Now that the NY Comic Con is over and I can see a little bit more clearly after all of that running around, I wanted to share the information about the upcoming weekend fun that is to be had at our neighboring base. Yes my friends, the Fort Hamilton Comic Con is returning to entertain and enthrall you once again. Take a look at the official press stuff that I was sent and know that I shall return at the close.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I noted above, this one is right in our own backyard, okay well, not 100% really in the backyard but it’s so close to the Metal Media Command HQ that I can walk over there in about ten minutes. Located in my beautiful Bay Ridge region, the surrounding space offers spectacular views of the harbor so do make sure to head over early enough to enjoy some of that by day and by night when you leave. Even though I am still loading all of my NYCC images to our websites Official Instagram at the moment you are reading this, I am going to look into attending this event and bringing you the scoop in living color. What do you think about this one? Are you close enough to investigate and does it pique your own interest? Let me know in the comments section below.
