Exploring New York Comic Con 2018: Day Two (Part 1)

Greetings Readers and welcome back to the continuing presentations from the 2019 New York Comic Con. I’m now up to Day Two of the offerings but if you missed any of the Day One stuff you are so going to want to click HERE first to enjoy all of the chapters that preceded this one. I say this since I tend to refer back to pieces across the journey and I don’t want you to fall behind. Go ahead and look, I’ll wait – welcome back 🙂 So after Day One ended, I headed up to Paul Booth’s Last Rites Gallery to see the unveiling of a brand new graphic novel that is based on story ideas from Black Veil Brides singer Andy Black. Check out that summary by clicking THIS LINK.

To start off my day, I hit a press conference, panel or whatever that was called “From The Stage To The Page” and this was going to feature notable musical talent who have all worked on the comic book medium. Among these artists are Steve Aoki, Andy Black, Lights and the legendary Darryl McDaniels (aka DMC). Here are a few visuals from the panel, I did not record anything because I don’t think that ReedPOP likes that stuff. Don’t want to mess with the organizers after all.

The panel was interesting and I think my two favorite speakers were Aoki and McDaniels. Aoki for his wealth of diverse background on the melding of music into the format of his stories and DMC for just how fun he was up there. I swear he could have run the panel himself and no one would have complained.

I’m going to have to look into the graphic novels by Lights and Aoki.  I’ve perused the DMC one and Black’s doesn’t hit the racks until sometime next Spring so that will come when it comes.  Now its back into the fray that is a Friday almost noon at NYCC.  There are a lot of cosplayers in this one so if you see anyone you know please share the post link with them.
