Exploring New York Comic Con 2018: Day One (Part 2)

Greetings my friends and welcome back to another exciting chapter of my coverage of the 2018 New York Comic Con. As I’ve noted in an earlier chapter, this is my 9th straight year of attending the convention and I am blown away by how big its become. It’s the highlight of many a geeks year and I can’t blame them since there is so much to enjoy. To keep your focus, I’ve begun to break the days down into chapters and to see any of the stuff that’s come before this narrative just click HERE to open a new tab with all of the posts that have gone live on the website.  In the preceding chapter, I lauded the benefits of the Cheerios cereal found in the Family Room and here is the box that I secured my stash in during the days wander.

Generally speaking, I start my first day coverage in “The Block” but so far today I was being aimless and drifting about from section to section.  I wanted to see some artist friends so quickly headed to the Artist Alley area.

The legendary Marv Wolfman was at the convention this year.  I never met him before and was happy to get a chance to say hello.

These two lovelies were such a pleasure to talk to.  One was dressed as Cat Noire but the other I think was just being stylish.

The folks at SyFy were handing out snacks and bottles of water. So nice of them. One is best served by hanging onto their container when its empty to refill it at one of the many water fountains in the Javits Center.

I think this is one of my favorite cosplays. A Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man err Girl.

I also never thought I would like to see the day where Doctor Bong from Howard The Duck would be in my viewscreen.

Netflix is going to run a brand-new series called “She-Ra and the Princesses Of Power”. It looks skewed for a younger audience but this statue was a popular attraction of The Block.

The movie “Glass” will bring us the return of Mr. Glass and Bruce Willis in his “Unbreakable” self.  This is the comic book store from the original film.  Nice set up.

While this shot from above is not the best representation of what is going on “down there” on the Expo floor, its easy for you to get an idea of the sea of humanity that I am wandering for your Pop Culture pleasure.  I’ve still got a lot of ground to cover.
