Hell’s Kitchen is world-famous for its comic book heroes — and today they return to the Javits Center at New York Comic Con.

CBS reported this morning that fans were already lining up in the early hours to be first to get into the show.

It’s the first time the event has taken place since the pandemic. You will be seeing hoards of costumed attendees around the neighborhood until Sunday. You also might spot some celebrities too — William Shatner, George Takei and David Harbour are all scheduled to appear on the Comic Con stage.

The organizers are excited to return to New York, with their websute enthusing, “New York Comic Con is your event. Where you can feel unafraid to geek out. Where you’re accepted and embraced for being yourself. Where you can experience the best in pop culture because no matter what fandom you’re passionate about, we have it waiting here for you.

“Be inspired by award-winning comic artists and Japanese anime creators. Get star struck over your favorite TV and film idols. Treat yourself to exclusive fandom gear and unique artwork. But most importantly, create all of those memories with the people you care about the most. Because this event is for you. To embrace your inner hero or root for the villain. To geek out as a family. To celebrate a weekend together you’ll never forget.”

If you’ve forgotten what the show looks like, here’s our photo coverage from Issue One of W42ST Magazine in 2015.
