Even though I’m a comics fan myself and could have found plenty to do without it, the main reason I wanted to get to Comic Con was to play D&D. Here were the different parts of Dungeons & Dragons at NYCC.
The convention doesn’t go far from what I’ve come to expect from Comic Cons. The exhibit hall is the big thing, which contains a mix of publisher booths, seller booths, creator booths (artist alley), and assorted other miscellany. The big difference is how packed everything is. Except during the very end before the hall closed, it was hard to get almost anywhere, and even harder to get pictures (which you want to do, since it’s quite a spectacle). Plus you have events with back-ups: signings and portfolio reviews all took place in the same space, which caused a few choke-points.
