NY Comic Con 2012 aftermath...

Thanks New York for making the 2012 show our best convention (anywhere) yet.

NYCC12: Day 3: It’s Getting Crazy…

PinExt NYCC12: Day 3: Its Getting Crazy...
Okay… again, I got up at a decent hour, and made it to the show around 11.  I made the mistake of having the taxi let me off at the curb near the Yellow entrance, and someone with a megaphone berated me.  (Hey, if that’s a problem, get the police to direct traffic.  The taxi was there for two minutes, tops.)  So I had to walk upstream against the massive hordes coming down the sidewalk and filling up the parkway like a cistern, as security dealt with bag checks.
I had no problem getting into the show floor, and perused the small press area next to the construction zone.  It was a bit tight, but not difficult.  I discovered Bliss On Tap, who published Alex NiƱo’s God the Dyslexic Dog.  They had artwork for sale, super cheap for one of the great Bronze Age artists who still is a master!
Sadly, I’m on a tight budget, so I had to pass.
