  • R!S!P! At NYCC 2016 – Walking The Show





    First you have to get there. The trains get more and more crowded the closer you get to the Javitz Center and once you get in, no matter how many times you attend, it’s instantly overwhelming.





    And then there’s Wonder Woman – everywhere! With the movie coming out soon, DC has the hype machine moving full steam ahead. Not only where there an awesome tribute booth set up on the main floor showing off some great original art (including an awesome piece from the late Darwyn Cooke) from throughout the decades as well as some props for the film, but near the main entrance by the DC Comics booth, there were a bunch of costumes on display. Most of these were from the new movie, but hey, check out the old Lynda Carter duds from the TV show – she was even represented in Jelly Bean form!









































    Also impressive was the PCS Toys booth. These aren’t really toys per se in that you wouldn’t really play with this stuff, rather it’s high end collectible good – check out the detail on some of this stuff, it’s incredible. Street Fighter! The Howling! Mortal Kombat!

















    Funimation had a booth set up where you could get your picture taken with Godzilla to celebrate the release of the new movie. They also had their regular booth set up as well, selling DVD and Blu-ray release of their massive anime catalogue.









    All sorts of interesting stuff to look at, to buy, to spend lots and lots and lots of money on or to stand in line to get to!













    Outside there were some pretty interesting displays set up for South Park, to commemorate the twentieth season.













    As for Ash Vs. The Evil Dead? There was an ‘Ash’s Cabin’ display set up last year but this year? Much bigger, better and more interesting. And you never know who you’re going to see pop up from behind the cabin when you’re poking around…





























    If you don’t mind standing in line and scheduling things around them, panels can be fun. For example, the Death Race 2050 panel with Manu Bennett and Roger Corman. They showed off the trailer, did a fun Q&A and talk about the movie, then showed the first ten minutes of the film that is due out in January of 2017. After that, Corman and Bennett did a signing!









    Over at the Live stage there was pretty much a revolving door of guests going on – at any given time you might see interviews with comic creators, Power Rangers, TV show stars or the mighty Adam West!











    Heck, if you play your kids right you might even stumble upon a Luc Besson autograph signing!



    Really, there’s so much to see and do that this piece can’t do it justice. It’s exhausting, but it’s worth it.

  • 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...

    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. ...
