    Legends at NYCC


    As the advent of fall signals the arrival of nostalgia, thousands descend upon the convention halls of New York ComicCon clad in their coveted gear. The lineup of exhibits and panels are tremendously diverse, meeting the thirsty needs of fandom.


    Here, the craftwork of each actor and crew that bring these worlds to life, is celebrated. One notable actor, Sean Bean from Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, is featured in the re-imagined second season of Legends on TNT.


    The unique and noteworthy aspect of Legends is this opportunity to view the talent of Sean Bean as he inhabits these various roles. It is “a fresh approach to story telling and not predictable.” The hashtag of #DontKillSeanBean is indicative of the passion he incites, and this spy thriller in Europe is full of intrigue.


    Other legendary characters that can be spotted at NYCC are Thor, Blade, Daredevil… Medieval and gamer heroes were also abound. The Addams family could not be missed, and crossovers such as Pulp Fiction Vader and Boba Fett are innovative cosplays.


    There is also a moving Jurassic World velociraptor to greet you at the entrance and various vendors, such as the Mad Hatter from Tiny Tops Hats, meet your costume needs.


    The endless work of legends is truly present in this convention corner of New York City.
