The start of October immediately calls to mind a number of fall related events and things—Halloween, pumpkin spice, Oktober Fest, fall foliage, and much more. But in New York City, especially for the comic book enthusiasts, it also means Comic Con is back in town at the Javits Center. I continue my annual tradition of attending New York Comic Con on a single Saturday pass. Here’s a recap of what I saw, did, and bought at the largest attraction in the Big Apple.
October in New York City is always an exciting month. Aside from the various events happening throughout October in the city, like Oktober Fest events and the Greenwich Village Parade on Halloween, it’s also the month dedicated to comic geeks—New York Comic Con! The convention happened this past weekend and I was able to attend again this year for just one day on Saturday.
When New York Comic Con descends upon the Javits Center, it almost feels as if the circus has come into town. Oh what a circus it is filled with parades of Harley Quinns and Luigis of all shapes and sizes. It’s impossible to contain the energy and excitement that’s felt near and around the convention center. October is the month locals and out of towners look forward to each year to be a part of the geekiest and nerdiest love fest you’ll ever see, and attending just one day of the convention is still enough for me to get my fix every year.
I’m a season pro of these comic conventions, having gone for about five years, and the experience hasn’t gotten stale for me. Not yet anyway. The energy and excitement near and inside the convention is undeniable. Everyone is happy to be there and we’re all holding our breaths in anticipation of what we’ll be seeing and experiencing this year. Without further delay, here’s a full breakdown of what my convention experience has been like when New York Comic Con hit the Big Apple last weekend.
Another successful New York Comic Con came and went this past weekend. This year, I have been fortunate enough to score 3-day passes to the biggest geek love fest our city has proudly embraced and marketed the hell out of in the last few years. Purchasing the coveted tickets gets increasingly difficult year after year, as this convention has grown in popularity and demand over time. I thank a higher power who seems to love me and enable me to go to the convention year after year since I haven’t missed one yet when I first started going a few years ago.
Every October is the one month New York City becomes geek mecca when Comic Con comes rolling into town. It’s the social event of the year for all geeks to unite and show their passion for their favorite TV show, comics, or video games. This is also the best place for people watching, as hard core cosplayers come out from all over to either show off their creations or just dress up for fun. And just like previous years, I have been fortunate enough to attend New York Comic Con this past weekend at the Jacob Javits Center once again.
New York Comic Con came and went this past weekend and it has been a blast as always. The more times I keep going to this convention, the more I feel as if this convention is getting more crowded every year. As much as I barely want to tolerate the congested streets of New York City on a regular basis, I’m willing to put up with the crowds at NYCC. There’s always lots to see and do at the convention, and I’m going to detail the biggest highlights of my convention weekend with photos!
I’m back from vacation feeling refreshed and ready to bring you more content on my blog. It just so happens that this weekend is New York Comic Con and I’ll be attending it once again! I’ve been going to NYCC for the last three or four years maybe? I would consider myself a seasoned convention goer by now. Well, I do need to expand my convention attendance beyond NYCC, but I’ll get there. Conventions like NYCC, no matter where you go, is literally the social event of the year for all geeks all over the world. It’s considered geek mecca. It’s our sacred place, our oasis, our––well, you get the idea.
This past weekend was New York Comic Con which took place at the Jacob Javits Center. It was that time of the year where all the geeks were united under one roof. My friend and I got three day passes and we were set for the whole weekend.
When attending the Cons, it was always a sensory overload. So many sights and sounds to take in all at once. It was difficult to decide where to go or look first. This was probably my fourth time attending the Con, and it never ceases to be overwhelming and awesome at the same time.
