The full film and TV line-up for this year’s San Diego Comic Con has been released and more than ever before the balance has shifted from movies to television with many major shows and upcoming new series all getting panels or major screenings. Films on the other hand are few and far between, in fact Friday – once a film haven in Hall H – has given way completely to TV panels.
This 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.
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.
