New York Comic Con 2014 was overflowing with comic book, movie, tv, and game news. But what kind of comic book blog would we be if we didn't cover our cosutmed brethern, aka cosplayers. We took a lot of photos of sexy, creative, funny, well execuited, and not so well executed cosplay from all walks of geekdom. This Flickr slideshow has most of them, except for one missing iPhone worth, the owner of which will remain nameless. Enjoy!
I know this is going to make a lot of long-time fans very happy.

A new Godzilla movie trailer dropped on YouTube this week. Yeah, so there is really nothing about this that sucks. In fact, this represents the exact logical negation of suck. And if nothing else it totally confirms that Brian Cranston is king of the world.

Did anyone see the mini-zombie apocalypse cooked up by AMC for the launch of The Walking Dead's new season? Pedestrians and other fauna of Union Square last Friday morning would have been surprized by the grey/blackened/bleeding hands reaching for them suddenly from a sidewalk grate (or come to think of it, may have ignored it completely). I rarely get down that way anymore, but being the exciteable type, I might've stomped a few zombie hands over this. I gotta give them credit though. With the weather like it's been, these lightly dressed zombies have a lotta-- er-- body heat.

If you get your new issues of Marvel comic books from Barnes & Noble or Books-A-Million, odds are you don't exist anyway, but if you do you're going to have to figure out an alternative game plan. Marvel is dropping big-box books stores from it's distribution plan. Graphic novels will still be found in stock, alongside the King James Bible, and the latest extended edition of Fifty Shades of Grey. It makes sense. I don't remember the last time I've even seen comics in a Barnes & Noble. Or knew anyone who bought comics at Barnes & Noble.
