With geek culture having established an undeniable influence over mainstream entertainment, New York Comic Con has become a major annual event, drawing more than 100,000 aficionados of comics, graphic novels, anime, manga, video games, toys, movies and television from around the world. Big names show up for signings, screenings and panels, and with the multitude of cosplayers (costumed participants dressed like fictional characters) roaming the Javits Center, you’ll find yourself gawking at Judge Dredd, Wonder Woman, Boba Fett and who knows who else making small talk in the aisles.
