Hey folks, Ambush Bug here. So you’re all in a huff because you didn’t get to check out the New York Comic Con this year (October 11-14th). Well, fear not. AICN COMICS is here to help you out. Friend of AICN COMICS Jamie Coville took video of some choice panels at this year’s NYCC and was kind enough to share them with all of us. Check out James’ site here. And look for more panels all week from the 2012 NYCC!
