New York Comic-Con in Pictures

The New York Comic-Con is a sight to behold: comics, games, and all sorts of nerdy merchandise clobber the senses at every possible angle. It's a show that just can't be done justice in words (but by all means, please read our write-ups from the past couple days!). No, you need to see this thing to...

New York Comic-Con in pictures!

The outside view of the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan's West Side, where the show was held.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
An ad for Prototype roughly the size of a Manhattan skyscraper.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Square brought plenty of merchandise to sell, but no games to see.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Codemasters booth.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bit Trip Beat at the Aksys booth. This was our unofficial game of the show. How much did video producer Tyler Winegarner love it?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This much.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Champions Online may or may not feature miniature Princess Leias.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The South Peak booth.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The EA booth. We weren't allowed to take video or pictures of Battlefield, so pretend that's not there!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
People love Warhammer.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the absence of the new Turtles game, there was this relic from the past.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sega had a strong showing this year.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unsurprisingly, the Comic-Con crowd ate up Ghostbusters.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Not sure what this chair was, but FEAR 2 looked awesome nonetheless.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who watches the guy making chalk murals?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
An entire army of Pac-Men!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I imagine this is what Mario would look like if he was made of wax and left in the sun.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was excited to cover the Penny Arcade panel, but sadly I arrived late.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And finally, here's a picture of a Storm Trooper eating lunch. Just because.

Wow, there's the Armacham chair. I saw the blueprints through the viral marketing campaign, but wow. Wish I coulda been in New York just to try it out.
