The annual NYC fan convention known as the New York Comic Con has descended upon the city once again, causing thousands of TV, film and comic fans to flock to the Javits Center in Manhattan to experience the four-day pop culture extravaganza. As you may or may not know, NYCC is a big deal, no, scratch that, a HUGE deal. Attendance for the famed convention has grown immensely since the Con’s inception in 2006. Last year, over 133,000 fans purchased tickets to NY Comic Con (didja see our pics from 2013 here, here, here and here?), and this year aims to shatter records as well, being as tickets for the four-day event sold out in mere minutes back in June.

As per norm, we’re covering NYCC once again, bringing you as many sweet shots from the weekend as we can. Shenanigans kicked off yesterday (10/9), where we bumped into a slew of characters including Shane from ‘The Walking Dead,’ R2-D2, Jerry Only of Misfits, Vega and Zangief from ‘Street Fighter’ and many others. Check out photos from Thursday below and stay tuned for way more shots from the weekend to come.
