The wait every year for New York Comic Con in October has just been made much easier thanks to the people behind NYCC. Special Edition NYC is a new yearly event where comic books and their creators are the sole focus.
I was able to attend its inaugural opening with my usual NYCC friends Joey and Phil. While I brought my Nikon camera along for the event, I failed to remove its battery from the charger before heading out so all pictures were taken with my iPhone 5s.
My favorite cosplay was a beautiful cosplayer as Kabuki.
Special Edition: NYC is an intimate event that is focused solely on the art, creation and culture of comic books.
