New York Comic Con 2014 part 2: Non-Cosplay Edition

Adam & I didn’t just take pictures of cosplayers (see part 1 aka All Cosplay, All The Time); no, we took pictures of damn near everything else too. Toys! Video games! Cool things made out of Lego plastic stacking blocks! Secret flasks hidden inside old NES cartridges! And more comics that I didn’t feel like buying than you could shake a stick at. Photo tour commences…now.

Trailer Park: Powers

Here we are, fresh from New York Comic Con 2014: The first trailer from Brian Michael Bendis’/Michael Avon Oeming’s Powers series, only on AMC HBO FX Playstation Network? Hmm.  Well, ok.  Let’s have a look.

Well.  Umm.  Huh.  You know..huh.

I love Powers.  I credit it with getting me back into reading comics in the early 2000’s. I think Bendis and Oeming crafted something interesting that had a lot of influence.  That being said…I’m not so sure about this. I’m not really buying Sharlto Copley (yes, real name) as Walker either.  Look, I’ll still watch the thing. But I will do so from my ivory tower perched atop my very highest horse.
