NYCC – San Diego In Disguise? | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and RumorsThere was a moment on Saturday of New York Comic Con that I walked down the stairs and turned left instead of right.

Doctor Who and Sherlock cosplay abound at NY Comic Con 2012New York Comic Con (NYCC) was held this past weekend at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan. The convention has been running since 2006 and has gradually progressed to epic proportions, coming closer every year to rivaling the San Diego Comic Con in size and celebrity appearances.
Broadway’s Spider-Man Swings Into New York ComicCon – Theater News – Oct 18, 2012Star Reeve Carney, who plays Peter Parker/Spider-Man, sang "Boy Falls From the Sky" from the musical, which performs on Broadway at the Foxwoods Theatre. Afterwards, Spider-Man resident choreographer Jason Snow led an interactive presentation and demo for kids in the audience. And numerous costumed Spider-Men interacted with fans at the convention.
A New York Comic Con Slideshow – ForbesCosplay allows fans to become part of the show – it’s a self-reinforcing loop of "that’s awesome!" and "wow, that must have taken forever to make" that spurs more and more people to dress as their favorite characters each year.

Comic Con Can Teach You How To Ask QuestionsI went to Comic Con (as did another Local staffer!) this weekend and thought it was okay.

New York Comic Con more about comics than you thoughtWith some perspective from really only following the show via the internet, this year’s New York Comic Con seems to have been another huge, hectic success. While crowding seems to have been an issue yet again, despite show promotion that featured media guests over comics, comics publishing announcements dominated the news cycle.
