Went to New York to attend the NY Comic Con this past weekend with a couple friends. I don’t actually have time to write about it now, but I’ll post a couple pictures I took. I don’t own a digital camera so these are all crappy iPhone pictures, and unfortunately the quality shows.
Not exactly Comic-Con related, but this is the fairly famous Apple store on 5th Avenue. I believe it’s built in a decommissioned train station – there is a glass spiral staircase inside the cube that leads a floor down to the Apple store underneath.
Import Asuka Langley Soryu figure from Neon Genesis Evangelion. I didn’t really pick up many comics since you can get those from most any comic book store. I mostly looked for less common stuff such as collectibles and figurines, especially import ones, since they have a hefty premium tacked on when you import them online. (I mean, these do too, but not quite as much…)
This is the Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume I: From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness trade paperback, written by Claudio Sanchez and illustrated by Christopher Shy. Claudio Sanchez is the frontman of the rock band Coheed and Cambria, and the comic details the story that is told in the group’s music. This is the comic version of their third album, which shares the same title. This trade paperback is actually old and discontinued, but I picked it up since I don’t have it. Notice Claudio’s autograph in silver sharpie – he was doing autographs at ny comic con.
This was just premiered at comic con, the trade paperback of the Amory Wars. It’s the comic version of Coheed’s first album, The Second Stage Turbine Blade. The silver sharpie autographs are of Claudio Sanchez (writer) and Tony Moore (cover artist).
I kind of wish I had taken more pictures (hell, I wish I could afford an actual digital camera), especially of some of the interesting cosplay girls. There were two girls dressed up as light and dark Chii from Chobits that I kind of wish I got a picture with. Oh well.
