What can I expect from New York Comic Con?

I'm planning a trip to NYC in October, coinciding with New York Comic Con. I'd like to set my expectations at an appropriate pitch so that I'm not disappointed, and can balance the con with the other fun stuff I hear exists in New York.
I have been to Fan Expo in Toronto a few times and have always been a little underwhelmed by the programming. I am hoping that the publishers put a little more effort into events in their home market. I like attending panel discussions with creators, and would love to get into sneak previews of shows/movies, etc. I'm not really big on formal autograph sessions but I like being able to say hi to favorite authors/artists and thank them for their work.
Any and all advice for an NYCC noob is welcome. Is the 4-day pass a good investment for NYCC? Is it a fun convention? Good places to grab lunch near Javits Centre? etc.
I am a big homo so any insight specific to queer content would be much appreciated.
