Considering how many of these conventions that we’ve been attending for the sake of the Geek Media, it’s pretty safe to assume that we love the creativity and colorful displays to be found at events such as New York Comic Con, WinterCon and now the Big Apple Comic Con which was happening here in NYC just this past weekend.
Though we would have preferred to attend on the Saturday portion of the weekend, the only provisions that were offered were for Sunday so that would be the day of the exploration. PiercingMetal hasn’t been to BACC in a couple of years and it was based on my scheduling of other things at the same time but now its time to get back into the NY Groove with the coolness and the cosplay. Let’s go.
I’m just going to jump into the fray since my MTA journey to the city was an arduous one. Sunday train travel has been a beast of late and its become a reason I tend to avoid the day in Manhattan if at all possible. Oh yeah, this is Josh Adams, son of Neal. We’ll get to him later.
You probably know him most for being Mr. Peterman on the hit comedy “Seinfeld” but that’s John O’Hurley and he graciously obliged me with an image to use in our visual overview.
He’s done a whole bunch of roles over the years but I know of him as Jonah Hex from the “Legends Of Tomorrow” series on the CW. It’s Jonathan Schaech.
Hey look, it’s Eric Kilmonger from the “Black Panther” movie hitting the BACC. Nice cosplay sir but who might those lovely ladies be?
They are The Hashtag Queens. They were repping their sound (since its a musical endeavor of some kind) and also handing out this cool little comic book.
They are the Rogue Alliance. Bringing Jedi Justice every day.
I’m finding down this chapter with some lovely ladies of the Spiderverse. The first lass appears to be a Black Cat/Spider-Man mashup while the other is a Mary Jane Watson/Spider-Man mashup. Well done ladies.
I’ll stop here to give us a breather and also because there are some other things to call your attention to. As these kind of convention reports are not really new to our readers, there is still the chance that some newbies are flowing in and we want them to know that were are being very active on our social networks of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I hope that you will show your support of our efforts by following and liking the various posts that you will find on the links.

Update: In 2021, a photo gallery video was created from this event and uploaded to the Official YouTube Channel for PiercingMetal. We hope that site visitors enjoy this different way of presenting our adventure and ask them to kindly “subscribe” the the Channel, click the notification bell and leave us a topical comment on the clip to show support.
