New York Comic Con supports the popular arts, and that is especially seen in The Block.
The Block brings together art, design, collectible toys and fashion of the underground pop culture scene, along with the tastemakers, trend setters, artists, thinkers and the brands that they create.
There’s lots of cool stuff to see, like an art fair for cool kids.
I’ll try and notate everything I saw… but apologies to the many creators! You can view them all here!
I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010.
I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the graphic novel gospel since 1994.
I’m a bookseller, a librarian, an amateur scholar, a cool uncle, and a comics evangelist.
Ask me anything!
