So here I am once more in the playground of the costumed hearts, One more experience, one more entry in a diary, self-photographed – You’ll have to pardon my slight revision of the lyrical masterpiece that is “Script For A Jester’s Tear” by Marillion from back in 1983. We are here though and you’ve arrived at the Day Four offerings from the 2019 New York Comic Con. If you’ve missed any of these fun posts that ran before this one please click HERE to be on point. This last day is going to be a bit of a mixed-bag since I’ve taken care of almost all the things that I wanted to do over the last three days. Let’s go.
Last year, both “Action Comics” and “Detective Comics” from DC Comics reached their milestone 1000th issue and to celebrate them had a wealth of variant covers for fans to scramble to collect. Clicking the highlighted text will bring those articles up in case you’re still hunting for a particular variant. Now its Marvel’s turn to celebrate as their milestone “Marvel Comics” #1000 will soon hit the stands and they’ve unveiled a crop of variant covers for the issue. As new reveals come to light I will add them into this same post, let’s go.
The Press Release:
In celebration of Marvel’s 80th anniversary this year, scores of comic creators – some Marvel icons, some first-timers – are assembling for an epic comic book story in honor of the very first issue of MARVEL COMICS.

Hello readers and welcome back to the continuing presentations from my recent visit to the NY Comic Con of 2013; I am still hard at work delivering all the wondrous findings and visuals from the second day of the convention and if you are just joining us on the program, please know that I have broken down my images into fifty per posting. Let’s get a move on shall we….
I don’t really like starting off a chapter with a Cosplay that I do not immediately recognize but the Manga stuff is too hard to follow. This young lady had an impressive battle stance and hence gets the honor just the same.
