Comic Con

Comikaze-LogoThis past Halloween weekend marked the 5th year for Comikaze.  Dubbed Stan Lee’s Comikaze 3 years ago, this years show was filled with fans and cosplayers from all over.  Thousands of attendees swarmed the Los Angeles Convention Center in hopes of catching their favorites of the industry.  This was Forbidden Panels first year having a booth at the show.

Saturday of New York Comic Con (NYCC) 2015 is officially in the books, and due to travel necessities, it will be my last day for this year. The first and most vehement thing I have to say about the day is, holy crap. I thought the crowds were massive yesterday, but they were even larger today. I haven’t seen crowds like that anywhere outside of San Diego Comic Con (SDCC). It was truly impressive. For the first time this weekend, there were panels outside of the main hall that had their lines capped hours before the panel actually took place. The halls were packed, people were costumed to the nines, and there was a generally frenetic energy filling the air. I’ve got pictures for you and a brief bit of coverage regarding the panels that I attended, but first let me say, any of you that enjoy the convention experience and have had a blast at SDCC or WonderCon, you really should give NYCC a shot at least once.

Well, lads and lassies, day 2 of NYCC 2015 is all wrapped up. Since I managed to cover the entire exhibit hall yesterday, I was free to finally take a look at Artist Alley today. I have to say, I was impressed immediately by the sheer size of it. An entire pavillion within the convention center is given over to Artist Alley. I was shocked by the sheer number of creators that were present. I can say in all honesty that it is the largest Artist Alley that I have seen so far. Apart from that, the crowds today were even larger than yesterday, and the attendees really did start to break out the cosplay. I was fortunate enough to attend the panel for the upcoming Amazon series The Man in the High Castle and I will give you all a bit of a rundown on what that was like and what the series entails, but first, check out these pictures that didn’t make an appearance on the Forbidden Panel Instagram feed today.

New York Comic Con (NYCC) 2015 kicked off today. Yes, I did make the long, long, long trip all the way to New York to take in this convention for the first time. I was surprised by a few things today. I was surprised by just how large the crowds were for a Thursday. It was the largest crowd on the opening day of a convention that I can recall seeing apart from San Diego. The other thing that was a bit of a shock to me was the difference between the number of people in costumes and those in street clothes. I don’t know why, but I expected to see far more cosplayers than I did today. Still, there were the odd few impressive costumes and at least a few cool toys or displays to check out. Not every vendor was set up today, so I know there will be even more to see come tomorrow. Check out pictures of the day below, and keep reading for quick wrap ups of the panels I attended.

After a lot of back and forth Warner Bros. has given in and released the official first look at the Suicide Squad film as well as Jared Leto as the Joker.

Please comment below with your thoughts.

Unfortunatley for me, the first official day of Comic Con is also the last day of Comic Con.  And since I knew that would not be returning the next day, I did my best to run around and grab as many photos as I could.


The floor was even more bombarded today then it was yesterday.  Because of that, I could not maneuver through the crowds as well as I did the previous night.  I did, however, manage to pick up some really awesome stuff from some of my favorite vendors.  I also managed to swing by some booths and say hi to some old friends.  Again, due to the size of the crowd I was unable to get any interviews.

Here are some of the photos from todays adventures.  Please make sure you tune in to this weeks episode of the PanelCast as Anthony and I will be wrapping up and reviewing as much as we can about this years San Diego Comic Con.

It’s that time of year again.  No, not Christmas.  Well not for some.  But time for San Diego Comic Con.  The biggest convention of the year is upon us once again.

SDCC is always a love/hate relationship.  While I enjoy seeing all the amazing exclusives and grand booth displays on the floor, I am not a big fan of crazed crowds and long waits in line.  This year was no exception.


The convention floor was filled with some really amazing statues and toys and displays.  While I did not have a chance to see everything (the floor was only open for 3 hrs) I did my best to take pictures of what I could see.  I also managed to be able to run around to some of my favorite booths and grab some of the exclusives.

For me, my favorite part of SDCC is the Annual Forbidden Panel Dinner at the Gaslamp Strip Club (think steaks).  I was not let down this year.  Joined by some good friends and fans, I had a blast.

Here are some of the photos I did manage to take today.  While I will not be able to attend Fri-Sun, I will be on the floor again tomorrow.  Hopefully, I can snap more pictures at that time.  To see what pics I will be taking, please head over to our Instgram page and follow our adventures as they happen.   Also, check back here on Tuesday as we release the latest episode of the PanelCast with our detailed run-down of our hijinks at SDCC
