Hey my fandom fiends welcome back to our fourth and final chapter of the Day Two adventuring at the 2012 NY Comic Con. I’ve been having a blast so far and will keep my summaries quick and to the point so you can appreciate all the images a little easier. Let’s get down to business.

Continuing along with my findings during my “Day Two” wanderings at Comic Con, please enjoy the vast colors and creativity or the incredible Cosplayers and some of the awesomely talented individuals who were working the various booths.
Continuing along with the observations at NY Comic Con 2012, I pick up where I just left off in my first installment from the Day Two portion of the massive event. I felt like keeping up with the mostly Cosplay display for awhile and also would head down to the Artist Alley for a little while. Let’s begin with this killer Nick Fury. After the shot I thanked him for his part in the recent NYC conflict.
I have to admit that I was raring to go for the second day session of NY Comic Con and perhaps it was partially based on the dose of Music Scribe energy that was infused into me by seeing two amazing KISS appearances and the fact that the first day is not a super long one anyway. Yet here I was heading down to the Javits and talking to those around me as we plotted and planned for the adventure. My plan would be for some serious exploration today and get a lot out of the way since the Saturday session is always mayhem, and as I wandered closer, I met a charming Elektra Cosplayer. Nice girl who did a fine job on her outfit and even had a pair of Sai with her. My other plan was to get a lot of Instagram shots today and if I did not mention I was doing this in yesterdays summation I apologize. Let’s get rocking.
Welcome to our third and final chapter from the Day One NY Comic Con wanderings. It was a very productive day and we met a lot of cool people and saw some awesome things. I wanted to keep the images to fifty per post but I ran out before we hit that with this chapter but don’t worry I still have a three day span coming up. Let’s begin the visuals with this awesome Darth Vader holiday ornament. Yeah I want this. It’s too awesome.
Welcome back my fine comic book loving friends. Continuing on with our several chapters to go infiltration of the 2012 NY Comic Con, I pick up where chapter one left off with the next fifty images of the observations from the first day. Today’s part of the Con actually only started at 3pm and would run until 9pm which is the latest ever that I have found this event running. As previously mentioned this was Press, Professionals and 4 Day Pass Holders Day.
Let’s get this party started shall we? Now, before I get into my many chapter posts about the 2012 NY Comic Con I want to tell you that it already has been a killer week for this reporter. All good things of course as we had a couple of concerts with Three Friends (doing their Gentle Giant set) and the mighty KISS performing at Live On Letterman in the famous Ed Sullivan Theater. This morning I hit a special Q&A session with KISS over at the Sirius XM Studios and of course all of those adventures will become posts as soon as I wrangle all the stuff together. Now it was time to get my butt in gear for the first part of Comic Con which was the Press/Professionals and VIP ticket holders day. This is the second year in a row that the fans mingled in with the Press and Pros as opposed to our kind being given a few hours of peace to observe and make notes about what we needed to see at the Con. The new model gets more fans into the room and now allows the event to span four days.
Well, the day is finally here as the once looming NY Comic Con 2012 is now right here upon us and I am super excited about being able to attend as a member of the press once again. With this being the case, the core of the blogs and reports will be focused on this massive event for the next couple of days but I will do my best to get in some of the additional things that I have been a party to for good measure. If you still need a ticket you are out of luck my friends because this thing is sold out completely.
Last year I focused a lot more on the Costumed Players or Cosplay as they like to say and that was a LOT of fun to do. It was different and showcased the fans who make this stuff all the more special. Maybe I will do that again because it was also a way for me to get more folks interested in what we are doing with the blog and the main website. I’m not much of a planner when it comes to Comic Con and instead wander its halls by the seat of my pants. Maybe that is a bad thing to do but oh well, the task still gets done at the end of the day.
Oh yes, and the Social Networking will be happening for sure whenever I can do something and I plan to do Tweets, Fan Page Facebook postings and even some Instagrams. If you need any of those links you can find them right here on the blog so we encourage you to follow us and enjoy the ride. I’m double excited about today because before heading to Comic Con I get to go to SiriusXM and listen to a Town Hall session being done with the almighty KISS. I’ve mentioned that their my favorite band and yes I will be posting stuff about that as well when I can sit down and knock something out for you.
See you at NY Comic Con my friends. Don’t hesitate to say hello if you recognize me. I will be dressed as me for the Con. Figured that was the easiest outfit to sport LOL.
At the time that you are reading this post, it is only two weeks away….. Can you believe it? I know that it shocks me because it seemed like only yesterday that I was putting the final touches on the last chapter of my multiple part coverage of the 2011 New York Comic Con and that was one hell of an adventure to bring to you here on PiercingMetal Musings. I’m especially excited because now that I have secured my Official Press Credentials to attend, I will be doing this for the third year in a row and I can hardly wait to see what is going to be in front of me over the course of those four days. Now I am wondering who is going to check it out this time from The Metal Republic? Are you dressing up as anyone in particular? Is there any one event that you are looking most forward to? Well, whatever you will be doing just make sure that your calendar is clear on October 14th through October 17th because that is when this year’s event will be taking over the Jacob Javits Center.
This year’s event proves to have some amazing guests which include Adam West and Burt Ward (the original sixties Batman series stars) and folks like Neal Adams and Robert Kirkman and many, many more. It’s really too numerous to list actually but you can check out more via the link right below. I decided to post this little two week to go blog posting to find out if any of our readers were going and to give a final reminder to those who still need to get tickets provided any full weekend passes remain. If this is you then I suggest that you hurry because last year the full weekend passes sold out very quickly. I would hate to know that despite our calendar of events having this listed well in advance that you somehow missed out by waiting until the last minute. So get that overtime in now and save those coins because you are going to need them to spend on all the coolness that you will be finding at the Con this year. I don’t have any insight as to how I will cover the event this year but I do think that I will mirror some of my past convention practices. It was a blast sharing all of the costumed fans and fiends for you and while I always make note of the Metal t-shirts that I see around the convention, perhaps this time around I do a special feature to keep my postings different. Only time will tell right? See you then but now back to the regularly scheduled Metal programming.

Perhaps I should sound the trumpets because we have arrived at the final chapter installment of my comprehensive NY Comic Con 2011 coverage. I tried to get a LOT of photos for your perusal this time around as I know you like that kind of thing but I had to admit that even I didn’t think that I would end up with twelve different blog postings about it when it was all finished. So without any further adieu let’s get this party started.
