There are undoubtedly spoilers to be found within these writeups, but the same spoilers will be readily available to anyone with access to a comic store and $0 on this coming Saturday, Free Comic Book Day (!) .
But if you’re unsure what book should be top priority, which ones are safe for kids, or what you’d be getting yourself into, take a look at the following reviews. Free Comic Book Day can get a bit intense at the right store, and to be forewarned is to be forearmed.
Ahoy-hoy Evil Geeks! It certainly was a crazy few days at the Javits last week and quite frankly, the Evil Geeks are all still laying about the Evil Lair in full on recovery mode. Arthur’s been conjuring up all kinds of crazy shit using the blood of fallen cosplayers. C-Mart’s been floating around in his M.O.D.O.K. chair all week. Biff’s been in sort of a trance, just continually building an exact replica of the Convention Center out of Legos. And Big Evil…well, no one’s actually seen him since he got into that fistfight with a horde of teens dressed as obscure anime characters. We keep getting garbled voice mail messages from him, but we stopped listening after the first 36 or so. When we could get a word out of the guys, those words were barely audible references to the hundreds of outstanding costumes that everyone had put together for the con. Here’s what we think are each of their 5 favorite costumes from the show according to their garbled ramblings.
This is a list of my top 5 favorite cosplays of NYCC, I can tell you that it very quickly turned into me picking my 5 favorite characters that I saw represented. There’s something about seeing a character you love in the flesh that really is amazing.
5.) Typhoid Mary
This was one of two Typhoid Marys we saw at this convention, but I was so pleased that she went the route of the late 80’s early 90’s incarnation and the classic purple attire. My inner Daredevil fan rejoiced.
