As I promised, I’ve compiled some of the videos and images of my trip to the New York Comic Con into a video for my YouTube Channel, Jack’s World. Please note that this is only a fraction of the footage I took. There was just so much to see and so many people to meet. There was just no way I could fit it into one video, but I did my best to make sure it captured the experience. Enjoy!

It’s finally here!
I’ve been waiting all year for it and with more anticipation than usual!
The New York Comic Con is finally here!
As I’m writing this, I struggle contain my excitement. It’s a familiar feeling I experience every year I’ve gone, but I’m still not tired of it. This year promises to be extra special.
After two years of being bogged down by the COVID-19 pandemic, New York Comic Con is set to return at full strength. That means no reduced capacity and no limited vendors. That means I’ll have to plan extra carefully in order to attend all the panels and get all the autographs I hope to get. But I’m willing to make that effort.
I even have a new costume this year that I can’t wait to show off. It cost me extra to get it customized, but I already feel it’s worth every penny.
So I hope New York is ready for me! Because I’m so ready for this.
New York Comic Con 2022, here I come!
The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. In years past, whenever I’ve gone to New York Comic Con, I’ve shared my collection of pictures in the days that follow. I want to continue doing that, but this time I’d like to use my YouTube video to share both pictures and videos I took. I also set it to some epic music. Enjoy!
I don’t have much to say this morning. I’m still exhausted after all the festivities, but in the best possible way. We may have lost a year because of a global pandemic, but I can safely say that the New York Comic Con is as awesome as ever.
There’s a lot I’d like to share.
I have plenty of awesome pictures.
I also have some souvenirs that I can’t wait to frame and mount on my wall.
For now, though, I’m just too exhausted.
Thank you, New York Comic Con!
Thank you for putting this on after such a rough couple of years!
We needed it.
It’s finally here! After an agonizing two-year hiatus, as well as a global pandemic, the big day is finally here. The New York Comic Con has arrived!
As we speak, I’ve got my costume laid out. I’ve got my stack of comics that I want to get autographed ready to go. Words simply cannot do justice to how excited I am. I’ve already belabored how agonizing it was to see the New York Comic Con cancelled last year. After today, I hope I can completely put that behind me.
If you also lucky enough to go, I hope you’re as excited as me. I intend to get plenty of pictures to capture the moment. For now, though, I’m off to the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.
New York Comic Con, I’m on my way!
I’ve been sitting on this news for a while. In my defense, I needed some time to make sure it was real and make the necessary plans. I make no apologies because I’m just too excited to announce this.
I got my ticket to New York Comic Con 2021!
Just typing that put a big smile on my face. Words cannot do justice to the joy I felt once it sank in.
Now, I’ve been to New York Comic Con before. I’ve shared my experience on this site on multiple occasions. It has been my favorite annual tradition since I started going back in 2013. Being in that big convention hall, surrounded by so many spectacles and people who share my love of comics, is such a thrill. Every year, it seems, I find another reason to love it.
However, last year was nothing short of heartbreaking for reasons I don’t want to dwell on. Even though I expected it, the news that the New York Comic Con was cancelled was just devastating on so many levels. It felt weird in those first few weeks of October, not dressing up and spending time in New York City. I had serious concerns that I might go another year without going to a comic book convention.
Well, I can set most of those concerns aside for now. I have my ticket. I made my travel plans. I’m even making plans to wear a different costume this year. Again, I cannot overstate how excited I am for this.
It’s not just a sign that the world is healing and things are steadily returning to a sense of normalcy. It’s a chance to make up for what was lost last year. Every year I go to New York Comic Con is special, but I’m more determined than ever to make this year even more special.
I’ll be sure to share some of those plans as they materialize. I don’t want to confirm anything now, but you can be certain I won’t be able to contain my joy, more so than usual. Also, if anyone else is going to the New York Comic Con this year, I encourage them to follow that same spirit.
Last year sucked.
This year, more than most, is worth making extra awesome.
With Halloween right around the corner, costumes are becoming a more relevant issue. A lot of kids are already contemplating what they’ll dress up as when they go trick-or-treating. Many more adults are probably contemplating what they can dress up as, either to attend a party or get a good laugh from someone.
