Motherboard traveled from Brooklyn to the crowded island of Manhattan for the annual New York Comic Con, where more than 100,000 people gathered to gape at zany costumes, games and gadgets. This year’s vibes were positively twisted. We went searching for wizards, the Monarch, booth babes, storm troopers and Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
What we actually found was more of a mishmash of awkward children pretending to be adults, Glee freaks, wandering droids, “Bronies,” lots and lots (and lots) of creeps and (spoiler alert) an amazing pulled pork sandwich. Check out some photos we snapped while we were there if you’ve never seen a tattoo of a zombie-themed recreation of Star Wars or two ninjas making out.
Enjoy the trailer above and stay tuned to Motherboard for when this glittery, kind of inappropriate soiree into the dark corners of Comic Con airs this Wednesday, November 2nd.
