DC Comics @ Book Expo/The Book Con 2019

As previously discussed, I was in attendance at the annual Book Expo and Book Con that was being held at the famous convention center the Javits. Technically speaking, this is being loaded up on the final day of the Expo part of the convention which is the more business side. The Book Con portion begins tomorrow and will run the entire weekend. During the more business side of it all I try to see what the folks at the comic book publishers are doing if they are in attendance and having already presented some of the findings at Image Comics (seen HERE), its time to share my quick visit to the DC Entertainment booth.

The folks following the Events Calendar or keeping tabs with our adventures on Facebook and Twitter where I announce what I am up to already know that I began my exploration of the annual Book Expo which takes place at the Javits Center for three days. Book Expo leads into the Book Con and this first half is for industry and press only while the second half is for the public. One of my regular stops during Book Expo is the comic book section where I find our friends from Image Comics and some of the others and its here I can snag a few piles of few comic books to share with our readers. This year they had a smaller section and what you see in these photos below is the assembly line of issues that were being placed into a nice gift bag for anyone interested.

Exploring WinterCon 2018 @ Resorts World Casino: Chapter 2

Greetings Geeks!!!! Welcome back to more of the wandering in the aisles of the Resorts World Casino expo floor where the 2019 WinterCon was taking over like gangbusters. I’m continuing from where I left off in Chapter 1 so be sure to visit that installment first in the event you are just joining us. This chapter has a LOT of the cosplayers that we met and I will not be naming all of them since you should know that stuff by now if you are reading this website. I will however begin with some famous names in Japanese Pop Culture with Tsugutoshi Komada and Bin Furuya. Komada played Jet Jaguar in the “Godzilla Vs. Megalon” film and my hope is that this character somehow returns in the upcoming “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” film that opens next summer. Then there is Bin Furuya who portrayed Ultraman. Arigato for the photos gentlemen.

Exploring WinterCon 2018 @ Resorts World Casino: Chapter 1

Greetings my fellow Geeks, it’s time once again to offer up the findings at the recently held WinterCon which took over one of the expo floors at the massive Resorts World Casino in Queens. This year marks my third straight year of attending as a member of the accredited press and amounts to my final convention being covered for this side of my creative fence. Let’s start exploring the visuals and see if we chance upon any old friends.

These fun-loving cosplayers were my first “fans” of the day and so they are thusly honored. For the convention I’d be once again using my trusty “convention camera” which is my handy dandy Samsung and my mobile phone, the Galaxy Note 8 since I want to load a lot of slightly different visuals up to our Instagram. I’ll have that linked in my closing so don’t worry about it right now.

Exploring New York Comic Con 2018: Day Four (Part 3)

“This is the end, Beautiful friend, This is the end, My only friend, The end. Of our elaborate plans, the end, Of everything that stands, the end, No safety or surprise, the end. I’ll never look into your eyes again…….” Hey friends, my apologies for seeming rather morose and foreboding but I tend to get that way after a lengthy batch of presentations like these New York Comic Con ones. That said we have indeed arrived at the final installment from this years convention with Part 3 of Day Four right before your very eyes. Since I’ve been telling people about these posts for the last few days I am sure that some are only joining us now and they should click HERE first to see all of the chapters that have come before this latest one. With our final installment I am just going to finish some visuals from the Artist Alley and Main Floor before I head home for some much needed rest. Let’s go.
