Yesterday, New York City hosted the Big Apple Comic Con over at the Penn Plaza Pavilion and this fun-filled comic book convention is the brainchild of the one and only Mike Carbo. I spent a few hours at the Con shooting photos of both the vendors and the wonderfully creative cosplayers and here is a batch of my visuals. Enjoy. I’ll start off my presentation with a few pics of the great Neal Adams who had a large number of tables downstairs on the lower level. It’s always great to see Neal and the family.
Once I got myself upstairs I began some investigation and the first cosplayer I met was this charming Starfire from the New Teen Titans. She and some heroic friends were repping a dealer booth.
She had a Lady Deadpool associate with her who was braving the event unmasked. Luckily there were no villains in the immediate vicinity so I think her secret was safe.
Speaking of Deadpool, here is a great version of him. He was posing while his friends did numerous spanning shots of the pose. I wonder what they were going to do with them all. I imagine it will be interesting just the same.
I loved the idea of a Lego Deadpool as it pushed the boundaries of being creative for these events a little further. Nice work.
Wolverine was here and proving that Logan in these duds was no “Old Man” (that’s a play on the new comic book of course).
This is the lovely Mississippi but I am afraid that she is an unknown cosplay to me in terms of her outfit.

I’ll be back with a second chapter very soon but I hope that you enjoyed this one and all the wonderful people that were showcased in this post. Many thanks to those cosplayers who helped bring this narrative to bigger and much more colorful life. Nice work. For those using Instagram, I also uploaded some different images that were snagged by the PiercingMetal Mobile device which can be viewed on our official account HERE.
