Comic conventions, like political conventions, are places where groups of like-minded enthusiasts gather for pageantry and the revelation of a superhero to save modern times. Commune with society-saviors with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get one adult ticket to the Wizard World Big Apple Comic Con “Spring Edition” on Sunday, May 22 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Penn Plaza Pavilion (a $30 value at the door; a $20 advance value). Two children 10 and under receive free admission when accompanied by an adult.

The Wizard World Big Apple Comic Con “Spring Edition” herds international artists, writers, and celebrities together into one superpowered carnival atmosphere. Attendees can wander the pavilion’s floor and meet their film and comic-book idols face-to-face, asking penetrating questions about their artistic processes, favorite projects, and availability to join a vigilante crackdown on line-cutters. The day’s program features events and guests, including a Q&A with Chandler Riggs of The Walking Dead renown, appearances by Harry Potter’s Tom Felton and Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark artist Greg Horn, and a writing panel featuring Eisner Award–nominee Matt Kindt.

Comic Con guests can dress up in comic- or movie-themed costumes as elaborate as Rube Goldberg’s lamest excuse while circulating the convention center to collect autographs, merchandise, and photos with fellow enthusiasts. The gaming hall is free and open to those who need to work off some jitters from meeting giants of panel and screen.
