New York Comic Con Returns! Day One at the Con

It’s that time of year, my favorite time in New York City. The weather gets a bit cooler, post-season baseball is getting into full swing, and hockey and college football both have returned.  Oh and it’s time for my yearly nerd pilgrimage to the far west side of Manhattan, to New York Comic Con.  As a bonus, the city has finally completed the 7 train extension, and now you can take the subway all the way to 34th and 11th, just a stone’s throw from the Jacob Javits Center (and the new station is is quite the site) Thursdays used … Continue reading

Not many take it to that next level of actually producing films featuring themselves as their favorite characters, picking up the story of their favorite show after a premature cancellation. (OK, Star Trek fans not withstanding). Colin, the Boy Wonder, is part of a team of Cosplayers/Actors/Writers that produce Young Justice: Abduction, and The Apartment.
