Deep Inside New York Comic Con 2010: Sunday

Two words to describe this year’s New York Comic Con: Awesome. Clusterfuck.

With attendance reportedly jumping from 77,000 at the February 2009 event to 90,000 for this month’s extravaganza — no doubt thanks in part to an 18-month hiatus and the simultaneous New York Anime Festival being held in the same venue — the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan was teeming with fanboys and fangirls checking out movie panels and previews, participating in video game demonstrations, parading around in costume or simply shopping for comic book and trade paperback bargains. I visited both as a fan and as a reporter for MSN Movies — you can find my extensive MSN coverage here — and was amazed at how quickly time flew by. Despite the human traffic jam during the midday hours, NYCC was a blast.

Following is the Sunday coverage to add to my first NYCC 2010 photo gallery.

    I hit the Con for all three days and think I walked the equivalent of 100 miles by the time I was done with it. It was definitely a super powered level of sensory overload, but one I would totally do again. I’m filtering through my images now and will let you know when they post since I gather a fellow comic fan like yourself will enjoy them. I still cannot believe that I didn’t buy one single thing. Talk about restraint.

    My girlfriend (Princess Leia in your photo) sent me this link. I wanted to offer a minor (and very late) correction. While I was rocking a beard, I wasn’t Riker. I was just a generic engineering guy. I didn’t have the leadership skills to be Riker (and the costume shop didn’t have a red uniform in my size). Maybe next year.

    Cheers,
    -Paul

      I was wondering that but wasn’t sure. So how I should rewrite it? The man who would be Riker? Or genetic engineer? 😉
