Welcome back friends and here we are with yet another exciting look inside the 2015 NY Comic Con over at the Javits Center. As you can see by the title of the post, I’m up to the second chapter of the Day Two adventuring and as stated in the bunch of posts that preceded this one, will be offering up the next fifty images for your viewing pleasure. This posting is mostly the wonderful cosplayers and you should know the characters they are portraying by now. Here we go:
Hey there readers, the other day I hit the 2014 edition of Book Expo America which is another convention that I have been attending for a few years and showcasing with you here on the PiercingMetal site. It’s quite different from the NY Comic Con event, but I like to drop in and see what might be coming our way in the realms of music related and comic book super-hero type books. I’m quite the avid reader with interests in a wide variety of entertainment properties so its always fun to wander this event meeting the folks that are putting out items that fall into our readership wheelhouse. Let’s get started with the banner that greets educators and press as they walk into the Javits Center.
Also hanging above our heads was a great banner showcasing the “Family History Of The Simpsons”. Since I have been a fan of that show since it began airing so many years ago I am going to try and get a glimpse of this book when I hit the Abrams Comic Arts section of the expo.
Hello readers and welcome back to the continuing presentations from my recent visit to the NY Comic Con of 2013; I am still hard at work delivering all the wondrous findings and visuals from the second day of the convention and if you are just joining us on the program, please know that I have broken down my images into fifty per posting. Let’s get a move on shall we….
I don’t really like starting off a chapter with a Cosplay that I do not immediately recognize but the Manga stuff is too hard to follow. This young lady had an impressive battle stance and hence gets the honor just the same.
For those fans of Eddie Trunk’s radio program and hit VH1 Classic series “That Metal Show”, you will be pleased as the proverbial punch to learn that the second volume of his “Essential Hard Rock and Heavy Metal” has just been released. Take a look at the cover from this Abrams Books offering…..
PiercingMetal.com had the honor of being one of the many guests of Eddie Trunk and the fine folks from Abrams Books at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square in order to celebrate the release of the radio/television personality’s first ever book – “Eddie Trunk’s Essential Hard Rock and Heavy Metal”. For many years the general public has known Eddie from his radio shows both satellite and terrestrial and then as the main man on the VH1 Classic hit program “That Metal Show”. Now he can add author to his listing of accomplishments. The affair was not open to the general public but some of the shows fans were given the opportunity to win a spot in the room and also to receive a copy of the book to take home with them after it was all done. Pretty cool eh?
Considering that the site was a guest of Eddie and the publishing house my presence was more about raising a glass in honor of the book and to enjoy myself but that would not stop me from snapping some photos and bringing the readership into the room with me in some fashion after it had finished. Here’s a shot of Eddie holding the book and its principle photographer Ron Akiyama.
