What’s a New York Comic Con without a panel from AMC’s The Walking Dead?This year's panel was extra special because Norman Reedus, Paola Lázaro, showrunner Angela Kang, and Chief Content Officer of the The Walking Dead Universe Scott M. Gimple joined the YouTube chat. They dropped some behind the scenes info, shared stories, and just generally geeked out. A one of a kind con experience.

Adapting the Grishaverse with Leigh Bardugo and Eric Heisserer

Author Leigh Bardugo sat down with showrunner Eric Heisserer to talk about adapting the Grishaverse for Netflix. They spoke about everything from ships to being goth kids to crying over seeing the actors in costume for the first time. Leigh also surprised fans with the first clip of the score from composer Joseph Trapanese. It’s called the Grisha Theme and I have to admit I GOT CHILLS. It’s incredible.

Fans were HYPE to learn more about Dylan O’Brien’s fun new monster-post-apocalyptic-rom-com, Love and Monsters. The panel was full of jokes, fun behind- the-scenes clips, and love between the cast members. You could really tell they all loved working together and had a good time making this movie.


Metaverse Presents 'Lost' Anniversary Fan Q&A With Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse

Fans finally got to ask Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof all their burning Lost questions in this special anniversary panel. And while they didn’t answer every question fans have had over the decade, they gave compelling reasons as to why they decided to keep some things mysterious. It was great not only to look back, but to get insight into their thought process in creating this iconic series. 

Entertainment Weekly and Universal Present Women Who Kick Ass - The 355

The women of the 355 panel took questions from fans during their panel...and those fans turned out to be fellow cast members Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramirez! Sebastian asked Jessica Chastain what it was like working with him again, this time on Earth (the last time they worked together it was in space on The Martian). Edgar asked about what kind of special secret agent skill the women would want to have. It was a special experience getting to see all these incredibly talented actors together on one panel.

In this panel we will discuss how to fall in love with fitness and channel your inner superhero as well as what it means to love yourself throughout the process. Cosplay and fitness should both feel empowering. Let’s have a conversation about how to feel better in our bodies in and out of cosplay.

    NYCC 2021 | What a Drag! A Panel on drag and cosplay!

    From Video Games to Comics Anime and more come explore a world where Drag meets Cosplay! This inclusive panel of queens kings and everything in between will be having an open discussion about cosplaying their favorite characters through the queer lens as well as challenges we face melding the two artforms together within the industry of drag.
 We'll touch on a range of topics including our favorite cosplays how we create our performances and creating art that honors source materials while also being culturally responsible and avoiding cultural appropriation. We believe that drag and cosplay are for everyone and that there is so much both communities can teach each other about their respective art forms in order to help everyone grow as transformation artists. So come with your questions (even those filled with tea or shade!) and let’s talk about nerdy drag! Moderated by Crimson Kitty (Mx. Nerd NY 2018) and special guest Erika Klash
