Ah, NYC Comic Con, once again. Reminded that “Cosplay is Not Consent” (thanks very much Comic-Con, as if I didn’t know) here men and women paint themselves, don various costumes (lots self-made) to be looked upon, have their picture taken, and to be ogled. Confidence is high in the cosplay universe and simply put, everybody dressed at Comic Con, showing whatever of themselves they are showing, is hoping to be looked at. So look, I did.

I also looked around a lot, starting down in the ‘basement’ floor of the Javits Center, where ‘Artists Alley’ was. Once again, I got to meet Darryl McDaniels, as much pushing his “Darryl Makes Comics,” as the paperback version of his bio. He actually remembered meeting me when I interviewed him for us way back in 2016 (see here), a nicer guy you will never meet. Then I made it to the other side of that massive floor space to where panels were held (I got to enjoy Paul Rubens answering questions for an hour the next day) then made it upstairs.

This ground floor and above it is where the main action is for Comic Con.

DC had a display of costumes for their upcoming Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), and there were tons of ‘interactive’ booths for fans of game platforms to enter and play. Various series were represented at large carpeted “booth” spaces, Netflix’s “Lost In Space” second season, and their new kinda sequel to “Breaking Bad, their new movie El Camino only two of the many. Yummy food trucks outside in the Javits parking lot fed the hungry, and this particular long weekend (10/3-10/6), everybody was buzzing about Joker (which I hit Saturday morning before traipsing down to Comic Con).

My biggest take away this year? There sure is lots of stuff for the fantasy faithful to latch onto…and I kinda do like to see women dressed in hot and revealing outfits (not something I needed Comic Con to remind me of). From Chris Jericho’s new AEW wrestling to ton upon ton of stuff from streaming services to Funko yet again trolling out their latest, whatever you may be into of pop culture, sci-fi, or really anything else that might float your little dinghy, it can be found at Comic Con.
