Whew was all that I could say now that the Saturday session of the NY Comic Con was over. There were tens upon tens of thousands of fans and professionals at the Javits Center yesterday and while I personally braved it alone, it was a mission accomplished. Today I would again be joined by the presence of Skeleton Pete and we decided to mix and mingle our day to cover more ground. So without any further adieu and with our wonderful press passes in hand – away we go…….
I didn’t realize this last year but apparently the Sunday session of the Comic Con is considered Family Day and all children under the age of twelve get in for free. They also get a cool laminate like this one below.
There were a lot of Cosplayers to get a glimpse of so we started the fun early. Here is Lady Deadpool and Deadpool. Dangerous couple for sure.
I never realized that the Black Cat had a thing for Nick Fury. Talk about dangerous liaisons.
This was a very scary Ninja cosplay
I’m not really sure what they were supposed to be but nice outfits.
This young lady was walking into the Convention at the same time as Skeleton Pete and I. She was a superb Lady Loki and she kindly indulged this mortal scribe with a photo.
It seems as though where Loki wanders so does the mighty Thor to make sure she is not up to any monkey business.
Here is a terrific Phoenix Cosplay
This giant robot was introducing a booth and letting the kids get a photo with him
Two Sisters all Anime’d Out
Speak softly and carry a big weapon says this Cosplayer
I didn’t recall the name of the booth but it was focused on vintage jewelry, trinkets and weapons.
Wow look who it is…..it’s Virgil the former assistant in the ring for Ted DiBiase “The Million Dollar Man”.
Here is another glimpse of the Hangry & Angry Booth. I decided to shoot a couple more images of the sign and characters displayed. They are so quirky.
Hangry & Angry Plush Dolls
Here’s the main man behind the Inkbot.net Booth. They do webcomics.
These lovely Cosplayers were Violet Girl and Black Cat. The purple pretty you see created the character for the con that morning she said. Clever.
This beautiful woman is Yaya Han, an international costume designer and model. She is big on the Cosplay and dressing up and had some awesome stuff for people to purchase at her booth. She was also quite the hit with the fans who wanted photos with her.
I asked if I could take a second since I was not sure I got it correctly and for some reason was having trouble forming words around her LOL
Welcome to the Mishka Booth. They hail from Brooklyn so I had to give them some posting love
If Wolverine were Wolverette….She would look like this young lady
Here is a couple of cool Green Lantern cosplays
Even though he was doing an official signing in the Autograph Alley at the Con, Mark Hamill would also be appearing at the New Gen booth since he had a forward in the trade paperback.
I could only get so close for the shot. By the time I had moved over closer he had left. Oh well.
Here is one of the New Gen creaturettes….
Their table had some cool freebies. I took a couple of the spider rings since I geek out like that.
I liked this young lady’s color scheme so asked her to pose for a moment
Some of the creative resources at the Marvel Comics Booth
Since there were less people around the Captain America display I decided to snap another shot of the amazing costume for The First Avenger.
Cobra Commander was willing to pose when I told him we were a very non-Joe supportive site. I hated to lie to the Commander but I needed his cooperation.
Here is a couple of video game booths. They were doing great at this years Con.
There was also a Transformers game called “Fall Of Cybertron” which I would have liked to see more of but I didn’t manage to get a chance. Guess I will have to look online for more details.
An exhausted kangaroo…and he broke his key….
Over at the Vampire Freaks booth they had upped their game in terms of Booth Babes. This lovely was willing to show off any of their creepy coolness for you and even pose for a shot.
This next young lady was showing off some cool Wonder Woman pajamas. I guess this is a more adult oriented and obviously sexier version of “Underoos”
This was just too cute 🙂
Ms. Marvel was on point to defend the convention goers
More Anime mysteries for me to figure out…..
There is a new video game coming out called “Batman Arkham City”; It’s apparently fierce and this DC Direct booth had an exclusive figure of The Joker for the fans to purchase. It was about $25 to get one.
Remember Beetle Bailey and Popeye? They are featured on a Bloomingdales clothing line
I went back to the DC Comics booth and saw some of the creatives signing a cereal box. That surprised me and I didn’t know the full story behind it.
Here’s Paul Levitz who is not only the writer on The New 52 title of “Legion Of Super-Heroes” but he is also the former president of DC Comics itself.
I asked Paul to lend me a moment for an additional shot.
And here is Jim Lee, he is the current Co-Publisher of DC Comics and the artist on the new “Justice League” title which is part of The New 52.
More Jim Lee
Don’t worry folks, Batman is ready to handle everything
For the strange doll collector, your very own rotting zombie stuffed doll.
More folks at the Image Comics booth.
I didn’t realize that Erik was willing to do a free sketch but my buddy got one. I settled for the photo, he is such a nice guy. I loved his “Savage Dragon” character and when he worked on Spider-Man years ago.
I then popped over to the Archaia Entertainment Booth and briefly met up with Tim Beedle and the charming Chandra Free.
That brings us to the end of the first chapter for Day Four but don’t you worry there are still a couple of more to go before we send you on your merry way. Thanks for sticking with us for all this stuff, as its a blast bringing it to your attention. Some of the people mentioned in this posting have websites so please check them out before you continue along. I am sure that they would appreciate you looking into what they do.
