Staten Island’s Richmond City Media, hit the New Dorp Comic Con this weekend and documented their experience with the comic fans and cosplayers alike. In the beautifully produced clip above, viewers can join RCM’s Matthew Provenzano as he makes a round at the con. Here’s what Joseph Soldano of the Advance had to say:
“Staten Island’s comic book store trinity joined forces to make sure this inaugural event went off without a hitch.
That’s right, JHU Comics of New Dorp, Comic Book Jones of Mariners Harbor and Hypno-Tronic Comics of St. George were all in the house as fanboys and fangirls came together to create a united front for S.I.’s very own version of Comic Con.
Like the New York and San Diego incarnations that inspired it, New Dorp Comic Con 2016 (yes, there are already rumors of annual event status) hosted several panels and events throughout the day: From prestigious writers and artists to comic book experts teaching guests about the history of comic book collecting and how to become a collector.”

The event, organized by New Dorp High School student Megan Fisher, took place on Saturday May 21st and was covered by NY1 and The Staten Island Advance. Richmond City Media is a production team working in film, video and other media platforms.
