#NYCC2019 is here! It's my first time headed to New York Comic Con, and I'm pretty pumped - and maybe a bit overwhelmed. My buddy Joey reminded me to always ask before taking a picture of cosplayers: respect and consent are important. An ALT texter suggested planning my days around guest schedules, and he said exploring Artist Alley is a must for seeing creators of all kinds make their magic. And this NYCC Guide from amNY has a bunch of things to do OUTSIDE of Comic Con proper, including a Rave of Thrones afterparty DJed by none other than Kristian Nairn, aka HODOR! 

I have dreams of getting into the Watchmen panel/screening tomorrow, but I'm sure it'll be packed. My general plan is just to wander around the show floor and take it all in - and take pictures, of course. Here's a Beginner's Guide to NYCC from The Geekiary for fellow newbies. If you're headed to Javits this weekend, or have tips, let me know on Twitter! (And BTW: you can still get Thursday badges if you hurry!)
