Blizzplanet: 2011 New York Comic Con Coverage

NYCC_2011_Logo_HIGH

The 2011 New York Comic Con was celebrated at the Jacobs & Javits Center through October 13-16. Gear on hand, I landed at the event on Saturday and visited the Insight Editions booth in search of details of the upcoming Diablo III: Book of Cain.

From there I headed to the Simon & Schuster, Inc. / Premiere Collectible booths to find out if there were any upcoming novels in the horizon. There was no exhibition or posters of upcoming products, but they stock up their tables with all the latest World of Warcraft, StarCraft II and Diablo III tie-in novels, and continuously played all Blizzard Entertainment cinematics on a screen monitor to catch the attention of bystanders.

Nate Kenyon signed copies of StarCraft: Ghost–Spectres at the Premiere Collectibles booth.

The Legendary Pictures booth exhibited the prop items used in their films. No details of the Warcraft film surfaced when I asked a representative, nor will there be updates at BlizzCon.

The DC Comics and Diamond Distributors booths were mostly focused on The New 52 and the Batman: Arkham City video game this year. The booths were crowded, but unless I missed checking every corner of the booth space for the first time I didn’t see any World of Warcraft or StarCraft comic books and action figures.

Finally, the ESL Intel Extreme Masters tournament took place at the New York Comic Con with StarCraft II matches.

Check out the photos and videos taken at each booth.
