The great thing about conventions is everyone has their own experience. For example, io9 did a tour of the Star Wars booth at New York Comic Con and certainly thought it was cool. But later in the weekend, some unsuspecting attendees got a much, much different experience.

As a kid, Vita Ayala grew up loving Wonder Woman comics. As an adult, they have gotten to write Diana of Themyscira twice. But Ayala isn't content with just living the dream of working on a big corporate superhero. The New York City native is making comics that give voice to people without money, power or privilege.
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.

Constantine is coming back to the CW, a bit more two-dimensional than the last time we saw him on Arrow, through a new animated series.

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.
