NYCC 2014 - What it is such a great weekend!
There are so many things that can be categorized as the best part of New York Comic Con, the great costumes, the friendly vendors, the artists, the exclusives, the panels but all of this can be summed up in two words, The People.
From those that attend to show off their cosplay skills(my kids), to those that truly go to buy comics (that's me), the whole weekend is a great experience and the people make it possible.
This year we went on Sunday, which is kids day, for the first time. It was great to see so many children getting into collecting. It is a really great way to get the next generation into our wonderful hobby. I saw families dressed altogether as a theme, such as KiSS and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This is a day for families to share in the fun, and it really does work. If you can find one thing that you can share with your kids for many years to come, do it. One of the best things we saw was a young boy in a wheel chair in costume as Optimus Prime, AWESOME would be the best way to describe it.
People and Families are what make NYCC great. See everyone there next year.
Over the next week I will be posting about our Comic Con success, so keep coming back for more.
