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.

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