NYCC 2014 – Day Two, Comics, Conversation, and Cosplay

ComicConOverview4

Friday brings the first full day of programing at NYCC, as comic and pop culture fans from around the world descend on the Jacob Javits Center, and regular New Yorkers don’t even look up from their iPhones as they share a subway ride with Wolverine, Batman, and the Walking Dead to midtown Manhattan.

Has it been a year already? Fall has always been a favorite time of year of mine,  there are non-geek reasons why,  I love College Football (GO BLUE!) and the Yankees are always in the post-season, and late September/early October is just  the best time to walk and explore all New York City has to offer. But you don’t care about that.  You want to hear about New York Comic Con – don’t you? Yep, … Continue reading
