One again the Big Apple was invaded by the nerd hordes for New York Comic Con, the East Coast’s premier comic book and pop culture convention with a size that nearly rivals the grand con daddy, SDCC. Duty bound Bastards that we are, we sent our dynamic duo of Jason Tabrys and Shelly V. into the forest of sniffles, cosplay, news, and info to discover the very best of the con. In this first of two EXTRA BIG ASSED articles, we’re goona look at day one from the show. We’re talking bonkers cosplay, toys that will make you drool, and all the cool sights from the show floor at the Jacob Javitz Center.

Tomorrow, we’ll have even more cosplay, toys, and sights, and over the next few days look for the rest of our NYCC coverage, which will include exclusive interviews with some of comicdoms biggest creators. But right now, feast your eyes on all of the Con goodness. (more…)

Speaking of Christmas, although that’s what this whole column – and yes – series of columns are about, let’s turn to something more of the Christmas toy persuasion. Now I’m a recent convert to Community, and because we’ve had to go upwards of seven months now without a new episode, you can relive the glory days with this set up figurines based on the 2010 Claymation-inspired Christmas special. And bonus, the NBC store now has them on for half price. Price: $49.99 from $99.65 [NBCUniversal Store]
