Cosplay is such a fascinating form of self expression. While I know only a few people who put more than a couple hours thought into their Halloween costumes, cosplayers spend months to years working on costumes. There will be a massive cosplay gallery here on Comic POW! near the end of the coverage in which you’ll see some of the great costumes that people have made.

With Ireland Reid, as with many other cosplayers, this is an expression of something she’s wanted to do since she was a little kid. It is a way for her to showcase her love of comics and her love of creation all at once. Watch our interview to learn more about what drives her to do this professionally. (She does mention she has a M-F job, but there is no doubt in my mind that Ms Reid is also a professional when it comes to cosplay)

Back in the 90s Eric only read Marvel comics although he loved Batman: The Animated Series. After a 2 year dalliance (2011-2013) with Marvel and DC, Eric now almost exclusively reads Image Comics.
