I managed to get to the Javits Center by 11am. I headed over to the Todd McFarlane booth, and by the time I found it, the autograph line was way too long. I then went over to the CarLister booth to get a free poster capsule. Once I acquired it, I went to Artist Alley. I looked for Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez and Jerry Ordway to get their autographs, but they weren’t in. I did stop by the nearby Hero Initiative table and bought a Hero Initiative pin (I also gave a donation to help comic veterans in need). I then went to Klaus Janson’s table to get my DKIII: The Master Race poster (which I had gotten for free near the Batman v. Superman statues) autographed. I also bought a Daredevil: End of Days graphic novel from Janson (who also drew a sketch inside and autographed it). I stopped by the Nerd Glam table to see cosplayer Ireland Reid, who debuted a new Poison Ivy cosplay outfit (complete with lights!). After taking some pics, I headed back to the show floor, where I bought a Spider-Man wallet and, at the Plymptoons booth, an autographed copy of Bill Plympton’s Cheatin’ on blu-ray. I then left the Javits Center and headed over to the Hammerstein Ballroom for the Ash vs. Evil Dead panel.
After the extremely enjoyable Ash vs. Evil Dead panel (which included a screening of the pilot episode), I returned to the Javits Center and headed over to the Ash vs. Evil Dead trailer. After waiting on a long line, I finally got in. The inside was a recreation of Ash’s actual trailer from the show, including his axe and workshop tools (which, of course, included his chainsaw). I took some pics and one of the vendors took a couple of pics with me wielding the chainsaw and sawed-off shotgun. Before I left the trailer area, I picked up an Ash vs. Evil Dead button. I went inside the Javits Center and went back to the show floor. I stopped by to say hello to cosplayer Sarah Russi at her booth. After a brief chat, I went over to the Gemr booth to buy an autographed Jessica Nigri print (I went with her Harley Quinn print). She even posed for a picture with me afterward. At the Lightning Bottleneck booth, I bought a vampire Batman print, and at the Fampart booth I bought a gorgeous Evil Dead 2 poster.
After seeing a flyer advertising that Paris Themmen (Mike Teevee from 1971’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) had a table at NY Comic Con, I went to find it, and after doing so, bought an autographed still and Golden Ticket from him as well as get my picture taken with him. Afterward, I accidentally stumbled upon the Poisonous Pinups booth, where I met the very friendly Ophelia Rain (a model, actress, and porn star). I bought an autographed copy of Old Nick magazine with her on the cover. I even got to take a picture with her. As I headed out, I took some more cosplay pics (including some pics of the Delorean from Back To the Future) and then left. That was my Saturday at this year’s NY Comic Con.
