A Compendium of Cool Comics Cosplay: August 16th

It’s time once again for our Friday comics cosplay feature, casting the spotlight on the best comics related costumery from the cosplay community.  As always, we’re focusing on those cosplayers who we think deserve special recognition for their hard work creating the best costumes, whatever their budget, and also the work of those  photographers who capture them for posterity.

This week we’re featuring some awesome cosplay of Gentleman Ghost, Storm, The Riddler, Nova, Aquaman, Captain America, The Joker, Kitty Pryde, Deathstroke, Spider-man and J. Jonah Jameson.

Gamma Squad is committed to giving a voice to the cosplay community that thrives in communities like our friends at Each week we aim to spotlight our favorite costumes and, in addition, we also host a regular cosplay contest, with the results forming a special theme week. We invite all cosplayers, costumers and photographers to submit pictures of their work that relates to the theme (or any cosplay in general!) to our Flickr group to be considered. We’ll then pick our top choices and post them on Gamma Squad for the adoration of all.

Our current theme is:

  • Elseworlds and What Ifs..!

For now, enjoy this week’s selection.
