Yesterday was the official kick off the New York Comic Con, and it’s off and running. I will have additional detailed posts on the events we cover, plenty of scenery and of course cosplay pics when the dust settles, but we have a few images to recap NYCC Day One at the Javits Center in Manhattan.

We started off the day even before the annual convention officially kicked off.  DC and the U.S. Postal Service hosted the official unveiling of the Limited-Edition Forever® Batman™ stamps series in honor of The Dark Knight’s 75th Anniversary. DC Entertainment’s Jim Lee and Dan DiDio as well as Batman himself were in attendance.

Adam West is at NYCC to meet fans and talk up Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s highly anticipated release of the ’60s Batman TV series. I sat in on West’s chat with the press where he shared his fond memories of playing the Caped Crusader.

You may have heard that a near mint copy of 1938’s Action Comics #1, which featured the first appearance of Superman, was recently auctioned off for a record setting $3.2 million. We tagged along with Guinness World Records to the Comic  Connect booth where the certificate acknowledging the comic book’s current place in history was presented to Vincent Zurzolo of Metropolis Collectibles, Inc.
