NYCC 2018: Go To Hell with Good Omens
Written by James Ferguson
One of my favorite parts of New York Comic Con is some of the interesting and unique booth experiences. These are more than just a table with some books or posters on them. Instead, you get up close and personal with a show, comic, or movie. One of the top booths this year was Good Omens from Amazon Prime Video called “The End is Nigh.” Fans were escorted into an elevator that would decide their fate. Would they be good and go up to Heaven? Or would they be evil and end up in Hell? Where do you think I was sent? If I'm being honest, I would have been disappointed if I ended up in the other place.
There was a fun guide in the elevator who quickly explained what was going on. He apologized that we had all died but welcomed us to the afterlife. Once the doors opened in Hell, we were treated to a fiery photo op. As a quick reminder, I am incapable of taking a non-awkward photo, so this is what I ended up with:
After that was through, we received a sweet NYCC exclusive Good Omens pin and a nice notebook. Good Omens is one of my favorite books, so I'm eagerly looking forward to the TV show premiering in 2019.
