The famed New York Comic Con has returned to the Halls of Javits after the pandemic forced the 2020 event to be postponed and go virtual for their “Metaverse” online experience. This years event will be following and enforcing strict Covid-19 protocols and require all attendees to be masked and not just with their respective cosplays. I am excited to announce that PiercingMetal will once more be among the members of the press exploring the floor and bringing the experience to your desktops or mobile devices if you have not decided to join this time around or are too far away.
