Today is the “Free Comic Book Day” for 2017 and there are a whole lot of awesome titles to secure for absolutely nothing. I hit my neighborhood shop Galaxy Comics in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn a short time ago and rushed back to showcase images of what is out there and that you should still be able to find providing you act fast. Here we go.
As we go through the stuff that I observed at today’s FCBD, I figured I would speak up on a few of them as the visuals go by but I will admit that I didn’t know every single title that was available today. This wouldn’t be a problem with the two offerings by Marvel and their “Guardians” title and the “Secret Empire” one. Each of these has a second story for fans to enjoy. Never a bad thing.
Not only is the excitement rising for “GOTG” since their film opened yesterday but also for “Wonder Woman” whose feature comes early next month. This Valiant Comics offering gives two tales which appears to be a common thread on this years FCBD

The scuttlebutt about this particular comic team-up was discussed on many of the geek websites a few months ago but I decided to wait until I held a copy of this in my hands to give you my impression of it, and its also now on the stands for immediate purchase. Ladies and Gentlemen I give you “Archie Meets Ramones”!!!! Check out the cover art and the overall premise from the Archie Comics website below.
“Hey! Ho! Let’s go! America’s favorite teens cross paths with the original NYC punks in this extra-sized one-shot spectacular that is not to be missed!
When the Archies tank at the Riverdale High Battle of the Bands, a magical twist of fate sends them hurtling into the past—and face-to-face with none other than the Ramones! Can the legendary punks get the Archies to realize their own rock ‘n’ roll potential and find their way home? Probably not—but it’ll be a blitzkrieg bop of a journey, as the two bands bounce from 53rd and 3rd to Rockaway Beach in this must-read crossover from the writers of the best-selling Archie Meets KISS and We Can Never Go Home Volume 1 with jaw-droppingly beautiful art from Gisele Lagace (“Occupy Riverdale”)!”

Hello my friends and wonderful readers. I am back with my expansive explorations of the 2015 NY Comic Con which was held this past weekend over at the Javits Center. I’m up to Day Two of the fun after putting up four chapters from Day One. Yes you read that correctly – four posts for one single day and we do that to keep the images to about “50” with each post. This lets the tagging remain controllable and the means for Cosplayers to find themselves a little more easily. Since this is Part 1 from Day Two I have no idea how many I might run but here we go with our first image which is a visual of the Hammerstein Ballroom entrance. This year the Super Week events have multiplied and the space at Javits was just not enough for all the panels so many of them were taking place here at the massive venue. If you have read our concert reports from here you know already just how big it is and now it was time to overrun the place with geek stuff – not that there is anything wrong with that.
According to some of the people on this tremendous line, this was for an “Adventure Time” panel. I’ve not yet seen this show but often see numerous cosplayers dressed up as the characters and that makes me think its something I need to see on Netflix. Were you one of the people on this line for the panel? Let me know in the comments section about how it was.

Well hello there my friends I am glad to see that you made it. I should actually stress that I am happy to see that I actually made it because as has been noted across the previous days of NY Comic Con 2014 coverage, I have had a Heavy Metal concert to attend for PiercingMetal.com since the event began. Yep, so far I’ve seen Judas Priest with Steel Panther, Within Temptation with Amaranthe and last night was X Japan. That show was mind-blowing but they played a super long time. Don’t get me wrong I am not one to complain about a long show but this was too long after all the activity I have been involved in. Nothing that some copious amounts of coffee cannot fix. That being said welcome to our Day Four explorations of NY Comic Con. Let’s start with our Marvin The Martian Cosplayer. Take me to your coffee…..I mean leader.
You know him you love him its the great Neal Adams.

Hello there once again oh readers of the PiercingMetal website, we are back as promised with yet another exciting installment in our comprehensive coverage of the 2014 NY Comic Con. For those still coming to terms with their day this is the second chapter of the Day Two festivities and to say that my camera was being kept busy would be an understatement. Let’s get on down to it and finish with where I left off yesterday at the Mega Bloks pavilion. They had a wonderful assortment of statues around in their display and if you were lucky enough to get one they were handing out small figures to some of the people that passed by. I love the giveaways.
You can’t go wrong with anything Minions these days it seems. I love these little guys.
