  • Rock! Shock! Pop! At The New York City Comic Con - Part Three - Cosplay-A-Go-Go!





    Love it or hate it, cosplay has exploded at conventions over the last few years and it’s now just as much a reason for some people to attend as the vendors and guests are. In fact, there are even ‘celebrity cosplayers’ showing up at cons these days, putting in special appearances and doing booth signings. So yeah, even if you don’t want to dress up for the day, you can’t ignore the fact that a whole lot of people do. High fives to Reed Pop for creating a safe and friendly environment for anyone and everyone to do their thing and have fun.

    Here’s a few shots that show off the variety of costumes that were making the rounds at NYCC 2014.

      As I suspected...No competition compared to the Japanese cosplay spectacles..A few good examples in there...but some decidedly dodgy ones too....That Mario one is about as dodgy as they come....

  • Rock! Shock! Pop! At The Big Apple Comic Con, July 17th, 2021!

    Yesterday, July 17th, 2021, saw the first proper comic convention come to New York City since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. As anyone who watched the news in 2020 will recall, New York City, due to its density and massive population, got hit extremely hard early on and as such, things were shut down for quite a while to stop the spread and help get the positivity rate under control. Hospitals were filled up, people got sick and far too many people lost their lives. It

    Hey, remember concerts? Concerts were fun. Covid-19 has kind of completely fucked concerts for the time being, who knows when we’ll get to enjoy live music again, so with that in mind, why not relive past glories through pictures of concerts from days past? Let’s do it! A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away known as Portland, Oregon, one Jon Mikl Thor – or just plain old Thor to the masses – played a show at Dante’s, a club on West Bu...

    Running from November 1st, 2019 through December 21st, 2019 at the Sperone Westwater Gallery in Lower Manhattan is Squeaky Flies In The Mud, an exhibition of artwork created by none other than David Lynch. It’s a strange selection of material, as you’d expect if you’re familiar with his work, but fascinating to see and an interesting compliment to the film’s that he’s made. The press release from the gallery reads as follows: “Spero

  • Rock! Shock! Pop! Visits The Archive In Bridgeport, CT

    Writing an article about a store visit isn’t something that we normally do around these here parts, but once in a while there is a reason to make an exception. Case in point? The guys that run Vinegar Syndrome have opened up a brick and mortar retail store called The Archive in Bridgeport, CT. Why does that matter to readers of this site? Because in an age where online sales seem to be killing physical stores (R.I.P. Mondo Kim’s of NYC!), doing something like this

    The first, of what will hopefully be a recurring Five Points Festival kicked off yesterday at Pier 36 on the Lower East Side riverfront of New York City. The two day festival, curated by Clutter Magazine and presented Midtown Comics, “is a collision of toys, comics, and counterculture.” Unlike a regular comic or toy convention, Five Points focuses the more artisanal aspect of the toy and comic industry. As such, most of the attendees had a connection to indy or small...

  • R!S!P! At NYCC 2016 – Comics!

    Despite all the cosplay, movie stars, TV stars, toys, video games and other assorted stuff, comic books are what started all of this and comic books remain, for some of us at least, the most important part of an event like NYCC. As such, we’ve saved the best for last. All the big publishers are, as per the norm, setup in the main hall. Marvel had a lot going on this year, like they always do, promoting Black Panther and Doctor Strange in a big way this year. ...
