4 Photos from NY Comic Con


This photo is only somewhat posed. I was on my way to the bathroom, and saw someone dressed as Rorschach leaning on the railing and looking over the balcony at the convention-goers below. This struck me as a very in-character posture for Rorschach.

I asked him if I could take his picture. He agreed, turned to face me, and struck an upright superhero pose.

I took that picture, and then asked him if I could take another with him leaning on the railing just as he was.

Boba Fett playing an accordion in front of the Javitz Center.

It's not every day that you can write a caption like that, and it describe something that really happened.

My brother Mike, as a Starfleet officer preparing to cross Eleventh Avenue.

I have to hand it to my brother Mike for organizing the whole outing. It's quite surprising that I haven't gone to it before, and I'll certainly be back next year.

It would be a little too geek-in-the-closet for me to post these photos without including one of myself-

so here is a photo of me, dressed as a Starfleet officer, eating a hot dog.

I didn't take nearly as many photos as I should have, so best place to check out other photos from the convention, including some pretty impressive costumes, is New York Comic Con's public flickr group.
