There was so much swag this year from New York Comic Con 2017 that it required an aerial shot to get it all in one photo. I don’t think I realized how much I’d tucked away in bags and luggage until I tried to carry the luggage.
First to mention a tiny but eerie piece of original art by the great Robert Hack, and a signed issue of the first Eugenic by James Tynion IV and Eryk Donovan from an event at Forbidden Planet NYC.
Also a signed Lazaretto #1 from Clay McLeod Chapman, from the same event. Free geek magazines and previews are always on my take-home list at a show.
My biggest splurge was a handbag by Loungefly depicting the Guardians of the Galaxy in tattoo art form. Also a little vinyl record of the Daredevil soundtrack from the Marvel booth.
Here several of the lovely exclusive vinyl TITANS from the Titan booth as well as a Skottie Young designed Black Panther plush from Marvel, the enviable and silky Valiant bandana debuting at the show, and the follow up to Comix Tribe’s best-selling horror Sink #1 with issues #2 and #3 in prestige format as convention exclusive.
Also essential to grab were the convention exclusive silvery cover for Kid Lobotomy #1 from Black Crown at IDW and Ben Templesmith’s Trump variant for Mr. Wormwood Goes to Washington.
A bunch more comics filled out the haul, particularly from Titan Comics, including the zero issue of their upcoming OGN The Beatles: Yellow Submarine, the nazi-punching Wolfenstein, and their new Hard Case Crime line’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. See above for The Fighting American (the return of a character Jack Kirby-created, now as your alternative to Secret Empire) and Sherlock manga-style.
I have plenty to investigate as the autumn days get shorter now in my swag from NYCC ’17. How about you? What did you bring home?
