Are you simultaneously terrified and fascinated by the prospect of nuclear war? With two world leaders playing chicken with their respective “end of the world” buttons, it’s a weird time to be alive. But hey, that’s why we have entertainment for!
Another whirlwind weekend of New York Comic Con is in the books. For me, it was two full days of lines, panels, and free swag. So overall, I’d call the weekend a success.

New York Comic Con 2016 is officially in the books. It was a whirlwind of early mornings, late nights, long lines, and lots of TV. From panels and virtual reality experiences to books and sneak peeks there was never a shortage of things to do and see. In my two days at NYCC I was able to catch nine panels and spend some time wandering the showroom floor. Here’s the highlights:
When the new Star Trek series debuts exclusively on CBS All Access in January 2017, you won’t be able to binge watch it all in one sitting, well not at first anyways. CBS will treat it like any other broadcast show and release just one new episode a week.
