Fans First

We understand that we utilized a new and more intensive application than NYCC has used in previous years; however, the growth of the show and demand for tickets has required us to revise our Press review process. NYCC has a fans first attitude, and we wish to provide as many tickets as we can to
show attendees. This more thorough review will allow us to welcome more fans.
