Thanks to everyone who came out to last week's annual io9 + Kotaku Cosplay Ball during New York Comic Con! It was packed with great cosplayers -- to the point that not everyone who showed up could get in (to be fair, we throw a hell of a party). Luckily, we have a massive gallery of those well-dressed souls who attended for everyone who couldn't attend.


New York Comic Con 2017 may not have had as many spoilers and reveals as its San Diego counterpart, but it was bursting with epic cosplay, including Pickle Ricks, Itachi Uchida fighting Wonder Woman, and a giant oceanic gown. Check out this video montage of the best and brightest from this year's event.


Batman Ninja, the upcoming animated film coming from Warner Bros. Japan and directed by JoJo's Bizarre Adventure's Jumpei Mizusaki, is a simple enough idea to wrap your mind around: Batman and co. are flung back through time to medieval Japan. But the few seconds of footage screened today at New York Comic Con showed that the story writer Kazuki Nakashima (Kamen Rider Fourze) and character designer Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai) have crafted is unlike any Batman story we've ever seen. Though the movie isn't quite done yet ahead of its 2018 release, it's already one of the most visually daring and astonishing Batman stories Warner Bros. has ever produced.
