This past weekend, from October 8-10, was New York Comic Con and Anime Festival. I attended the entire weekend and had a blast. There was tons cosplay, costumes, great panels, long lines and of course bad smells. This week I’ll be giving you my recap on the good, bad and the geeky… oh wait that was the entire weekend!
I had a press pass which allowed me in a few hours before everyone else on Friday to check out the con and get some gameplay in before the crowd was let loose which was pretty cool. The highlight for me was The Walking Dead Panel, this isn’t just because I love zombies, but a majority (if not all) of NYCC seemed to be left overs from San Diego Comic Con and E3. Basically, most of what was there wasn’t new and exclusive but The Walking Dead creators and cast showed us “exclusive” clips and the panel was great. I also got the comic signed by a few of them! Oh and also I saw Stan Effing Lee three times and just about exploded into a million pieces!

Check out some pics from this weekend, and a few from Big Apple Comic Con last weekend. (The awesome cosplay/costume pictures and other pics and video from the panels will in their respective posts throughout the week.)
Enjoy this mashup video I did of the con and a slideshow below. The music played in the beginning of the video is parody of “Ridin’ Solo” by Jason Darulo by MC Chris now the new and improved “Han Solo” version, which I did a post on earlier today.
*I apologize for the shaky camera and video quality, I am clearly no Spielberg*
The little girl at the end was just too cute, and really good, at the Michael Jackson Experience.
