CFF At New York Comic Con 2015!

New York Comic Con 2015: An Exciting and Exhausting Day


This is my first New York Comic Con. I  wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived at the Jacob Javitz Center where it is being held. I know I didn't expect it to be crowded. Day 0 is never crowded right? WRONG!

I was overwhelmed with the amount of people there on the first official day of the con.  In addition, I thought NYCC operated on a much smaller scale than San Diego Comic Con (SDCC). I guess not. My game plan was to check out the lay of the land. Find the panel rooms, walk through the exhibitors hall, find food, bathrooms, etc. Even that was a difficult task as I had to wade through the massive crowd of cosplayers and photographers. After several hours of roaming, I found all I needed to and was ready to get into the action.

I snagged a not so great picture of actress Eliza Dushku of the Showtime hit show Banshee.

No panels though :(

The good thing NYCC is establishing itself within a league of its own. Not trying to necessarily follow in SDCC's foot steps by being a haven for movie news and red-carpet glamor, has helped them find an identity of their own. NYCC is covering all types of video game releases, anime, comics, and TV shows. TV, TV, TV. Nathon Fillon, Lucy Liu, and Vin Diesel are among some of the celebrities that will be present at this year's convention.

Now, off to prepare for tomorrow. I interview the cast of the TNT show The Librarians, which stars actress Rebecca Romjin!
