New Dorp High School will be hosting the first ever comicon in a New York City public school. The event will be held on Saturday, May 21, 2016 from 12PM to 5PM at the New Dorp High School campus at 465 New Dorp Lane on Staten Island. New Dorp High School's Comicon has already attracted the attention of comic book stores on Staten Island as well as others in the metro area.
Initially inspired by a student, New Dorp High School's Comicon is being organized by student committees with any proceeds being used to fund student and school needs. The event will include vendors, comic book displays, comic book and pop culture artwork, Dungeons & Dragons, local artists, student artwork, various panels and presenters, a costume contest, cosplay and a student created graphic novel.
Principal Deirdre DeAngelis says of the event, "This is very exciting for the New Dorp High School community. There is quite a buzz already. We pride ourselves on planning instructional initiatives that are somewhat outside the box, and this would be one such event."
