It was another amazing year at New York Comic Con! The artists finally get a proper set up after the convention center went through a renovation last year. With that said, there were so many new and exciting reveals. Follow along as I finally get to edit and update all the pictures from NYCC 2018.
One thing is certain, TV and Video Games dominated this years Con. There was an incredible turn out of TV networks like Netflix and HBO with a Game of Thrones pop up.
That didn't stop fans from doing what they do best! Cosplay, Comics and a massive amount of geek merchandising.
Jason, Jason everywhere...
Even on opening day, there is an intense amount of people attending this year.
Every year the Cosplay costumes get more and more detailed.
I've taken hundreds of photos this year, and I will continue to post them at the bottom of the page if you want to check back.
The roundworms from two areas of Siberia came back to life in Petri dishes, says a new scientific study.
‘We have obtained the first data demonstrating the capability of multicellular organisms for longterm cryobiosis in permafrost deposits of the Arctic,’ states a report from Russian scientists from four institutions in collaboration with Princetown University.
Some 300 prehistoric worms were analysed - and two ‘were shown to contain viable nematodes’.
‘After being defrosted, the nematodes showed signs of life,’ said a report today from Yakutia, the area where the worms were found.
‘They started moving and eating.’ The video below shows the area where they were discovered in Siberia.

This is a very interesting new theory about human evolution which I had to share.
In the 1980s, scientists learned that all humans living today are descended from a woman, dubbed “Mitochondrial Eve,” who lived in Africa between 150,000 to 200,000 years ago. This discovery, along with other evidence, suggested humans evolved from a single ancestral population is an interpretation that is not standing the test of time. The story of human evolution, as the latest research suggests, is more complicated than that.

Last year I posted a story about the infamous Black Angel Movie that has apparently been in the works for a long time. Here is the latest update. It looks like it will still be released sometime this year, and now the cast has added Rutger Hauer and John Rhys-Davies according to MovieWeb.
Here's the synopsis:
Think Game of Thrones meets Valhalla Rising, Excalibur meets Lord of the Rings. A powerful tale of ancient Celtic magic and Nordic Paganism, it’ll be gritty, dirty and heroic – everything great fantasy should be. The story follows a knight as he journeys deep into the dark underworld with the daughter of a rival king, to meet the face of evil itself and fight the Black Angel in combat. Full of drama, action and heroism, pure light is pitted against eternal darkness and damnation.
Check back for updates.
When humans get too lonely, they turn into monsters. That’s what happened to Kay. But she’s not alone – this ocean is full of creatures just like her. Finding them may be the key to changing her back. So that's the story, sounds cool to me. Look at these visuals.
I'm really digging the colors in this.
The concept is really unique.
All of this just seems refreshing as far as fantasy goes.
Check out the trailer below.
