New York Comic Con 2017 Adam Etheridge Gallery, Sunday

Posted October 23, 2017 by Rodney Brown

Our last gallery from New York Comic Con 2017 is of the photos taken by Adam Etheridge on Sunday. While the weather was every bit as muggy and hot as Atlanta during Dragon Con, and the crowds were as insane as always, the convention is always worth the headaches because of the sheer number of outstanding cosplays on display.

New York Comic Con 2017 FPS Gallery, Sunday

Posted October 23, 2017 by Rodney Brown

We only have a couple of galleries from Sunday at New York Comic Con 2017. That is partly because we all had travel time to deal with and left earlier in the day than previous days, and partly because it is typically a day that has fewer people in cosplay overall. But part of it was that […]