It helps that more than a few of those adults will be seeking to dress as something overtly sexy. Sexy costumed versions of things have always existed, but it feels like they’ve become more mainstream in recent years. As a fan of looking sexy and dressing sexy, I’m all for it. I know it pisses off some people who are eager to get outraged over certain costumes, but those people don’t deserve our attention or sympathy.
For me, sexy costumes are even more relevant and not just because Halloween is coming soon. I just got back from another amazing day at New York Comic Con. Like in years past, I dressed up to share the experience with plenty of fellow cos-players. While my costume wasn’t that sexy, there were plenty of others who dare to push the envelope.
Sexy costumes aren’t specific to one time of the year. There’s really nothing from stopping anyone from wearing a sexy costume. When you have a lover who responds to it, then you have even more incentive. It’s fun. It’s playful. It can even be downright romantic. Between this, the Halloween spirit, and the New York Comic Con, sexy costumes are more than worthy of a Daily Sexy Musing. Enjoy!
We style our hair.
We put on a mask.
We smother ourselves with makeup, jewelry, and accessories.
We become someone else entirely.
It’s both liberating and refreshing, inhabiting the form of another. Whether born of fiction, history, or lore, we exchange our regular persona for something wildly different. Instead of blending in, we stand out. Nobody else looks, acts, and conducts themselves as we do. Our attire and demeanor is an aberration, but that’s exactly what makes it exciting.
In this new form, I feel a unique energy. Like tapping into a new source of power, I channel an outside spirit. This new persona dares to do things that I wouldn’t in my usual attire. I’ll cast you a deviant glance, implying deviant activities that you and I only contemplated in jest. Now, it’s serious. We’re not the same mundane lovers we once were.
We are superheroes saving the day.
We are monsters wreaking havoc.
We are villains causing chaos.
We are mythical figures come to life.
Filled with this energy and spirit, our love manifests in entirely new ways. I dare to be bolder, speaking in a voice that is not my own. You dare to match me every step of the way, sharing an intensity that gets my heart racing. It sends our passions into overdrive. The line between one persona and the other blurs.
Finally, it culminates.
Our new identities take over.
Our new passions are unleashed.
These costumes become more than elaborate attire. They are a new conduit for new passions. In this form, our love manifests in a very different way. It’s overwhelming, exhilarating, and even a little deviant. We know each other so well, but in these costumes, we realize just how much more there is to learn.
The last day of the New York Comic Con is a day of extended afterglow for life-long comic book fans. We’ve read the big headlines. We’ve taken in the spectacle. We’ve immersed ourselves in this wondrous celebration of comics, pop culture, and fandom. Our minds and bodies can only process so much joy. We need some time to soak it all in.
I hope that provides some appropriate context for my feelings at the moment. Having returned from another successful New York Comic Con, I can only do so much to put my sentiments into words. Every year I go, I worry that it won’t exceed the experience that I enjoyed in previous years. Every year, it still finds a way to get better.
This year gave me a fresh batch of treasured memories. I met some amazing people. I attended some awesome panels. I also got to spend some time in New York City, which is a treat in and of itself. There was so much to see and experience, but only a finite time to take it all in. Based on my experience, I like to think I got everything I could out of it.
Once again, I thank and celebrate the New York Comic Con for affirming my love of comics, superheroes, and the fans who help make it special. I also thank the amazing cos-players who give so much character and charisma to the event. You are all more than deserving of recognition for an edition of my Sexy Sunday Thoughts, and then some. Enjoy!
“Every popular sex act started as an act of deviance.”
“Even the most passionate act of lovemaking began with a dirty thought.”
“Orgasms are nature’s all-purpose anti-depressant.”
“Anyone who can fix a car, computer, or toilet is going to have some level of sex appeal to someone with little patience.”
“Masturbation isn’t something you learn as much as it is something you figure out.”
“A good night’s sleep is both a side-effect and a bonus of post-coital afterglow.”
“Technically, an orgy is the simplest manifestation of democracy if you count orgasms as votes.”
Another New York Comic Con is in the books. Between the upcoming slate of superhero movies and new upheavals in the comics, there’s plenty to look forward to. Expect me to appreciate, celebrate, and write about it all in the coming months. Thanks again, New York Comic Con! You make my year feel special.
