So, Day 1 of NYCC…
While everyone swarms over Artists Alley looking for that elusive sketch or signature, or the main show floor for variants and limited edition books, it's easy to forget all the other great stuff that's available at NYCC.
T-Shirts have caught my eye especially and here are three of them:
The spoilerific(ish) Walking Dead shirt, riffing on the classic Ramones logo. I do find myself wondering why Michonne is listed but not Maggie. After all, she did appear in the series before Michonne… (Available at the Image stand, but in very limited quantities)
Joey Spiotto's great Avengers shirt continues his style of retro cartoon album covers. His previous Firefly, Dr Horrible and Buffy covers sold like gangbusters when they appeared on Teefury.com, so if you like his style, or just want an Avengers shirt that's a little different, go pick one up from the Marvel booth. You can see more of Joey's art here. Definitely a guy you're going to see more work from.
Lastly, Midtown Comics are selling an exclusive tee based on Cyclops' most recent X-Men uniform. Originally designed by John Cassaday for Astonishing X-Men and worn through to AvX. It's certainly one of the best ways of showing whose side you backed in AvX.
The last shirt I'm going to mention isn't available to buy, but is one that garnered more than a few comments yesterday. It's my own feelings on the outcome of Marvel's AvX crossover. No, they're not available anywhere else, but I thought I'd share it with you all.
