    So apparently there may be some after party with Rick Remender and Jerome Opena DJing. Pretty sure I'm gonna hit that up
    I LOVE conspiracy theorists. They are like human versions of the cymbal clapping, dancing monkeys. No one takes them all that seriously and they get bored with them after about 10 minutes.

      NYCC 2012: All The Parties And Events Happening Outside New York Comic Con!



      THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11TH

      BEN FOLDS FIVE
      WHERE: Javits Center, IGN Theater Ė 8pm
      PRICE: FREE, with VIP or 4-Day NYCC tix
      WHAT: Okay, fine, this is an event inside the Con; but itís also a Ben Folds Five concert officially kicking off NYCC 2012, and thatís pretty sweet. Seating is first come first served, so line up now, probably.

      RINGERS TAKE MANHATTAN
      WHERE: The Speakeasy at the Gin Mill, 422 Amsterdam Ave. Ė 8pm-11pm
      PRICE: $25 advance/$30 at the door
      WHAT: TheOneRing.net hosts their annual NYCC party, complete with food, drink, second breakfast, and some awesome prizes. Plus, the whole party is happening at 48 frames per second, which is probably really annoying!

      FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12TH

      ROCK COMIC CON 4-NYC!
      WHERE: Rebel NYC, 251 W. 30th St. Ė 7pm
      PRICE: $12 advance/$15 at the door.
      WHAT: Nerd rockers Schaffer The Dark Lord, H2Awesome! and more are joined by Epic Win Burlesque and others for a raucous party/show to close out Night 2! Plus, it benefits the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, so you can feel good while rocking out with your comic book out.

      THE MARY SUE/HER UNIVERSE MEET-UP
      WHERE: The Houndstooth Pub, 520 8th Ave. Ė 8pm
      PRICE: FREE
      WHAT: The delightful Mary Sue website, and Her Universe, purveyors of the clothes that make me jealous Iím not a lady team up to bring a free after con hangout, complete with swag from Her Universeís (and MTV Geek live-stream host) Ashley Eckstein and artist Katie Cook.

      THE BIG NYCC PARTY
      WHERE: The Houndstooth Pub, 520 8th Ave. Ė 8pm-Midnight
      PRICE: $10
      WHAT: Nope, your eyes donít deceive you: this is the same exact location as the Mary Sue/Her Universe meet-up. This party, though, benefits The Hero Initiative, and features Image Comics superstars Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples, Justin Jordan, Tradd Moore, Sina Grace, and more. Side-note: I donít know if you could head to the Mary Sue meet-up and sneak into this, but be nice, itís for a good cause you jerks.

      DRINKS FOR A CURE
      WHERE: Idle Hands Bar, 25 Ave. B Ė 9pm-??
      PRICE: FREE
      WHAT: The iFanboys host a party with Shirts For A CureÖ But the real draw is DJing from Rick Remender and Jerome Opena, which means anyone who goes to this party will die in incredibly gut-wrenching and surprising ways.

      DANCES OF VICE
      WHERE: The Gallery @ LPR, 158 Bleecker St. Ė 10pm-4am
      PRICE: $8 advance/$10 at the door

        Wow! Tons of things going on! I hope you guys have a great time. Take plenty of photos for the rest of us underprivileged folk for vicarious living purposes.

          I went Thursday and Sunday. From now on, Thursday is the only day to go for me. Got to talk with artists and got some cool commisions done. I was able to hit every booth and check all the crap out. Found a good deal on an Animated Sinestro statue for $20. It was a great day. I was there so long I didn't go back Friday.

          Went again Sunday, and screw that. It was so friggin' packed I hated it. Lines, crowds, couldn't see or do anything. Never again on a weekend.

            I asked a friend of mine to take some snapshots while he was at the show for vicarious living purposes. Since nobody else knows how to take a photo around here ( ), here are some pics from the NYCC:

                  Nice!

                  Hopefully one of these years I'll make it to NYCC before it turns into SDCC where tickets will be hard to come by.
