PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2013: Day 3 – Part 7

Well hello once again dear readers and fans of NY Comic Con, I am here once again to present another chapter in the adventures that I took at the 2013 event over at Javits Center. Now I’ve been dishing out the Day Three stuff for quite a few days already but as you know this is based on just how busy that particular day is. I spent a fair amount of time in the Artist Alley at this point in the day and was glad to feature all of these creative types. I’ll label as needed but most of the folks have their sign in the photo as well, let’s walk.

Examining “The Misadventures Of Electrolyte” Issues 3 & 4

Last week I offered up some overview and opinion on the first two issues of “The Misadventures Of Electrolyte and The Justice Purveyors” that I had gotten my hands on during the 2011 NY Comic Con. I now continue the process for this title with issues three and four.

“Electrolyte & The Justice Purveyors” #3

Issue Three Overview: The issue begins with some righteous ass kicking as Electrolyte, Sparkler and the rest of The Justice Purveyors attempt to stop the villainess Cottonmouth who made her first appearance in the last few pages of issue #2. The new super-villain makes short work of all the heroes who felt that by amping up their fluids by drinking everything in Binge’s Bar would help them. Of course the battle also does find more of Electrolyte’s power coming into play and that is a good thing. His powers were drained back in issue #1 and it was there that we learned that Electrolyte is much more powerful than even he ever imagined. Cottonmouth gets away before being captured and the team encounters a destitute Mr. Perfect whose life has come crumbling down since the events of the first issue. We learn that there is a close association between this fallen hero and the new villain in town and with this information The Justice Purveyors do some hunting to bring her in once and for all. Of course it’s never easy to do something like this and the fighting commences once again and just when you think it’s all been cleared up and solved, our main villain from the first issue returns with reinforcements that will assist in his diabolical plan to steal Electrolyte’s growing powers. The new villain joining in to the fray is Super 8. Let’s see how they get out of this one in issue #4.

Examining “The Misadventures Of Electrolyte” Issues 1 & 2

“Megalopolis is a virtually crime-free city. That’s great for the citizens of Megalopolis, but not for its superheroes. Now superheroes must compete against each other for work and no one is more affected by this plight than The Justice Purveyors. Led by Electrolyte, The Justice Purveyors primary stock and trade has been chasing reckless jaywalkers, dealing with drunk and disorderlies, scofflaws and general cases of moral turpitude”.

Such is the premise of “The Misadventures Of Electrolyte and The Justice Purveyors”, the first graphic novel by writer Patrick Reilly and artist Butch Mapa. Colors come from Mitch Claussen with letters by Wilson. I met Patrick at the NY Comic Con back in 2010 and he was kind enough to put a copy of the first issue in my hands but at the time I was not yet mapped out on how I wanted to do some comic book overviews. The site would get more into that when DC Comics launched their “The New 52” initiative in the last part of 2011 and this leads me into finally getting some comments out about the first two issues of the title. Read on.

PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2011: Day 2; Part 1

Friday was here and we were now at what amounted to the true beginning of the NY Comic Con for 2011. Yesterday’s preview that we managed to get during the Press, Professionals & VIP Ticket Holders day was great, but it was only a three hour tour of what was there and this event is not something that is easily digested in that amount of time by any stretch of the imagination. As mentioned in the first chapter of these adventures I will be breaking the days up into different parts to allow an easier manner of enjoyment. I snapped a lot of photos and the Press adventuring continues now.

Once again joining me for the Con would be Skeleton Pete as he was mapping out his own coverage on his blog. The weather on Friday was being reported on the questionable side so we arrived at the Javits Center shortly after the doors to the tremendous space had been opened. As we walked down the street we witnessed a lot of the Cosplayers heading in the same direction and our first photo for the day was this charming Harley Quinn. She surprised me when she said she had remembered me and the website from the Emilie Autumn show that was back in February. Here we see her willing to hench for hugs and with a mini Joker.
