WHAT TO EXPECT

PROGRAMMING

A RICH SELECTION OF PANELS

Every comic convention needs solid programming. We’re working hard to bring that to you. Without giving too much away too soon, we can tell you to expect a minimum of 10 panels and workshops for our one-day convention, with guests aplenty!

ARTIST ALLEY

MEET COMIC BOOK CREATORS

Some say it’s the best part of comic book conventions: meeting artists and writers in the flesh. We’re bringing up to 24 high profile creators to JewCE. Keep an eye on this page for announcements!

Open from 9am-7pm!

EXHIBIT

WATCH AND LEARN

Explore a new Jews in Comics exhibit at the Center for Jewish History in advance of the convention. Good thing the curators are comic book aficionados… They are bringing their A game to this exhibit. Oy!

MAIN HALL

LIFE, BOOKS, AND GOODIES

While Artist Alley can be considered the soul of a comic book convention, you still expect to find several vendors on location. And we will have them: books, graphic novels, t-shirts, mugs and so much more will be available at JewCE!

VIRTUAL JEWCE

NOT IN NYC? NO PROBLEM!

You’re not going to be around Manhattan for JewCE? Don’t worry, we thought about you! We have a special Digital Pass that’ll allow you to watch all the panels from your couch, your bed or wherever you want. Out of sight, definitely not out of mind!

PREVIEW NIGHT

LET’S CELEBRATE!

A one day convention is good, but a day and a half is better, right? We agree! That’s why we decided to add a PREVIEW NIGHT to our one day convention. This will be a chance to discover the con early but also to enjoy an amazing special red carpet event: the JewCie Awards. During the ceremony, we will announce the recipients of our very first awards. Stay tuned for more info on this one-of-a-kind pre-show!

TEAM jewce

The Jewish Comics Experience has what it takes to make it to the major league of comic conventions and I could not be more proud to be a part of it. Comic books, graphic novels, and sequential arts are amazing mediums to convey stories. This industry was founded by a group of young — mostly Jewish — creators in the 1930/40s. JewCE will keep honoring the past while promoting present-day storytellers and inspiring creators of tomorrow. It will be an inclusive journey into Jewish diversity through art and creativity.”

FABRICE SAPOLSKY
Comic Book Creator and Publisher, Co-Creator, JewCE

The JewCE convention is not only unique in its attention to the Jewish origins of and influence on the comics industry. It’s a love letter to the creators themselves, Jewish and non-Jewish, who have worked to include Jewish characters in their stories, to demonstrate Jewish diversity across the pages, and to provide a visual and cultural home for Jewish readers of all ages to feel seen, included, and embraced. At times only perceptible to those in the know, Jews have long had a home between the covers of comic books of all sorts. JewCE brings that home to light, celebrating Jewish characters and creators of all ethnicities, nations of origin, religious observances, genders, sexual orientations, and political affiliations”
