Meet the spectacular cosplayers of New York’s annual Comic Con. HEROES & VILLAINS: A PHOTOGRAPHIC ODYSSEY INTO THE FANTASTIC WORLD OF COSPLAY is lifelong comic book fan and renowned photographer Andrew Boyle’s homage to the devoted fans of the pop cultural phenomenon that is New York Comic Con. Boyle captures more than 200 cosplayers at NYCC in a series of stunning photographs and interviews taken from 2012 to 2015, celebrating the incredible pageantry of expression, talent, inclusivity, creativity, and fandom that is at the heart of the cosplay community.
Featuring chapters on “Capes & Cowls,” “The Assembly of Rogues,” “Legends of Anime and Manga,” “Realms of Screen & Sound,” and “Cartridge Crusaders,” this vibrant collection showcases recreations and reinterpretations
of the fearless heroes and diabolical arch-nemeses of comics and cartoons, idols of the illustrated and animated worlds, beloved and despised characters from television and film, and the heroic saviors and unscrupulous plunderers of video games.
