Greetings my dear readers and how are we doing today? I know what you’re thinking…..how can I possibly still be serving up the 2019 New York Comic Con content so many days after the event has ended and well…..I just am 🙂 As you can see, this is Part Two of Day Four and we are officially down to the wire now with only two more installments to share with you. I admit that even I am running out of steam because I’ve been trying to keep my intro comments vibrant and energetic. If you’re only now joining us so late in the game please click HERE to see whats come before.
Greetings my friends and welcome back to another exciting chapter of my coverage of the 2018 New York Comic Con. As I’ve noted in an earlier chapter, this is my 9th straight year of attending the convention and I am blown away by how big its become. It’s the highlight of many a geeks year and I can’t blame them since there is so much to enjoy. To keep your focus, I’ve begun to break the days down into chapters and to see any of the stuff that’s come before this narrative just click HERE to open a new tab with all of the posts that have gone live on the website. In the preceding chapter, I lauded the benefits of the Cheerios cereal found in the Family Room and here is the box that I secured my stash in during the days wander.
Generally speaking, I start my first day coverage in “The Block” but so far today I was being aimless and drifting about from section to section. I wanted to see some artist friends so quickly headed to the Artist Alley area.
The legendary Marv Wolfman was at the convention this year. I never met him before and was happy to get a chance to say hello.

Okay so here we are again and before this installment gets underway let me thank you for sticking with this group of narratives for so many parts already. To me as a photographer and journalist, the NY Comic Con is one of the most daunting of events to cover because its not only massive in scope but its also taking over other locations as well. Sure we have the Press Badge as our credentials but that doesn’t let you jump lines to cover panels and appearances, you have to arrive early as all heck to make sure you are inside those. As result, I stick to the Javits Center generally and explore as much as possible as you have seen in the past posts. Day Three is the Saturday session and the most attended historically speaking. Part 1 of this days overview will begin in a moment and find me exploring Artist Alley and some other regions. If you missed anything that came before this post, click on THIS LINK to open a battery of content to peruse. Shall we?
I’m also going to keep featuring all of the cosplayers that stop and talk to me because they are awesome and deserve to be celebrated.
Hey gang, its nice to see you once again. I’m going to keep my intro short since there is plenty of work to post today but we are indeed at another chapter of the NY Comic Con 2017 coverage. Part 5 will be the last of the stuff from the Day One adventures and if you’ve missed any of the posts that preceded this one, just click on THIS LINK as it will open a battery of content for you. Let’s get a move on with these two lovely cosplayers.
