Okay my friends, I am back with one more chapter from the Day One visuals from the 2018 New York Comic Con. We’ve seen a lot of awesome stuff so far and if you are just joining us you should really click HERE first to enjoy all of the chapters that preceded this one. I will continue along in The Block which was where I left off. As with the preceding chapters, I am not talking continuously and only as inspired. In addition to some cool vendors we have a lot of awesome cosplayers in this installment.
Hello readers and welcome back to the in-depth exploration of the 2016 NY Comic Con. I’m up to my fourth chapter of offerings from the first day of the convention so without further adieu let’s get right down to business. I’ll start with the rocking band that was performing in one of the booths. They called themselves “Supergames”. Solid sounding group for sure.
Well hello once again dear readers and fans of NY Comic Con, I am here once again to present another chapter in the adventures that I took at the 2013 event over at Javits Center. Now I’ve been dishing out the Day Three stuff for quite a few days already but as you know this is based on just how busy that particular day is. I spent a fair amount of time in the Artist Alley at this point in the day and was glad to feature all of these creative types. I’ll label as needed but most of the folks have their sign in the photo as well, let’s walk.
Here’s Danny Fingeroth and he was showcasing a lot of his writing work today for all to enjoy.
Let’s get this party started shall we? Now, before I get into my many chapter posts about the 2012 NY Comic Con I want to tell you that it already has been a killer week for this reporter. All good things of course as we had a couple of concerts with Three Friends (doing their Gentle Giant set) and the mighty KISS performing at Live On Letterman in the famous Ed Sullivan Theater. This morning I hit a special Q&A session with KISS over at the Sirius XM Studios and of course all of those adventures will become posts as soon as I wrangle all the stuff together. Now it was time to get my butt in gear for the first part of Comic Con which was the Press/Professionals and VIP ticket holders day. This is the second year in a row that the fans mingled in with the Press and Pros as opposed to our kind being given a few hours of peace to observe and make notes about what we needed to see at the Con. The new model gets more fans into the room and now allows the event to span four days.
Once I secured my official Press Credentials it was into the halls of Javits I would go. The badge this year featured “The Walking Dead” rather prominently and as you can see by the photo above the press had a cool and scary looking zombie on it. Of course on the way down to the Javits Center, I met and walked to the hall with these three cool cosplayers. Since they were so nice I snapped my very first fan shots with them. This time around I think I will do a lot more cosplay photos since it lets the fans hard work shine. Enjoy…..
As you walked into the Javits just before the actual Convention Hall, you saw this awesome sight. A robotic forklift versus an Alien creature. Fans could get inside the automaton for a photo op but I was unsure whether there was a fee for this or not. Probably. Still cool.
I’ve been keeping up with my overviews of the issues of the superhero comedy series “The Misadventures Of Electrolyte and The Justice Purveyors” that I had been given by their writer Patrick Reilly at the 2011 New York Comic Con. Before I get into my thoughts about issue #4, you can peruse what I thought about Issue #1, Issue #2 and Issue #3 by clicking that highlighted text. Now let’s get funny!!!
Issue #4 Overview: We last saw Electrolyte being kidnapped by the forces of Wales and being returned to his villainous corporate citadel after a brief battle with the multiple villain Super 8. It’s hear that we learn that the new plan is for Electrolyte to be cloned and all his powers absorbed by Wales who is once again wearing the hero’s costume. Super 8 lines out his abilities and how they work which gives the hero a look at the potential Achilles heel if he is paying attention but before the entire plot can unfold The Purple Claw returns and saves Electrolyte from harm. The regular Justice Purveyors had their book club meeting and did not come to his aid because they were warned not to miss a night. Pretty funny. Of course Electrolyte is cloned but they are reject models and have powers that are not much use when it comes down to it. As the story progresses the villainous Wales seems to get the upper hand before a union of The Justice Purveyors and The Perfect 4 (now led by a once again confident Mr. Perfect) help to save the day. Overall the tale ends on a high note and finds Electrolyte feeling very heroic, useful and aiming for a bright future.
