LEAGUECAST #148 – NEW YORK COMIC-CON 2016 Recap & Review


It’s our big annual New York Comic-Con recap edition of The LeagueCast! Join Jeff, Adam, and Shawn as they recap their adventures from one of the biggest pop culture conventions in the world – this year drawing well over 180,000 attendees! The gang kicks off the show with the highlight of the show – the insanely awesome Marvel/Netflix Iron Fist panel, which featured tons of exclusive footage from the show as well as mind-blowing guests appearing on stage. Then it’s on to a day-by-day recap of the sights and sounds experienced on the show floor and in the off-site locations, such as panels for Stranger Things, Ash Vs. Evil Dead, Voltron: Legendary Defender, and a trip to an invite-only world premiere screening of footage from War For The Planet Of The Apes!

The guys also have a ton of fun discussing the crazy, sexy, and cool cosplayers spotted on the floor, getting their photo taken with Stan Lee, hitting exhibits like the Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience at the USS Intrepid, taking selfies in the South Park village display, doing goofy kung-fu poses at the Iron Fist photo op at the Marvel booth, getting hit on by sexy Starfleet officers at the Star Trek Beyond interactive booth, and tons more! You’ll also get previews of upcoming bonus audio interviews with cast members and creative minds from Ash Vs. Evil Dead, Agents Of SHIELD, Voltron: Legendary Defender, Guillermo Del Toro’s Trollhunters, Comic Book Men, and Jeff got a one-on-one chat with Ahsoka Tabo herself, Ashley Eckstein!

About Author

Jeff Carter

Jeff is the defining voice of his generation. Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.
