It's nearly go time for the floor opening of New York Comic Con 2013, with a little over two hours remaining until the throngs arrive, with panels already running from 12 noon onward. Compared to Rich Johnston's photos and video tour last night, the booths have made a lot of progress, with banners in place and mostly book unloading filling the final minutes. But one new guest has also arrived since last night, Agent Coulson's flying red corvette LOLA from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. And I have to say, I see the attraction. Now if they are going to take her for a hover spin above the floor, that would definitely mean Marvel wins the con. We'll have to wait and see… New York Comic Con may be as "magical" a place as Rich said after all.
