Here is the second of the five cosplay galleries from New York Comic Con 2014. This is the other half of the comic-book costumes I snapped. My favorites in this batch are the Age Of X X-Men group leading off this post above, classic Green Arrow, a sweet Jubilee, an Iceman who must have caught a chill, and the most amazeballs Tintin I’ve ever seen. Seriously, he was perfect. Check the gallery after the jump and see if you agree. Perfect!

Now it’s time for everyone’s favorite part of New York Comic Con… the cosplay!

I took a metric crapton of photos this year, and I’ve split it up into five galleries with about 30-40 pictures in each. I figured since it’s Comic Con, I should probably start off with some comic book cosplay. Mind you, this includes movie versions of comic book characters, too. You’ll find them all after the jump!

Highlights this round are a fabulous disco-era Dazzler, a hot Wonder Man crossplay, a mostly-naked Namor, a ridiculously hot Spider-Man, and an adorable Jughead. Who are your favorites?

Capitol Hillbillies is a wild, raunchy, nerdy web comic that has been cracking up readers for five years. And now it’s moving from computers to bookshelves with Northwest Press‘ publication of Capitol Hillbillies Volume One! The collection chronicles the adventures of four gay guys as they navigate sex, dating, pop culture, videogames and the occasional unicorn.

You can order your own copy in either paperback or digitally by clicking here, but to find out more about the LGBT comic’s humble beginnings and why gaymers would enjoy the heck out of it, we talked with its creator, Chris Lange!

Among thousands of contemporary graphic novels filled with sparkling vampires and plastic Zombies, nowadays it is almost impossible to come across a genuinely edgy story that is deep as it is entertaining. Image Comic’s new drama-thriller series Deadly Class delivers all that and a lot more.

Set in a hyper-real 1987, in an uber gritty San Francisco, Deadly Class revolves around down-on–his-luck, homeless teenager, Marcus Lopez. Through various flashbacks it is revealed that he used to have a happy home life until a freak accident kills both of his parents and leaves him on the streets. With no relatives in America to take care of him Marcus spends his youth at terrible shelters and foster homes until he makes a run for it and ends up alone in the crime-ridden streets of San Francisco.

The first issue of the new Tomb Raider series from Dark Horse Comics is out, and I can safely say that Lara Croft is in good hands with writer Gail Simone. No stranger to penning the adventures of strong female characters, Lara’s character is well-handled here.

Preview: Tomb Raider #1

Dark Horse Comics has produced some fine licensed material based on comic books, like Mass Effect and The Last of Us. And since the Tomb Raider game from Crystal Dynamics was such a hit, it’s only natural that they’re going to be producing a new series based in that world! Now you don’t have to wait for the sequel to enjoy the further adventures of everyone’s favorite videogame heroine.

Writer Gail Simone is no stranger to writing strong female characters, having scripted comics like Wonder Woman and Batgirl, and was a natural fit to chronicle the further adventures of Lara Croft. In an editorial running in recent issues of Dark Horse Comics, the scribe admits to being a big fan of Lara’s, but skeptical of the reboot game (and Dark Horse’s request she write the new series based on it). Of course, her skepticism lasted only as long as it took to start playing the game!

Now we’re up to the third gallery of cosplay photos I took at New York Comic Con 2013. This is the second half of the comic book-themed costumes. This time around, keep an eye out for a really hot John Constantine, an impressive (if awkward to actually move around in) Elongated Man, a very cool Mysterio, as well as a super-hot Aquaman.
