Attended NEW YORK COMIC CON this past weekend & had a blast!

It was a record year, with over 150,000 attendees, possibly 100% verifiable as our con passes have RFID tags that we had to scan in-and-out with. I sat in on the WOMEN IN MARVEL panel (BGSD!) and the BATMAN 75th Anniversary panel (Kevin Conroy!) got a lot of comics signed, duck faced (yes it is a verb now) with many of my most favourite people, ate at Shake Shack a lot, walked over 100 km and bought a lot of cool swag.

Didn’t take as many pictures as I usually do, as I was in cosplay myself (What If? Star-lord Gamora! Red pleather! Ack!) but here are some of the snaps I was able to take.

Pretty Deadly - Kelsey B. (Alice) @ChampionofNone (Johnny) @PrettySuited (Ginny) 

Steampunk Wonder Woman - Lizmabel Puello - @LizmabelP

Femme!Winter Soldier (aristargirl on instagram) & Black Widow 

Thor - @PepperMonster

Misfit - @RedConfession

Storm - @nelsrandomlife

Ms. Marvel (@obiren13) with Madame Tussauds’ Hawkeye 

I didn’t get everyone’s names, sorry but please pipe up and send me a message if the cosplayer in these pix = you! Thanks!

Who else attended? What was your favourite panel / cosplayer / meet and greet / memorable moment ?

I WILL END YOU. I WILL FUCKING END YOU. YOU SIT DOWN TO WRITE A COMIC ABOUT ALL OF SHAKESPEARE’S CHARACTERS COMING TOGETHER TO HAVE WACKY VIOLENT CROSSOVER ADVENTURES, A PERFECTLY SOLID CONCEPT WITH OUTSTANDING SOURCE MATERIAL, AND YOU BRING THIS OXFORDIAN BULLSHIT INTO THE ACKNOWLEDGMENTS?
SHUT YOUR GODDAMN CLASSIST MOUTH. YOU OWE THIS BOOK TO WILLIAM FUCKING SHAKESPEARE AND YOU HAVE THE UNMITIGATED GALL TO SUGGEST HE DIDN’T WRITE THE PLAYS YOU ARE BORROWING FROM. FOURTEEN YEAR OLD FANFIC AUTHORS IN THE PIT OF VOLES HAVE MORE RESPECT FOR THE CREATORS OF THEIR SOURCE CANONS THAN THAT. DO YOU SEE THEM WRITING DISCLAIMERS THAT SAY “Bella Swan belongs to Stephanie Meyer — or J.K. Rowling or Beyonce Knowles or whoever she might be! LOL!” NO, BECAUSE THAT BULLPUCKEY IS RUDE, INACCURATE, AND UNNECESSARILY SMUG.
"CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE," BITE ME, HE WAS KILLED BEFORE SHAKESPEARE WROTE MANY OF HIS PLAYS AND HE WAS A DIFFERENT WRITER ALTOGETHER. OH, BUT I GUESS ALL ELIZABETHAN ENGLISH SOUNDS THE SAME TO YOU, SO PRESUMABLY ALL YOU SEE IS "THEES" AND "THOUS" AND STYLISTIC AND THEMATIC DIFFERENCES BETWEEN TWO GREATS DON’T EVEN REGISTER. MAYBE JAMES CAMERON ACTUALLY MADE ALL OF STEVEN SPIELBERG’S MOVIES, TOO, SINCE THEY’RE BOTH FILMMAKERS AND THEY BOTH HAVE EXPLOSIONS SOMETIMES.
"EDWARD DE VERE." JESUS JUGGLING CHRIST ON A VELOCIPEDE, GO JUMP IN A LAKE.

This made me so happy.
