NY Wintercon 2016: Comic Books, Art, and Merchandise

Wintercon 2016

Many people attend conventions in hope of meeting their favorite celebrities and hearing cool stories in panels or Q&As. But for many geeks out there, conventions are the place to be for cool merchandise, comics, and a chance to meet and support favorite and independent artists in the Artist Alley. Earlier this month, I attended NY Wintercon at the Resorts World Casino NYC in Queens, NY and after covering my panels and conducting a few interviews, I did what many fans did — I hit the convention floor to do some holiday shopping for both my family… and for myself.

Wintercon 2016: The Warriors Reunion panel

NY Wintercon took over the Resorts World Casino in NYC earlier this month and one of the main attractions was a full-scale reunion for The Warriors, the 1979 film directed by Walter Hill.

Moderated by The Furies (in spectacular cosplay), the arch rival gang of the Coney Island Warriors, the panel welcomed James Remar (Ajax), Michael Beck (Swan), David Harris (Cochise), Dorsey Wright (Cleon), Terry Michos (Vermin), and Thomas Waites (Fox). The panel was entirely Q&A with fans, which was cool since the Main Stage area was packed with Warriors fans, many in full cosplay.

Adrienne Barbeau The Fog

One of the highlights of NY Wintercon 2016 at Resorts World Casino in Queens last weekend were, in fact, the queens themselves — the scream queens, that is. The convention honored and celebrated the best in science fiction and fantasy and amongst the guests was the Queen of Horror and a legend in the business, Adrienne Barbeau. Barbeau has spent the better part of 40 years in TV and films and many of those years were spent in the horror and sci-fi genre in classics like The Fog, Escape From New York, Swamp Thing, and Creepshow. I caught up with her at her at the convention, where I was able to snag a short interview one with my favorite scream queens.

Celebrating the best in science fiction and fantasy, NY Wintercon crash landed at the Resorts World Casino NYC in Queens this past weekend. The convention played host to plenty of guests, tons of cosplayers, and more comics and merchandise than you look can flip through. Day 1 on Saturday saw a main stage panel for possibly the most popular TV show going on today, AMC’s The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead panel featured Khary Payton and Austin Amelio. Payton joined the cast for Season 7, which is currently underway, to play King Ezekiel, who runs The Kingdom, another “utopian” community in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of TWD. Payton talked about his transition from 15 years of voiceover work to working on the hit television series.
