(December 2, 2017) WinterCon New York Comic and Sci-Fi Expo made its bigger and better return to the Resorts World Casino NY, in Queens. Sci-Fi enthusiasts, super-hero fans, and cross-genre cosplayers were given an entire weekend to expand on their fantasies.

Bargain seekers arrived early, and started digging eagerly into the hundreds of crates and boxes of new and vintage comic books, and graphic novels. Booths were abuzz with original art works, memorabilia, hand-crafted collectibles, toy miniatures, props, outfits, etc. If it said SCI-FI, you name it, it was there.

WinterCon 2017, also, reunited cast members from the cult classic film ‘Blade Runner’ (1982) and the pioneering Sci-Fi TV show ‘Buck Rogers.’ A first-ever Cosplay Cabaret, and their annual highlight Cosplay Contest, added to the excitement of Saturday’s experience. Star Wars ruled, as scores of Jedi and Sith, Rebels and Storm Troopers, Astromech droids and Imperial pilots rubbed elbows in a tacit ballet.

Though only a small fraction in size to the NY Comic Con pop culture experience, WinterCon NY has its own unique flavor and brand of intimacy that makes itself more conducive to a visceral fan environment which could easily get lost within a larger convention.
