The Javits Convention Center in Manhattan was bustling with activity all weekend where throngs of fans gathered to meet their favorite celebrities, discover new artists, and showed off their wears.

Yes, the costumes are always the main event.

Mark Ruffalo, Jason Momoa, David Tenant; and the casts of Riverdale and The Walking Dead were some of the celebrity guests who participated in the annual event, where entertainment companies announce exciting news from various movies, TV shows, comics, and video games.

NYCC is an event to see and be seen, and fans really upped their cosplay game this weekend.


Things were looking Up.

Highlights from this year's NYCC included an extended look at Warner Bros.'s Aquaman and Netflix's array of offerings like The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and The Haunting of Hill House.

Den of Geek shared other exciting announcements from 2018 NYCC:
