This year’s Rhode Island Comic Con was a general success. The Comic Con attendance greatly exceeded the organizer’s expected turnout compared to all prior years. In fact, the Rhode Island Convention Center exceeded their expected numbers compared to all other events… ever! (Nerd pride.) However, the convention was not without problems. You can read about the over-capacity debacle here:
But for now, let’s focus on the other experiences, which were generally positive. The con took place on November 1st – 2nd with a Halloween party the night before (on Halloween). The party was decently attended. I enjoyed the drink list which had tasty choices such as the Ecto-1, the Ooze, and the Beetlegeuise. And of course, it was a great place for the cosplay to begin.
Below are some cosplay photos from the Rhode Island Comic Con 2013 in Providence, RI, Nov 2-3. I’m Ming the Merciless being pictured with William Zabka (Johnny from The Karate Kid) and SAM JONES (Flash Gordon of course).

We haven’t had a “Top 10” post in a bit. Everyone seems to love those, but there’s so many out there, coming up with an original idea for them can be a bit daunting. But now I’ve an idea, and I’d like you, our readers to help out building this one. Why am I turning to you? Have you ever read the comments on the lists out there written solely by the authors? EVERYONE has their own advice. I don’t consider myself a definitive authority. Yes, I love comics, but I know there are plenty I’ve never read.

When submitting, please include a quick review, images if you have any, and a link to your own blog/page/twitter if you have one so I can add attribution to the entry. The team and I will check out the reviews and pick from there.
So I had a bit of a time getting to NYCC on Friday morning and missed one of the panels I was really looking forward to. It was a preview of the upcoming blu-ray release of the film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. More specifically, the animated short “The Great Calamity” which will be included on the disc.
