New York Comic Con 2012

I had a great time at this year's New York Comic Con. It was sold out, filling the Jacob Javits center with an estimated 116 thousand comic fans over four days in early October. I went Thursday afternoon, which is a great time to actually see the exhibits because it's not too crowded. Then I went back on Saturday and Sunday. They had lots of panels and events, but the one I tried to get into, with the cast from The Walking Dead talking about season 3 was full an hour before it started. No problem. I went back to finding good costumes to photograph.

I enjoy catching the fans in costume on the streets of NYC. While some of the costumes really stand out, some fit right in with the New York crowds.  Here are a few samples.

Once inside the convention center, there were costumed fans scampering about in all directions. Here's the main entrance lobby on Saturday afternoon. (If you look hard you can find Waldo.)





People do still buy comics.












I'm already looking forward to next year's con.

These and many more photos from the Con on Facebook.

Here's my photos from last year's NYCC 2011
