Okay my friends, I am back with one more chapter from the Day One visuals from the 2018 New York Comic Con.

I will continue along in The Block which was where I left off. As with the preceding chapters, I am not talking continuously and only as inspired. In addition to some cool vendors we have a lot of awesome cosplayers in this installment.
The Press Release:
Washington, DC area metal band A Sound of Thunder and award-winning comic book publisher Valiant Entertainment are teaming up for “Second Lives” – an all-new EP inspired by the paranormal investigator known as Doctor Mirage!
The “Second Lives” 5-song EP is being offered exclusively via Kickstarter as a companion to A Sound of Thunder’s new album “It Was Metal.” The EP features original cover art by THE DEATH-DEFYING DOCTOR MIRAGE series artist Roberto de la Torre.

Check this item out that comes care of Valiant Entertainment.

Since next Saturday is the 2017 “Free Comic Book Day”, I’ve culled together a presentation of some of the titles that I am hoping to snag at my participating retailer. I figured since their is one more New Comic Wednesday between now and then, that it would be a good idea to showcase a few titles so you can make sure the place where you purchase your own titles will have them if they are participating in “Free Comic Book Day” at all. If they are not, I suggest that you use this time to peruse the official website of the event to find a store close to you that does. The information comes straight from each companies press items along with the images so let’s get on down to it.
