  • Wizard World’s Big Apple Comic Con, New York (this is a pro con with big names: Adam West and Burt Ward; Lee Majors; Walter Koenig; Nicholas Brendon; Carmen Infantino; Mark Millar)

Cons are short for “conventions”, when people who rarely leave the house get together…just kidding, of course, they can be great fun.  For details, I recommend Fanboy’s Convention List.
