The timing of this article is a little late but I had the 2016 International Toy Fair for a few days and it really locked out my time to get some stuff out to you but yeah you are reading this correctly, there will be NO Special Edition: NYC for this 2016 year and that’s a shame because it was a lot of fun. It was also under the command of ReedPOP who are the folks that give us the NY Comic Con every year and have been doing so for ten years straight now. It was reported that the 2015 convention attendance numbers had beaten those that were found at the West Coast event Comic-Con International: San Diego and that my friend is pretty bad ass. Recently GSVP of ReedPOP Lance Fensterman was interviewed by Comic Book dotcom and I’ve quoted some of that for you below.
Here is an excerpt from the interview by ComicBook.com;
“The problem is, there’s not necessarily a place to expand the convention further. The Javits Center in New York got a boost from the addition of a new subway station across the street from it, but it needs more square footage in order to expand. That’s become a central issue for Lance Fensterman, Global Senior Vice President of ReedPOP. The goal is to expand into more of New York City, with the square footage to spare. I really want to get New York Comic-Con all over the city. We’ve been chipping away at that, with some success,” Fensterman told ComicBook.com in an interview. ” Being in Hammerstein Ballroom and programming content there, great. Getting some of the NYC Super Week events out there,” he said. That’s the goal going forward then. ” We really want to take a big step forward in kind of growing outside of the Javits Center, because that’s the only place we can grow. But really taking that event much more city-wide is a big goal.” Continue reading Insert Sad Emoticon Here; There Will Be No Special Edition: NYC for 2016→
Hey there my friends, so we are now officially down to the wire with the posts about the Special Edition: NYC for 2015 and its rather sad to be closing out on this coverage since I was having such a good time. So let’s get down to the cosplayer fun and start with this trio of characters that I am completely unaware about.
I did realize that this was Poison Ivy of course but only after first thinking that she was She-Hulk. I’m not always on my game with this stuff despite my trying to be.
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.
Hey there, hi there, ho there it is nice to have you back at the PiercingMetal site for yet another piece of our Special Edition NYC coverage puzzle for their 2015 event. For those new to the presentation this is the third chapter so its easy for you to go back and see what you have missed and to stay tuned for what is to come up afterward. That being said lets get this party started. On your mark, get set, geek out……
Good morning readers and welcome back to the visuals from this years Special Edition NYC convention. If you are just now hearing about the site, you’ve arrived at the Second Chapter of the presentation so you might want to click HERE and see the First Chapter before continuing along. If you do that the whole adventure will be much easier to enjoy so by all means please do and then follow along with the next. I’m going to start with this anime Cosplayer but I admit I am terrible at Anime so do not know the character.
