NY ComicCon Review

ComicCon was so much fun on Sunday October 13th. While walking to the Jacob Javitz Center in New York City a man standing on the sidewalk said, "Does anybody want to buy ComicCon badges?" Everybody walking by did not buy any badges from the man. At the next block there was another man asking, "Does anybody want to sell their ComicCon badges?" Nobody walking by wanted to sell their badges. The man at the beginning of the block selling ComicCon badges could sell them to the man at the end of the block who wanted to buy ComicCon badges.

A few months before the event began the ComicCon badges were sold out for Sunday. I would like to buy the badges for next years a year in advance. Since the badges were sold out way before the date, they should do something for the demand: They should expand the Jacob Javits Center to fit more people in costumes. 

While walking around at ComicCon I took pictures of my son with lots of people in costumes such as:  Batman, Spider-Man, a Stormtrooper, a Mortal Combat couple, a Transformer, The Agents of Shield Car (which was really cool, but the only thing cooler would have been if we could have drove the car.) 

Here's some exciting things from ComicCon: 
  • My son had gotten in a picture with Sylvester Stallone, but did not have to pay hundreds of dollars for the picture because it was a statue of Sylvester Stallone.
  • It was really cool being able to look at The Superman Costumes in glass cases from the Superman movies and TV shows.
  • We saw Sgt. Slaughter the wrestler take pictures with fans. He would put them in a fake headlock for the picture. Even at 65 years old Sgt. Slaughter still has it!
  • We heard Run DMC play their music. They were great!
There was so much going on that I wish I could be a superhero and be at every panel and do everything at ComicCon. If only the Superman outfits in the glass cases actually worked.
