New York Comic Con 2018: Here are the top 5 moments from Day 1
From 'Big Bang Theory' actress Kaley Cuoco voicing Harley Quinn to meeting meeting the Princess, one of the premiere comic conventions has many things lined up for you
Many comic fans headed for Javits Center to be a part of probably the biggest comic convention of the year, the New York Comic Con. NYCC is bringing back to North America some of the most intriguing contents of the comic world. As a premiere comic convention, it is all set to give fans some exclusive first looks of trailers, movies, shows. It will also host panels of comic legends, stars, major motion pictures studios, and of course, the streaming giants.
As Day 1 progresses on Thursday, here are the top 5 moments which happened and which are waiting around the corner to surprise you.
1. Kaley Cuoco to lend voice to Harley Quinn
As Penny, she has been quite a surprise package, but no one saw Kaley Cuoco coming up on stage along with Brendan Fraser to give their fans one of the biggest surprises of the first day.
Coming after Fraser, Cuoco left her fans wide-eyed when she revealed that for the first time she will lend her voice to Harley Quinn in the character's animated series.
Earlier, Fraser announced he will be lending his voice to Robotman in the upcoming 2019 action-drama series, 'Doom Patrol'. The 'Mummy' actor also revealed that Matt Boomer has joined the cast to play Larry Trainor, and as the voice-over character of Negative Man.

2. 'Titans' premiere
Although it's true that not many people will get to see the premiere of DC's first ever live-action series, it is still happening at Hammerstein Ballroom. Launching on its new streaming service, this darker take on the classic 'Teen Titans' which brings together Dick Greyson, Raven, Starfire, and Beast Boy is premiering its first two episodes at the convention. Luckily, that's not all for the 'Titans'. In the upcoming days, fans will also get to meet with the cast as they head towards the Live Stage for a cast interview. There is also a DC panel discussion happening in Room 1A24. In case, you have been following 'Young Justice', this is a good time to put up some questions.

3. Harry Potter #KeepsTheSecret
Potterheads are already getting into the hype of NYCC after Audible and Pottermore Publishing came up with the "Pensieve" experience for the fans. Celebrating the magical world's 20th anniversary, the two companies have installed the Pensieve-like objects in order to give the Potterheads a nostalgic trip to Hogwarts and all its magical things.
On Thursday, Jamie Parker, the grown-up boy wizard, will be giving fans some behind-the-scenes details when he is joined by all seven original cast members from 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' at Javits Room 1A06.
4. The discounts
If you are still waiting around the stalls to meet a friend or maybe just hanging around to watch the Cosplay artists, then hurry up and head straight to Comixology because the comic book distributor is dividing its sale into sections with collections of comics grouped by publisher, hero or theme. The DC Volume 1 Sale is giving a discount on the first volumes in some of the publisher's best series to $5 each. There is a 50% off on every 'Walking Dead' comic ever published.
5. Meet the Princess
Remember when just a change in a costume made almost every animation-watcher hate the new She-Ra because she wasn't...well, let's just say, not appealing enough. Well, that doesn't matter anymore because now fans can decide for themselves if all that controversy was truly worth the pain. Noelle Stevenson and Dreamworks Animation's reboot of 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Powers' might give its fans some exclusive episodes from the series which is set to release on November 16. The panel, including Stevenson, voice actresses Aimee Carrero and Karen Fukuhara and some surprise guests, are at the Hammerstein Ballroom.
