Exploring Big Apple Comic Con 2018: Part 1

Considering how many of these conventions that we’ve been attending for the sake of the Geek Media, it’s pretty safe to assume that we love the creativity and colorful displays to be found at events such as New York Comic Con, WinterCon and now the Big Apple Comic Con which was happening here in NYC just this past weekend.

Though we would have preferred to attend on the Saturday portion of the weekend, the only provisions that were offered were for Sunday so that would be the day of the exploration.  PiercingMetal hasn’t been to BACC in a couple of years and it was based on my scheduling of other things at the same time but now its time to get back into the NY Groove with the coolness and the cosplay.  Let’s go.

I’m just going to jump into the fray since my MTA journey to the city was an arduous one. Sunday train travel has been a beast of late and its become a reason I tend to avoid the day in Manhattan if at all possible. Oh yeah, this is Josh Adams, son of Neal. We’ll get to him later.

Exploring Big Apple Comic Con 2016: Part 1

Yesterday, New York City hosted the Big Apple Comic Con over at the Penn Plaza Pavilion and this fun-filled comic book convention is the brainchild of the one and only Mike Carbo. I spent a few hours at the Con shooting photos of both the vendors and the wonderfully creative cosplayers and here is a batch of my visuals. Enjoy. I’ll start off my presentation with a few pics of the great Neal Adams who had a large number of tables downstairs on the lower level. It’s always great to see Neal and the family.

PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2014: Day 4 – Part 2 (10/12/2014)

Welcome back my friends to the posts that never seemed to end about the 2014 edition of NY Comic Con. You have safely arrived at the second chapter of our Day Four coverage and I am afraid that this is our very last from the adventures. I’ll admit that I am slightly slagged today after three days at Con already along with three Metal concerts on top of them but here I am just the same looking to bring you some visuals that I hope spark your interest. Let’s get on down to it with this Cosplay of a character I didn’t know offhand and thought was The Scourge from Marvel Comics. It was not.

PiercingMetal Goes to Big Apple Comic Con (2011): Chapter One

Having attended the NY Comic Con back in October of last year, an adventure that can referenced HERE, made me curious about what I would find at the Wizardworld Big Apple Comic Con when it would come through town during this Metal Month of May. These conventions are usually filled with musicians and entertainers along with the stellar talent that is doing the mainstream as well as independent comic books. The past two weeks have been stocked with musical adventures as bands like Destruction, UFO and Whitesnake all had visited our fair city. Last night was Blackfield with Anathema and tonight would be Apocalyptica if the world didn’t end like the crazy people were saying it would. Only time would tell, so join me on this potentially last report from the realm.
