Comic_con_banner

The second annual New York Comic Convention was held over the past weekend at the Jacob Javits Center, and we here at MTV Games decided to scope out the scene and give you full coverage of freaks, geeks and games. Throughout the weekend, we checked out the new Halo ActionClix, the Marvel Trading Card Game, the Stargate Online Trading Card Game as well as the Xbox 360 version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game. We also got a sneak peak at The Darkness game inspired by the Marc Silvestri comic as well as the Fantastic Four title based on the summer sequel Rise of the Silver Surfer. All of this and more will be featured in our upcoming G-Hole show, but until then, take a look at some of the photos we took after the jump... Enjoy!
