So I hope that you managed to get over to PiercingMetal and see all of the NY Comic Con posts that were going live as there were a ton of photos to enjoy. It’s one of my favorite conventions to attend despite the crushing humanity and now it looks like the game is going to be offering up a brand new experience for fans of the medium and that of designer toys with the recently announced “Five Points Festival”. I don’t usually use “The Chronicles” for announcements such as this but I think its going to be a good idea to help raise awareness as the aim to reach more and more people with this Lifestyle Blog becomes a plan. With that said, let’s take a glance at the full press release that I received.
The Press Release:
Clutter Magazine and LeftField Media today announced the debut of the Five Points Festival, a new convention focused on designer toys and comic art launching next year in New York City’s Lower East Side. The first Five Points Festival will take place May 20-21, 2017 inside Pier 36’s Basketball City, and the event presents itself as the antidote to the average con – a showcase for artists, creators, independent brands, and the counterculture they make.
Five Points will bring together influential names across the designer toy and comic worlds, with a roster already pledging their support. Clutter Magazine, a leading voice in the designer toy world, will curate the Five Points Festival’s toy guests and exhibits, with brands Kidrobot, Super7, Popaganda, Cotton Candy Machine, and Toy Tokyo taking part, and Ron English and Tara McPherson leading the art toy luminaries who’ll appear as guests. On the comic side, Five Points will be presented overall by Midtown Comics, the largest comic retailer in America, and confirmed comic artists and writers in attendance – known for their independent, avant garde, and creator-owned work – will include Bryan Lee O’Malley, Amy Reeder, Brandon Montclare, Kate Leth, Cliff Chiang, Ivan Brandon, Christopher Hastings, and James Tynion IV.
