Big Apple Not Quite Big Enough

crowd1Close the doors! Cap the line! One in, one out. Yes, it seems the Big Apple Comic Con has reached capacity. Fire marshals are doing what fire marshals do best, which in this case means preventing people from coming in to have their photo taken with Linda Hamilton and Adam West.

Yesterday I was able to do a quick run around Artists’ Alley with a video camera.

Sometimes it works, which holds everyone up, so everyone behind them gets the pitch too. Dealers seem to be good trading, with Chris’ Cards And Comics’ signature $10 trade only adding a 3 for $25 further discount.

Also, kudos to Thomas Jane for cosplaying. Anyone get a pic?

Twit of the day? The NYCC correcting Big Apple attendees over what convention they were at.

Oh and thank you Onion for Area Man Has Far Greater Knowledge Of Marvel Universe Than Own Family Tree

Whichever one used to have the long dark hair and kind of looked like former Alpha Flight member Diamond Lil.”
