This convention was great for artists and fans alike. It featured a range of panelists, exhibitors, and had a fantastic size Artist Alley. There were so many awesome cosplayers in attendance. I had some fun photographing some attendees and got to chat with some talented creators.

Series/Creators to check out!
Super excited for the Anime/Hip Hop comic series TEPHLON FUNK created by Stephane Metayer and designed by David Tako. I picked up issues 1-5. The series heavily influenced by NYC and Hip Hop is about a young girl from Queensbridge and pays tribute to the 5 boroughs.
I attended a fantastic panel by the NOIR CAESAR team. Noir Caesar features an innovative team of talented creators. Check out their variety of Manga’s on HYPE MANGA HERE. They are also currently working on releasing an Anime in the near future!
Till next year! ~GothamGeekGirl~
