One great thrill of attending NY Comic Con is meeting authors and artists. Whether it's waiting in line for hours, or supressing your own bodily functions, it's all worth it to get a chance for a one-on-one meeting with the people who have unlocked the doors to our imaginations. Here is a gallery of some of the great creators at the 2012 NY Comic Con!
Years ago when I first experienced the joys of the weird alternate reality of a “con,” I didn’t quite know how many other people had shared my love of comic books, science fiction, horror films and fantasy novels.
And little did I think the phenomenon would expand to be so huge drawing in 100,000+ people and basically driving the mainstream rather than standing far to the side.
While I loved all things “con” whether they be world-cons, comic cons or fantasy expos, I never got caught up in the intoxicating pleasure of what’s now know as cosplay. But back in the day when I first touched ground in various downtown hotels around the country to share with sf/fantasy/horror fans who did suit up into their favorite characters -- much to the shock and dismay of the mundanes staying in these places in normal garb.
Now every year that the New York Comic Con make its presence felt in mid October, it has brought out the fans and the serious cos-play participants. If there’s any way to find out who’s the hot property of the year or the classic standby just scan the Comic Con crowds.
These fans show their love on their sleaves, in every costume, no matter how expertly crafted, or quickly slapped togethe. New York Comic Con is fandom at it's finest!
