Walking through New York Comic Con—the massive pop culture convention that swelled to more than 250,000 attendees last year—feels like journeying into an endless maze, maneuvering amid a crowded mall on Black Friday and experiencing a sensory overload akin to a kid in a candy store for the first time, all at once.
ReedPop’s four-day convention this year is once again bringing together avid and casual fans of comics, gaming, movies, TV shows, anime, graphic novels, manga and cosplay. Aside from panels and parties, one of the main attractions is the main exhibition floor at NYC’s Javits Center, where countless businesses and entrepreneurs from around the world set up shop to sell their merchandise, including ONE37pm favorite Arcade1Up, a home arcade company (yup, you can get your very own arcade system).
Our Photo Editor Sarah Jacobs ventured into the merch area to scope out the drippiest merch items that you can buy online even if you aren’t at NYCC 2019. Let’s dive in.
