We begin our photo coverage of New York Comic Con with Friday, the first full day of the show.  Although it was rainy, the crowds were heavy, including some that looked to be of school age.  Over the full three and a half day show (there was a preview night Thursday evening), over 100,000 people attended, according to show organizers, with a more complete tally to follow.

And over at the Marvel booth—beware the treachery of Loki (male and female versions!).

Marvel’s booth had a single-minded focus.

Chevrolet had examples of its Camaro, Volt, and Sonic models (see "Chevrolet Is Vehicle Sponsor of NYCC") in its exhibit area at the show.

Princess Peach and Mario make such a cute couple.

This con-goer didn’t leave home without her trusty Photon Pack.
