A Look Behind Romani Concerns Expressed At New York Comic Con

A number of Romani comic book fans, concerned regarding the general representation of Romani character in mainstream superhero comic books have organised to ask questions about this topic at a number of diversity-related panels at comic shows over the last couple of years.

The Surprise Appearance At NYCC

By Joe Glass One final surprise of NYCC I only personally discovered on the very last day. Whilst tabling at the LGBT HQ booth, a young man approached and asked me if I knew where the Scruff booth was. “Scruff? Like, the dating app?” “Well, yeah.” I had to say, I was surprised to hear […]

Talking Godzilla: Rage Across Time With Kahil Schweitzer

The (Mighty) Power Rangers Comic Book Panel At New York Comic Con

By Octavio Karbank If you’re like me, and are either a fan of comics or Power Rangers, then it probably comes as no surprise that I’m reading, and every much excited, about the current Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers comics line by Boom! Studios. I can only hope you are too. They are really good. Seriously. […]

Sleepy Hollow’s Return At New York Comic Con

By Octavio Karbank Sleepy Hollow has been absent from our lives now for quite some time. Well, that might not be entirely true, but it’s certainly felt that way. With the sudden and dramatic changes at the season of Season 3, many have wondered how, if at all, the show would come back to being […]

When Assassination Classroom Comes To New York

by Jason Borelli On the surface, the manga Assassination Classroom seems offbeat, even for Japan. A class consisting of hard-luck cases are looked down upon by other students and their principal, who encourages the scorn. This class has a new teacher: a creature with a huge head, smiley face and tentacle body. He destroyed most […]

When Paul Cornell Had An Idea That Could Only Work With The Third Doctor Who

Body Confidence And Positivity In Cosplay At New York Comic Con

By Ale Bodden Of all the panels I was able to sit through this year I must say this was the panel I ended NYCC still thinking about. It was short and sweet, and it hit right in the feels. However, all I can think about is designing my cosplay for the next convention I […]

Last week, Entertainment Weekly ran a preview of a new comic, God Country, by Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw from Image Comics. It was meant to be announced at New York Comic Con. It’s just I didn’t hear that it was. And searching across social media, no one else seemed to notice it was, either. So […]
