Okay so here we are again and before this installment gets underway let me thank you for sticking with this group of narratives for so many parts already. To me as a photographer and journalist, the NY Comic Con is one of the most daunting of events to cover because its not only massive in scope but its also taking over other locations as well. Sure we have the Press Badge as our credentials but that doesn’t let you jump lines to cover panels and appearances, you have to arrive early as all heck to make sure you are inside those. As result, I stick to the Javits Center generally and explore as much as possible as you have seen in the past posts. Day Three is the Saturday session and the most attended historically speaking. Part 1 of this days overview will begin in a moment and find me exploring Artist Alley and some other regions. If you missed anything that came before this post, click on THIS LINK to open a battery of content to peruse. Shall we?
I’m also going to keep featuring all of the cosplayers that stop and talk to me because they are awesome and deserve to be celebrated.

Congratulations readers you have safely arrived at the final batch of posts for the 2016 NY Comic Con. I’ve been doing this sort of post for a couple of weeks in order to make sure I got all of the necessary images to your favorite device. Today begins the Sunday session of NYCC which is the “Family Day” event. That means a whole LOT of little ones are scurrying about so you need to pay attention. If you are just now joining into the proceedings please click on THIS LINK first since it will bring you a rundown of all the chapters that have been posted before this one. I’ll start my visuals with a super team of creatives in Marjorie Liu and Amy Chu. I need to look more into Marjorie’s work as “Monstress” sure sounds interesting. Amy is known to me for her work on the brand new KISS Comic which I have read in previews. They were at the Comixology table signing the trading cards with their faces on them.

Oh hey there, you’re up. That’s good to see being the case because we’ve been here for quite awhile making sure your view screen is loaded with wonderful images from the recent 2015 NY Comic Con. Though the event has been over for several days by the time you are seeing this, I still have a few more chapters to share with you. Long time readers know we generally post about “50” photos in each of the posts for ease of enjoyment and focus. Let’s start today’s party by saying “I’m the King Of Rock, there is no higher, you sucka MC’s better call me Sire” because that is the one and the only Darryl McDaniels or DMC from the famous Rap group Run DMC. Darryl has his own comics imprint and was enjoying his time at NYCC. He was in Artist Alley and talked to every single fan that came to his table. That is class.

Well hello again, its nice to see you back here. There is a lot to absorb here from the Day Three things at NY Comic Con so I am just going to get started with some additional adventures from my wanderings in Artist Alley. Here’s Mr. Paul Mounts, colorist supreme. At times I will note the artist if their name is not displayed but most of the cosplayers I will not since you know these outfits by now I am sure. Time to zoom zoom zoom.

Welcome back my friends to the posts that never end, I’m so glad you could attend look inside, look inside. Okay so I must apologize for using a line from the great Emerson, Lake and Palmer tune but I felt it applied for the situation and we are here at Chapter Three of my Day One explorations of the brand new Special Edition NYC convention. As has been done in numerous Convention posts, these chapters are broken into “50” images apiece to let you best absorb the fun. It also keeps the tags down to under 100 for the posting and that is easier on me. So let’s get started with the sights and stuffs by showcasing the booth for the “Captain Action” action figure line. I owned a couple of these growing up and am stoked to see his return to uhm err, action.
