Jess here with Saturday’s highlights from NYCC!
Mine? Probably wandering aimlessly by the Marvel booth after giving up on getting a wristband for the Jessica Jones/Daredevil panel…just in time to see the Daredevil cast hanging out there instead. Kismet! I was too far away for decent pictures, but I’m sure they could tell I loved them from afar.
I finally got to meet Sam Maggs, who is amazing and I’ve been Twitter friends with for a long time.

Con moment: Watching the first episode of Jessica Jones. It was a fascinating experience, and I’m very much on my way to being uncomfortable with the color purple. No, not that The Color Purple.
My Geordie La Forge funko pop figurine!
Con Moment: Instead of picking up hot con exclusives, I decided to finally snag an old classic that I had never read for the train ride home. I picked up Tim Truman’s “Hawkworld”. Why didn’t anyone tell me that I would love this thing!? What other late-80’s gems from DC have I ignored? I feel a future article brewing here.
This was a fated meeting because months ago, I saw it on the cover of Uncanny magazine and wanted to buy the magazine JUST for the cover art. Tran Nguyen is an amazing artist and a MUST buy. I get chills looking at it.
