New York Comic Con 2017

NYCC 2017

Soulcial Dreamin’ Entertainment attended New York City Comic Convention in New York at the Jacob K. Javits Center. This year the convention site was much smaller than usual and it usually entails the entire center but due to it being under repair so space was cut short. Anyone who wished to attend this year had to purchase individual day passes which can be expensive if you planned to go all four days. They were not selling weekend passes this year so the convention activities were extended to other sites, Madison Square Garden, Hammerstein Ballroom, Hudson Mercantile, and the New York Public Library.

This year the convention had plenty of things to do especially on the show floor. There were many comic book guests and movie actors. Many previews of unreleased shows like The Walking Dead season 8 and the world premiere of Sailor Moon Crystal episodes 27 and 28. There were gaming stations that let people test demos of games that have yet to be released like Monster Hunter World and test the beta version of the game, in this game you play a hunter and you must hunt down large creatures. It is an open world game and you could explore the world with your customized character and weapons. Monster Hunter World is due to come out January 2018. I also played Life is Strange: After the Storm the prequel to Life is Strange.

  Most of my time at the convention I spent it on the show floor where you can purchase a variety of items or test new games. There were many vendors and some indie comic book artists, I did visit the Artist Alley section where there were many famous comic book artists like Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez creator of “La Borinquena” the first comic book to have an Afro-Latina superhero of Puerto Rican descendant. I also had the chance to meet John Leguizamo actor and now comic book author published his first comic “Freak”Freak1_FinalCover.jpg

The last thing I did was attend the NYCC Eastern Championships of Cosplay presented by Singer, it is the largest and most prestigious costume contest ever. People are chosen to represent the state they’re participating for in the 2018 C2E2 Crown Championship of Cosplay in Chicago which is the final stop to the Global Championship of Cosplay. Everyone gives it their all to create the ultimate cosplay, this year’s competitors were amazing cosplayers that showed their skills of creativity and hard work.

This year’s New York Comic Con could have been more fun if it wasn’t for the single day passes. Overall I had a good time but I would have liked it more if I made it to some panels but every time I wanted to go the room was full or the line was long. The Jacob Javits Center is huge and it is hard to explore it all in a day. Hopefully next year they resume the three-day and four-day passes so I can have more time to enjoy the convention.

In the past two years, I’ve had the opportunity to interview some pretty amazing people.  I normally, provide a little anecdotal story detailing our introduction.  While I can’t recall our initial encounter, I know it was definitely via YouTube.  Out of all the interviews, I’ve done, this hands down feels the most personal.  This is someone I’ve admired. This is someone I’ve learned from.  This is someone who’s looked out for me wanting nothing in return.  This is someone I consider a friend.

This weekend August 18th – 20th is Liberty City Anime Con 2017. Third year running as New York City’s largest anime convention located in the heart of NYC Times Square Marriott Hotel. Last year we attended LCAC 2016 for the first time and it did have its ups and downs but it was a really fun experience with meeting new people and the awesome dealers selling their merchandise.

Last year all we really did was attend the concerts because most of the panels we wanted to check out were cancelled or no shows, hopefully with this years full schedule there will be less cancellations. We were fortunate enough to interview Patrick Bartley Jr. from J-MUSIC Ensemble. Hopefully this year we can get a few more interviews and more content since this year should be bigger and better than last.

We have our passes and hope you and your friends got yours if not you can purchase your tickets here. For those who already purchased their tickets remember badge pickup starts at 10AM on Friday and Thursday 5PM – 7PM for those who did early registration. We look forward to meeting some of you that are going to be at Liberty City Anime Con just let us know on our twitter if you want to meet up with us.

Here’s a few post we did about last years Liberty City Anime Con:
