The NYC Comic Con opened October 13-16th and it was amazing! There was a ton of activities planned, panels and workshops which were great.! But lets not forget the costumes! Check out our photo gallery to see them. It was exciting to see a prominent Bronx presence at the convention. BX! This year Bronx Heroes teamed up with Baron Ambrosia to promoting his new comic book The Adventures of Baron Ambrosia, drawn by Ray Felix. It was a huge success, we had cocoa beetles, a jabinero pepper give away, rice wine fermenting in snake and an enthusiastic crowd. Can't wait till next year! You can visit Baron at http://www.bronxflavor.com/ or http://baronambrosia.com/ .
