New York Comic Con 2012 is in full swing out of the Javits Center in NYC, and trust us when we say the attendees are just as amped about geekdom as the folks at San Diego a few months back. Since the start of day one, the hordes of thousands have been piling in to get a much-needed taste of comic books, video games, and their favorite shows and movies.

We were there at the front lines snapping shots of all the cosplayers and booths so you won't have to embrace the herd of 'The Waking Dead' lovers yourself (who, by the way, look all the more scary when they're mindlessly pushing and shoving each other beneath the giant 'Walking Dead' billboard).
