ComicCons Arrive on Long Island

The big ComicCon in the New York area these days is certainly the annual NY ComicCon, the four-day festival that takes over the Javits Center in New York City, drawing the second biggest pop-culture crowd in the U.S., second only to the iconic San Diego ComicCon. Though attempts were made to compete, like Wizard World's New York presence, and smaller shows, like the Big Apple Comic Con, crop up here and there, getting to the city and battling the near-claustrophobic crowds isn't for everyone. For the first time in pretty much anyone's memory, Long Island received its first ComicCon on June 16, 2013, as Frank Patz kicked off the first EternalCon at the Cradle of Aviation in Garden City, NY.

It's Been a While

I've been away from the convention circuit for a while, due to a number of issues, including personal and professional responsibilities and canceled conventions, but this year looks to be an opportunity to get back on track.
