    #HelloHighlights: NY Comic Con 2019 In 25 Photos

    The East Coast's largest pop culture convention returned to Gotham City this month. Once again, ReedPop's New York Comic Con (NYCC) drew massive numbers of fans to the Javits Center in midtown Manhattan for the the latest in movies, graphic novels, comics, anime, manga, video games, toys, and television.

    Hello! Hi! :)

    I was thrilled to attend NYCC again because it's just fun seeing adults dressed up as their favorite super heroes, super villains, zombies, vampires, Marty McFly, or The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

    As always, you'll see the classics such as Superman.

    Of course, you'll see newer characters, too. There were plenty of Power Rangers at Pop Insider's kickoff party on 3 October, in partnership with Mad Libs, Cosplayers Getting Coffee, NY Avengers, Disguise, and Bad Aim.

    My guest, Hamadi Henderson found himself surrounded by Fuggler (Funny Ugly Monster) dolls.

    On Friday, I started my day at Kimpton Ink48 Hotel, where Funko hosted a special appearance by famous graffiti artist Leonard Hilton McGurr, known as Futura.

    Funko also offered information about product drops and announcements for Frozen II and Star Wars.

    Yes, I'm a Star Wars fan.

    I'm also a SpongeBob Squarepants fan, so I was giddy at the sight of The Krusty Krab in the Javits Center.

    Others spent more of their time at SYFY Wire corner.

    Many others.

    Across the floor, I discovered Super Creative's anime-inspired mobile RPG Epic Seven, which broke into the Top 10 games by revenue on the Google Play Store in February.

    The Marvel area was unsurprisingly packed with enthusiastic fans.

    I needed food, as usual. I found it at the official after party of NYCC: Wendy's 'Heroes After Dark' powered by New York Comic Con and Fandom, at Sony Hall.

    Chromeo performed for guests dining on Wendy’s specialty menu and indulging in exclusive Game of Thrones-themed cocktails featuring the new Johnnie Walker A Song of Ice and A Song of Fire limited edition whiskies.

    The Wendy's event supported charity partner, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
