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

Well hello again my friends and welcome back. We are now at the point in my exploration of the 2018 New York Comic Con that is the day that is not recommended for the weak or faint in constitution because this is the Saturday Day Three part and probably the busiest of all the four days. The overall glut of costumed humanity is difficult to describe but I will try and share some visuals from the madness as I explore the aisles. If you are just joining the presentations on the website, you’re going to want to click HERE first so you are up to speed. With this first installment of the day, I will be wandering around the Artist Alley a bit and seeing some of the wonderful cosplayers. There isn’t going to be much chatter from me since I’d like to test your knowledge on many of the characters. Here we go with the first cosplayer of the day. A gent dressed like Stephen King from “Creepshow”. You see the Number “7” train was not running this weekend which necessitated a long walk to the Javits.

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.

Exploring NY Comic Con 2016: Day Four, Part One (10/9/2016)

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.

PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2013: Day 3 – Part 2

Hey there readers and welcome back to the continued narratives from the 2013 NY Comic Con. I’m up to chapter two from the Day Three part of the convention and since this is the Saturday part of the whole enchilada that means I have my work cut out for me. Its technically the most populated day of them all. What better way to start today’s chapter then by featuring “Devo Duck” from Toy Tokyo. We’re still in “The Block” and I’ll be chiming in when possible. I don’t think you need me to label every single cosplayer we found.
