Photo Recap: Comic Con 2017

Fall is my favorite time of the year for a number of reasons. Most of my favorite shows are back, NFL/NBA, halloween, hoodies and ofcourse, Comic Con. This weekend at the Javits Center didn’t disappoint. In the 3 years that I’ve managed to go, it never has.  Free stuff, custom artwork, panels on your favorite shows/games, collectibles, behind the scene look at things to come, full blown escape rooms, you name it. There wasn’t even enough time to cover it all. Yet somehow, I’m still exhausted.

If you haven’t gone before, I strongly suggest you make atleast 1 visit. It’s beyond worth it. And then, there’s the cosplay.  Half the time you’re too busy just admiring the amazing effort some people put into their costumes that you’ll forget to take a photo. I’m talking from experience. Regardless, if you couldn’t make it out this year, I took as many photos as possible to share the experience. Enjoy!

NYC Comic Con 2016 – The Cosplay

I didn’t take nearly as many pics this year as I did last year. However, I definitely had as much fun. Many of the same companies returned this year with new displays (DC Comics held the main floor down with their Wonder Woman showcase, Viz Media had their anime section, Netflix/Marvel with Iron Fist promo, etc.) Countless costumes, and a HUGE spike in Harley Quinn cosplay for obvious reasons. One of the biggest, if not the biggest highlights was finally getting a shot to be on Legends of the Hidden Temple. My childhood couldn’t be happier. Check out a few of the pics I did manage to take.

There’s also a mini prize pack / contest later this week. Stay tuned for that. And yes, that’s me as Deadshot.

NYC Comic Con 2015 – The Cosplay

I missed Comic Con 2014. I made a post briefly touching on that last year. (You can check that here.) I had no interest in doing that 2 years in a row. With that said, it was everything I expected. Possibly more. Whether or not it’s just a fad for many, we’re in the era of the nerds and geeks. Everything from Blockbuster Superhero films, to TV shows, netflix specials, etc. It’s safe to say, the world has finally fell love in love with the sub-culture.

And it’s great.

I have a new found appreciation for what Cosplayers do too. There’s so much effort that goes into creating some of these costumes. Seriously, some of you are amazing. Even if you aren’t a fan of ‘comics’, it’s still a great time. Besides, there’s still lots to do. Panels, giveaways, artists to meet, video games, etc.  Comic Con is huge. (With more than 150,000 people in attendance, way to state the obvious, right?) But what I mean is, with the sheer amount of things you can get into, a 1 day pass couldn’t do proper justice as I’ve come to learn this year.

Enough of my yapping. Below you’ll find all the cool people who were nice enough to pose for a picture and stay in character. (ie Batman and Capt. Jack Sparrow) I’ll be there next year and I think you should too.

I didn’t make it to Comic Con.

Holy Time Travel Batman!

For whatever reason, not making it there shook up some memories of me as a kid. How many are old enough to remember the classic Batman & Robin TV show staring Adam West?  Looking back, yeah it was pretty cheesy. But that’s after judging it not only as an adult but being immersed in all the advances we’ve made in media. (The first episode of The Flash pretty much ran circles around it visually. Ha, run.) Either way, as a nod to my childhood, I figure I’d Google some of those classic Batman action figures. Take a look.

The good ol’ days. Man, I’ve always wanted that Bat mobile. Things went up a notch when we got Batman the Animated Series. I wish it didn’t end (cancelled?). So good.

You know I had those too, right? Good times. Lot’s of fond memories. Maybe, no, I WILL be at Comic Con next year. You have to go atleast once. No excuses. (Join me?) Finally, for nostalgia purposes, there’s no way to end this post without playing the intro music one time. NANANANANA …. *goes on for infinity*


POW! WAM! ZOK! OOOOOOF!
