By now you’ve probably surmised that the end of these installments is drawing near and you are correct in the assumption. Of our Day Four posts, this is the second to last one so if you’re just now joining us at the penultimate chapter of my 2018 New York Comic Con posts, I’d ask that you click HERE first to see all of the chapters that have come before this latest one. I’m in the Artist Alley a bit during this chapter so a lot of talented people to take note of and thank for their contributions to the comics medium. Most of them have their names in the photo as well to eliminate unnecessary discussion. I’ll try to find their websites, Facebook or Twitter Official accounts once all is said and done. Let’s do this.
Let’s keep this party going as the 2018 New York Comic Con coverage continues. If you didn’t see any of the other chapters, please click HERE so you can enjoy it all as a single report. I’m going to be spending some time down in the Artist Alley section and our first stop is the table of Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez who created the “Ricanstruction” comic book. Money from this title is going to aid the people of Puerto Rico for hurricane recovery.
Back in late June, I shared the Press Release about an upcoming Marvel Comics series called “Spider-Geddon” you can read that HERE if you like, but if you are pressed for time, the brief summary in an email I just received lined it out like this…
“Featuring new villains and old villains, shocking deaths and shocking returns, and all the Spider characters you can fit into one larger-than-life tale, this is a Marvel Spider-Event not to be missed! Don’t miss the opportunity to dive into this fresh new adventure October 10th, when SPIDER-GEDDON #1 hits comic shops!”
This post will showcase any of the first issue variant covers that I recieve along with a brief part of those emails since I anticipate that the above will likely be repeated as a standard across any of the messages. Since time will not permit a brand-new post per cover, I will edit accordingly and make sure the tags are on point for easier reference. Here we go.
September 5, 2018: REVENGE OF THE SPIDER-VERSE! Marvel is excited to celebrate SPIDER-GEDDON #1 from Christos Gage and Jorge Molina with a new spider-punk variant cover from superstar artist Wil Sliney, with colors by Frankie D’Armata!
Okay so here we are again and before this installment gets underway let me thank you for sticking with this group of narratives for so many parts already. To me as a photographer and journalist, the NY Comic Con is one of the most daunting of events to cover because its not only massive in scope but its also taking over other locations as well. Sure we have the Press Badge as our credentials but that doesn’t let you jump lines to cover panels and appearances, you have to arrive early as all heck to make sure you are inside those. As result, I stick to the Javits Center generally and explore as much as possible as you have seen in the past posts. Day Three is the Saturday session and the most attended historically speaking. Part 1 of this days overview will begin in a moment and find me exploring Artist Alley and some other regions. If you missed anything that came before this post, click on THIS LINK to open a battery of content to peruse. Shall we?
I’m also going to keep featuring all of the cosplayers that stop and talk to me because they are awesome and deserve to be celebrated.
Alright so are you still with me or have you had enough? Good, I knew you had it in you. So here I am once more with another chapter in a seemingly never-ending batch of presentations from the 2016 NY Comic Con. I’m up to Part Three of Day Three (which sounds kind of nice to say) and I’m in the Artist Alley area still so a lot of awesome people who bring you the comics stuff to enjoy. 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. Day Three is the Saturday session of the NYCC and often the most congested in the Main Expo floor so its a general practice of mine to be in Artist Alley for this one. A lot of the artists have their names in the images so I don’t need to chime in unless I feel it necessary. Here we go.
