October 3, 2014 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is thrilled to announce today it is participating in a special promotion during New York Super Week (NYSW), the week leading up to the start of New York Comic Con (NYCC) (Oct. 9-12) at the Javits Center in new York City. ReedPOP, the number one producer of the world’s largest pop culture events and the company behind NYCC and the inaugural NYSW, announced a partnership with Chevrolet and Uber that will put fans in the driver’s seat of convenience at this year’s events. As part of the partnership, Chevrolet will custom wrap nine different car models with some of the most iconic characters from comics, video games, and literature—including several from BOOM! Studios titles—that fans can Uber to events all across the city. The partnership will kick-off on October 3 and run through October 7.
Comic Con fans will also have a chance to win exclusive access to great prizes and collectibles thanks to the Chevrolet and Uber partnership. For instance, fans who ride in the Chevrolet Cruze may win BOOM! Studios exclusive comics and graphic novels. Those who ride in the New York Super Week Chevrolet Tahoe will be eligible to receive New York Comic Con and New York Super Week t-shirts, tickets to New York Super Week events, and much more.
Fans will also be eligible to win a trip to NYCC 2015 with VIP Tickets and a Chevy Car Exclusives Prize Pack through the “Chevrolet Gives You the Keys to NYCC” contest. Starting on October 3, fans are encouraged to tweet creative photos of one of the cars, using the hashtag #ChevyNYCC. Following the completion of New York Comic Con on October 13, NYCC and Chevrolet will pick the 10 best photos as finalists.
“This is the first year that we’re bringing New York Comic Con out of the Javits Center with New York Super Week and this partnership will allows fans to get to where they need to be throughout New York City,” said Larry Settembrini, Director of Strategic Accounts for ReedPOP. “Having some of the biggest brands custom wrap these Chevrolet cars will truly let everyone know that New York Comic Con is here and add another layer of pop culture to the week!”
“Chevrolet is thrilled to take our three year partnership with New York Comic Con to a new level of fan engagement,” said Chevrolet Marketing Manager Todd Reynolds. “These one-of-a-kind Chevy vehicles will provide fans with a unique opportunity to cruise around the city for free in pop culture style.”
“We are honored to be asked once again to participate in this very innovative venture with ReedPop and Chevrolet,” said BOOM!
