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:

Fans of our convention explorations and who have been watching our regional events calendar know that this past weekend was when both the Liberty City Anime Con and the Flame Con were happening. After some productive time at LCAC, it was time for me to head over to Flame Con and see what was going on there. For those in the unaware, Flame Con is the world’s largest queer comic con and it was not only returning for its third year event but also had moved to Manhattan and would take place at The Sheraton. Last year it was down near my old college at the Brooklyn Marriott and I didn’t mind that since it was a quick trip home but I digress, that is a tale already spoken so let’s get down to the new.
Yes there was a bag and utility belt check because that is the world we live in today I’m afraid. To me this is not an issue and I would rather be safe wherever I go. Nice work folks. So as you might know, this will be mostly a photographic display but I will be loading in as many of the folks website links or Official Facebook/Instagram accounts for you to follow them. Enjoy.
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.
