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.
Hey gang, its nice to see you once again. I’m going to keep my intro short since there is plenty of work to post today but we are indeed at another chapter of the NY Comic Con 2017 coverage. Part 5 will be the last of the stuff from the Day One adventures and if 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. Let’s get a move on with these two lovely cosplayers.
Fans of the band Starset and Marvel Comics will be excited about the collaboration between the bands lead singer Dustin Bates and prolific scribe Peter David. Check out the cover, the press release and some sample pages below.
The Press Release:
New York, NY-June 15, 2017- Marvel Comics is proud to announce a unique collaboration with Dustin Bates, lead singer and founder of the multi-media, modern rock band Starset, along with fan-favorite writer, Peter David (Ben Reilly: Scarlett Spider, Spider-Verse) for an all-new original 88-page graphic novel, THE PROX TRANSMISSIONS.
Inspired by the likes of Nikola Tesla and Carl Sagan, Starset’s albums, along with videos, websites, novels and one-of-a-kind live performances, were created as part of the over-arching concept, The Starset Society. Where science and fiction collide, The Starset Society is dedicated to publicizing emerging, near-future technologies and investigating their inevitable social, economic, political, and philosophical impact on society. Through this enlightening exploration, The Starset Society has teamed up with Marvel Comics to produce a one-of-a-kind adventure like nothing seen before.
A secret transmission from the far reaches of the galaxy falls into the hands of SETI radio astronomer Dr. Stephen Browning. His world begins to unravel as he discovers the cryptic message including information of advanced technology and a dire warning from the future. After Browning seeks aid of brilliant-yet-impetuous playboy Dr. Aston Wise, the two set off on an epic journey to discover the meaning of the transmission, only to discover that they are pawns in a much bigger game. Humanity hangs in the balance as powerful forces vie for control of the future, with only Wise and Browning to stop them.

Hello there my friends, I am back with another chapter in my Five Points Festival coverage. You’ve arrived at Part Three so I’m hoping that you’ve seen the previous installments because I’m wandering through in an aisle by aisle fashion. Let’s get on down to business shall we.
Hey look its Sasha Yosselani. You probably recognize her from my NYCC posts over the last couple of years.
Since I still have a lot to do I am going to leave this introduction piece as a very simple “Welcome to the continuing presentations from the 2016 NY Comic Con”. I’m still dishing out my “Day Three” stuff because with this being the Saturday session there is a LOT to see and document. If you are just now joining us please click on THIS LINK first since it will bring you a rundown of all the chapters that have been posted before this one. Now without any further adieu, here is “Day Three: Part Two” 🙂 I’ll chime in here and there but mostly will let the photos do the talking.
