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.
