Ghost Rider

This past weekend in New York City, ReedPop, the folks behind New York Comic Con, held their second annual Special Edition: NYC Comic Con, which gets back down to the source of it all – Comics!

COmicCon-Overview-8

  Four days of nerdvana came to a close earlier today.  Comics, TV, movies, video games, cosplay and all sorts of fun was to be had, as over 100,000 fans came out for Family Day at New York Comic Con.     It was a low key day for me, after a late night out, celebrating friend of Geeksville Aleta Pardalis‘ second place finish in the TV and Film category in the Eastern Championships of Cosplay.
