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.

DC Comics Reveals “Action Comics” #1000 Retailer Variants

A few days ago I shared the variant covers that span the years that “Action Comics” has been on the stands. These clever editions took a decade each to showcase the adventures of Superman, the Man Of Steel. Hopefully you saw that post and if not, just click HERE for the overview. You’re going to need this when you visit your local comic book retailer next month when issue #1000 hits the stands. In addition to those variants, many of the retailers will have their own exclusive editions and I’ve secured a stockpile of images for you to peruse. I’ve named the retailer and the artist involved in the variant cover and I’ve started with the two popular comic retail giants of our own Metropolis and then the rest are in alphabetical order. Check it out.

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

Greetings Mes Amis, it’s nice to see you here once more as I present to you in living color, another chapter from my coverage of the 2017 NY Comic Con.  I’m getting down to the wire on the Day One stuff and this is Part 4 from that first day.  I should stress that the actual NYCC ended yesterday but since I only post about 50 images in each narrative for ease of your eyes, you will be seeing these posts until I get to the point of there aren’t any more.  lf you’ve missed any of the posts that preceded this one, just click on THIS LINK as it will open a battery of content for you.  With this chapter I’m covering a lot of ground and going wherever the creative spirit moves me.  Let’s begin with this awesome homage to Marvel Comics “Godzilla King Of The Monsters” with Reptar from Nickolodeon.  If this was a shirt I’d wear it.

Exploring NY Comic Con 2016: Day Two, Part Three (10/7/2016)

Hey there my fiends, I’m glad to see you back here again as I continue along into the visual findings from the 2016 NY Comic Con. I’m still on the “Day Two” stuff and up to our third chapter of the presentation. That brings us to the 8th in total so far and since I have to look more into the other days folders I cannot discern how many we shall end up doing when its all said and done. If you’re just joining the program of presentations, may I suggest that you click on THIS LINK first since it will bring you a rundown of all the chapters that have been posted before this one. I find that it’s always best to start this adventure from the beginning and as new chapter get added they will present here as well. Let’s get this geeking out party started!!! I’ll be chiming in every now and then but not all the time. I’m talked out 🙂

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.
