Exploring Five Points Festival @ Brooklyn Expo Center: Part 3 (6/2/2018)

Those who are following along with this set of adventures that were shared on THIS POST, know that my PiercingMetal Media Outlet was wandering the aisles of the Brooklyn Expo Center for the 2nd Annual Five Points Festival. New readers will want to click that link first because I’ve been doing this methodically and this is the final installment. There’s been a lot of cool things to see and people to meet so far and I am almost sad that we are finishing up with this chapter. Here we go.

Hello again my friends. As mentioned the other day in THIS POST, The PiercingMetal Media Outlet is on point at the 2018 Five Points Festival and in case you’re wondering – you have safely arrived at our second chapter.

Exploring Five Points Festival @ Brooklyn Expo Center: Part 1 (6/2/2018)

If you’ve been keeping up with PiercingMetal on the social networking side, you know that it’s been a busy week already as over the last few days I’ve been spending time exploring the Book Expo that was being held at the Javits Center. While some of the discoveries at that convention have made their way here, a larger part of it gets posted on our Lifestyle Blog partner website “The Chronicles” of Piercing Ken. With the Book Expo completed it was time to get down to business at the still new Five Points Festival which has returned for its second year as a convention. This year it would move to the Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and this space is very well known to me as its the same place where I attend the NYC Hot Sauce Expo every year. The Five Points Festival is loaded with sights and designer toys galore.   Let’s take a walk.

Observing Image Comics @ Book Expo 2018

Now you already know that I was hitting the annual Book Expo and based on my findings have relegated most of my photos and notations over on “The Chronicles” of Piercing Ken since it made more sense.  However, this little narrative is being done to celebrate the great presence that our friends at Image Comics did this year in terms of all the great artist and writer signings and the cool freebies (the full rundown of appearances were cited HERE in case you missed it).  Let’s start off by gleaning this awesome tote that bears their logo and the cool phrase “I Believe In Comics”. We believe in them here at the Media Command HQ as well.

First up is artist Kickily who was signing copies of “Perdy” which is a Western themed title.  Kickily was also doodling for the people who were taking a copy of the book and I captured him doing this on mine for our Instagram.  I will embed that in a little later.

Exploring Big Apple Comic Con 2018: Part 2

Hello again my fiends, and welcome back to the narratives that are focusing on the just recently held Big Apple Comic Con. The event once again took place at the Penn Plaza Pavilion (oops, I mean the Jordan Pearl Pavilion as its now called) and we attended the Sunday part of the event. If you missed the first installment that is okay as you can just click HERE and be up to speed before we continue along.

Now since I ended the previous chapter with some residents of the Spider-Verse, how about beginning this installment with some more of them?
