Many fans have come up to our booth and asked why we haven’t been to previous New York Comic-Con events. Well…for a not for profit site like us, New York is not cheap! So this year, we took the leap and thanks to the help of some great sponsors, we were able to put up a booth, host a panel and host a party! So a special thanks needs to be sent to our major sponsors and The Noble Collection. These two companies made a significant donation to our presence here at the show and we encourage you to return the favor by supporting them. We have also gotten great support from our friends at PEZ and Houghton Mifflin! And we can’t forget the generous donations from our friends at The Tolkien Shop,, EMPIRE magazine, Weta Workshop, and Sideshow Collectibles. If you would like to see us at more events like NYCC in the future, please take some time to tell our sponsors you appreciate their support of the Tolkien community. Please consider them when you are making purchases as well! (If you are in NYC, don’t forget to stop by’s booth at the show – Booth 2813)

And don’t forget the ‘Spot Simone‘ photo/twitter contest!
