This past weekend was the WinterCon convention for 2016 and it was held at the Resorts World Casino in Queens, NY. To my knowledge this was the second time that the event would be held here and the second WinterCon to even take place so after exploring the overwhelming NY Comic Con, I was very interested in seeing what was going on over here.

A few months ago, the Weather Wizard decided that the Stephen Amell convention known as “Heroes and Villains Fan Fest” needed to be waylaid by some serious blizzard action. The storm hit our region hard and dumped approximately three feet of the white stuff on our Metropolis and it was not only enough to cancel the Saturday portion of the convention, but the respective mayors and governors put their areas of control under a “stay in your house” lock down by turning off mass transportation and overall mobility while the snow was cleared. Reaching the convention for the Sunday session would be all but impossible unless you had checked into a nearby hotel on Friday night. Fast forward to now when the convention was rescheduled for the warm summer month of July at the same location with most of the same guests that were supposed to appear that last time and here we go with an exploration of the Saturday part that I attended as a member of the online media. It was a very fun day for sure and here is my first chapter of visuals.
You always run into a Joker like this at such an event. I wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂

Greetings my dear readers and welcome back to our series of posts from the 2015 NY Comic Con. For those who are just joining us, you have arrived at the final chapter of the Day Three visuals that were collected from the adventure. What a blast its been so far (as we’ve been to the event for three days in a row already) and there will still be the Day Four stuff that will begin tomorrow. I’ll start off this post with a very special bunch of photos that are celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the NYFD. This anniversary was done in part by the FDNY Foundation and ReedPop who partnered with Marvel Comics to celebrate the real heroes of the NYFD and EMS. All of the helmets were on display and were going to be auctioned off. Talk about your one of a kind art. Take a look. My favorite is this first one with Iron Man.
