Well hello again my friends and welcome back. We are now at the point in my exploration of the 2018 New York Comic Con that is the day that is not recommended for the weak or faint in constitution because this is the Saturday Day Three part and probably the busiest of all the four days. The overall glut of costumed humanity is difficult to describe but I will try and share some visuals from the madness as I explore the aisles. If you are just joining the presentations on the website, you’re going to want to click HERE first so you are up to speed. With this first installment of the day, I will be wandering around the Artist Alley a bit and seeing some of the wonderful cosplayers. There isn’t going to be much chatter from me since I’d like to test your knowledge on many of the characters. Here we go with the first cosplayer of the day. A gent dressed like Stephen King from “Creepshow”. You see the Number “7” train was not running this weekend which necessitated a long walk to the Javits.
It’s been a couple of years since I had adventured into the Book Expo America, and the first time around I had been able to attend the Blog Expo during the very same week which made the educational time all the more exciting. This year there would be no co-location with the blogging event and the halls of Javits were dedicated to the Book Expo alone. I would be joined by my stalwart colleague Skeleton Pete and our goal would be to focus on the properties that appeal to our mutual reader demographic. Join me on this largely photographic journey and by all means enjoy.
This is just a visual of the outside of the area designated as the Press Room. Essentially this was a cordoned off by a curtain space in the lobby of the Javits that had some tables and electricity and WiFi so we members of the media could keep our Social Networks in tune with the happenings around us. They also had coffee which I found to be a very welcome thing at the hour that we had arrived 🙂
One of the first stops we made was at the signing tables to check in with author D.L. King who would be offering up a new book that she edited and contributed tales to.
Hey there readers are you still with me? Well that is good to hear because I did have a little bit more to share with you from the 2011 Toy Fair and as you can probably tell as we introduce our sixth chapter, there was just too much to discuss about it to give you one single endless piece. Continuing on I ask that you please sit back and enjoy the visuals.
