Video: Comic Con Nerds React To Metal at NYCC
The dictionary has two definitions for the term nerd: “a foolish or contemptible person who lacks social skills or is boringly studious” and “a single-minded expert in a particular technical field.”
Both of these descriptions can be applied to metalheads, and indeed the MetalSucks staff. But can it be true that metalheads, for all their swagger and leather and umlauts, are actually a bunch of fucking nerds? Just because “I Am The Law” is about a comic book doesn’t mean it’s total geekery…right?
In my endless quest for total coverage, I decided to head down to the Javits Center in Manhattan and speak to some of the attendees of New York Comic Con, an event known for drawing a crowd of, shall we say, the indoor kids. I asked them about metal and comic books, and even played them a little Enforcer. Their response? Well, you’ll just have to take a look, true believer.
