This episode, Ian does his best attempt at a Pants on the Floor, as he had the pleasure of returning to New York Comic Con for its first in-person event since 2019. Listen in for his thoughts and experiences on and at the con, as well as some interviews with friends new and old, including the one and only Jamal Igle as we discuss many things, including his upcoming collaboration with Scott Snyder on "Dudley Datson and the Forever Machine", Fabian Lelay of "We Are the Danger", Eli Neugeboren of "Sharkary vs. Tsunami Crab" and he contributed to the new recreation of Barry Windsor Smith's Weapon X fittingly known as "Weapon Echh", Dani Colman of "The Unfinished Corner", and then we wrap up with final thoughts on the con from Ian and his friends Kris Naudus, David Gold, and Claire Samuels, including our take on the Star Trek: Prodigy premiere, and what it's like to cosplay the "it" costume at a convention. Welcome back, cons! (1:34:23)
