More Posts about New York Comic Con! Here we have a commissioned portrait of Bubbles, drawn by Rolf Lejdegård of 215 Ink, a kick ass independent comics label based out of Philadelphia. We got stuck near their booth for about a half an hour, first waiting for Agent Abby to return with cash, and then because they were totally awesome! We discussed the internet, AV production, TV, traveling abroad and Star Trek! I even found out the difference between resurrected Jesus and a Zombie! Check out their titles when you have a chance!
Here we see the still brand new Stack Exchange Mascot first official portrait, as well as a few candid shots of her roaming the floor. This was my first Comic Con as well, and I while I am physically exhausted, it was really very fun to meet fellow nerds and hand out stickers and the occasional shirt. I met a lot of cool people (it’s all a bit of a blur to be honest) but feel confident in my conclusion that our NYCC mission was a success!
Abby and I represented CHAOS at the NYC Lightsaber Battle in Washington Square Park on Saturday night. Stack Exchange provided event planners Newmindspace with 35 Jedi robes to give out to 35 lucky Jedi-in-training (Padawans, if you will). Abby and I also handed out exclusive Star Wars-themed Stack Exchange stickers to a couple hundred of the hundreds of people in attendance. The battle itself was a ridiculous amount of fun for everyone there, including the spectators. It was a real only-in-New-York experience to see people from every walk of life playfully unite to live out their inner Jedi fantasies.
Keep an eye on Newmindspace’s website for future events. This type of all-inclusive fun is what the world needs more of. Also, the world needs more stickers (we ran out).
