The two will be appearing at panels and signings during the event, which takes place from Feb. 6 to Feb. 8 in teh Jacob Javits Center.

"New York Comic Con welcomes Gabe and Tycho to its 2009 event as the capstone of its gamer program, a program which features names including 2K Games, Activision, Codemasters, EA Mythic, Epic, Hudson, Konami, Sony Online Entertainment, and Ubisoft on our show floor or featured in our panel rooms," Show Manager Lance Fensterman said. "We're highlighting some of the biggest companies and most-anticipated games of 2009, and we're very, very happy to welcome the creators of Penny Arcade — the zeitgeist of the gamer community — to sit at the center of these festivities."

Don't worry, they're still going to be doing their 2010 PAX East Coast in Boston, think of this as a table setter.

Ps. I'll have last night's Denver Funde Razer donations up in a bit, I woke up like ten seconds ago. YAY
