New York Comic Con 2014 in Photos

I have attended the New York Comic Con (NYCC) every year since its inception. I’ve attended as a guest, a pro, as press and the first year I actually snuck in. You can’t do that anymore. With an official attendance of over 150,000 unique guests this year, NYCC unseated the San Diego Comic Con as the largest pop culture convention in North America (SDCC has 130,000). With that many people, it’s literally impossible to see and do everything. Or even half of everything. But I snapped some photos of the best cosplay I saw and I wanted to share it with our loyal readers. Next year is the 10th anniversary of the show. Will I see you there?
