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 WinterCon 2017 @ Resorts World Casino (Part 3)

wintercon 2017

Welcome back once more my friends, you have safely arrived at the third and final chapter of our coverage of the 2017 “WinterCon” which takes place over at the Resorts World Casino in Queens, NY. It’s a cool place and right next to the Aquaduct Racetrack and of course there is the actual casino floor if you care to try your luck (if of legal age to do so that is) but I digress. If you are new to the website and this kind of overview then you might have missed the two previous chapters. Those visitors can click HERE to see what they missed and catch up with the rest of us. I’m picking up where I left off the last time which was on the outside deck where all the cosplayers were milling about. It was cold for me and I had a jacket so I don’t know how those folks in spandex were dealing with it.

Exploring WinterCon 2017 @ Resorts World Casino (Part 1)

Now that both the annual NY Comic Con and brand new Anime NYC conventions have come and gone, you’re probably thinking that you are done with this kind of event for year but you would be wrong. Yes my friends, WinterCon was here and once again being held at the spacious Resorts World Casinos in Queens. I enjoyed myself last year at the event which I documented HERE for those interested and was happy to be returning to see what this year had in store for me.  As I walked over the casino floor to the main event upstairs, I met a mixed bag of creative Cosplay with some DC Villains, a Doctor and some of the X-Men.  Who says we all can’t get along.  Let’s go.

Exploring NY Comic Con 2017: Day Three (Part 4)

I think by now you know the drill. I keep serving up the coverage from the 2017 NY Comic Con and you keep on enjoying it (well, I hope you do at least). Sorry my friends, as we are now at the final chapter of the Day Three explorations I am starting to feel a sense of “convention burnout”. This will be the last bunch of visuals from the Saturday of the convention so if you haven’t seen the preceding chapters please click on THIS LINK to open everything related to this event on a new page. You don’t have to start reading these from the beginning but I will admit that its a lot more fun when you do it like that. Here we go…..AGAIN 🙂

Exploring NY Comic Con 2016: Day Four, Part One (10/9/2016)

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.
