim will be bringing the popular traveling experience ‘Adult Swim On the Green’ to NYCC, staring on Tuesday, October 3 at Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, New York. If you are not familiar with NYC, this is not walking distance from the Javits Center, so plan your route. You can spend the day outside (so again dress accordingly) and experience games, fellow viewers, food trucks and trivia for exclusive Adult Swim prizes. Just like they did at San Diego Comic Con, Adult Swim will be connecting with fans, and offering a fun night full of Adult Swim fun and surprises. If you attend the outdoor fest you will also be treated to a free screening of “Things You’ve Never Seen Before,” which is a look at what’s on the horizon for Adult Swim. This includes un-aired episodes, and never before seen pilots and specials.
Later that week, make your way over to the Hammerstein Ballroom on Friday, October 6 (this is near the Javits Center) for a special look at the all-new Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special: Look Who’s Walking. Fans will also be treated to a glimpse of Robot Chicken Season 9. On Saturday, October 7, Robot Chicken will be signing autographs at the Private Autographing station within the Javits Center. If you need to set a reminder, “Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special: Look Who’s Walking” will premiere on Sunday, October 8 at Midnight and Robot Chicken season 9 premieres this Winter on Adult Swim.
One of the hottest wheels in the city will be the popular #Rickmobile, which will be rolling through the NYC Tri-State area between October 5th through October 8th. You can track the mad scientist’s movements online as the custom mobile pop-up shop stocked with exclusive Rick and Morty items makes its way to New York.
