ACF 223: NY ComicCon 2009

Well, I wasn't able to make it to last night's world premiere of Takashi Miike's Yatterman. Bummer! But I heard that it was a fantastic evening for those who were there, so I'm happy for them.

This afternoon I did make it to the convention, and it was quite a scene. Last year I only went for a brief time on Friday afternoon, and though I expected a large crowd on a Saturday afternoon (especially given the first mild, sunny day we've had here in New York for quite awhile), I wasn't prepared for the mass of humanity that crowded almost every aisle. As the pictures below show, there was no shortage of great costumes on view.

Thanks to all of you who agreed to let me take your picture and run it here at AsianCineFest.
