Alright so are you still with me or have you had enough? Good, I knew you had it in you. So here I am once more with another chapter in a seemingly never-ending batch of presentations from the 2016 NY Comic Con. I’m up to Part Three of Day Three (which sounds kind of nice to say) and I’m in the Artist Alley area still so a lot of awesome people who bring you the comics stuff to enjoy. If you are just now joining into the proceedings please click on THIS LINK first since it will bring you a rundown of all the chapters that have been posted before this one. Day Three is the Saturday session of the NYCC and often the most congested in the Main Expo floor so its a general practice of mine to be in Artist Alley for this one. A lot of the artists have their names in the images so I don’t need to chime in unless I feel it necessary. Here we go.
Oh hey there, you’re up. That’s good to see being the case because we’ve been here for quite awhile making sure your view screen is loaded with wonderful images from the recent 2015 NY Comic Con. Though the event has been over for several days by the time you are seeing this, I still have a few more chapters to share with you. Long time readers know we generally post about “50” photos in each of the posts for ease of enjoyment and focus. Let’s start today’s party by saying “I’m the King Of Rock, there is no higher, you sucka MC’s better call me Sire” because that is the one and the only Darryl McDaniels or DMC from the famous Rap group Run DMC. Darryl has his own comics imprint and was enjoying his time at NYCC. He was in Artist Alley and talked to every single fan that came to his table. That is class.
Hello again readers and welcome to the continuing coverage of the Special Edition: NYC for 2015; I’m not going to dance around with any long intro right now since we are deep into the mix of this presentation so let’s get the party started by turning up the “Rock Box” and saying hello to Hip Hop legend, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels. Darryl has his own comic output now under Darryl Makes Comics and he was a big hit at the convention today and talked to every fan he met at length. That is class.
Not sure if this is a Lady Sif cosplay but am fairly certain that this is Joanna, a talented seamstress that has been met before at Cons.
This weekend was the sophomore go-round for the Special Edition NYC Convention which some readers of the site and those who attended last will recall as being held at the Javits Center where we find the massive NY Comic Con taking place. This year would be different and the event would set up shop down on Pier 94 way down on the West Side. This event space is quite a hike and I only mention that for any Cosplayers heading to it sporting massive bulk to their costumes. Also the slightly in need of more exercise folks such as myself. I’ll be presenting about “50” images in each post as I’ve done in all of our Comic Con reports. Let’s get to exploring.
As you can see by the sign at the entrance, the Special Edition NYC proudly showcases their social networks and encourages Tweeting and Instagram stuff from their attendees. I’m definitely going to be doing this via my sites own accounts of @piercingmetal and @piercingmetalnyc so check those out and give us a follow if you are enjoying the offerings.
The answer to the question about whether the PiercingMetal.com Editor leans to either the Yankees or the Mets might be solved by the very existence of this article as it finds me being on point for an affair at the brand new Yankee Stadium as the new Hard Rock Café opened its doors with the help of Ace Frehley, Scott Ian, Frank Bello, Anton Fig and Darryl “DMC” McDaniels today. That’s not a bad show of New York musical support and when you add former Yankee Bernie Williams to the mix you have a really rousing opening. I’ve been to the Hard Rock Café a number of times at its other locations and even reviewed a couple of shows that had gone on there, so when the chance arose to see Ace and the Anthrax guys open up the new one I could hardly resist. Here is how the opening day experience went down for those who have interest in learning more.
