Albany Comic Con 2012

albany comic con poster 2012The annual Albany Comic Con is this Sunday at the Holiday Inn on Wolf Road. From 10 am-4 pm that day, there will be comic book dealers, panel discussions, workshops, and exhibits. Tickets are $5.

The convention will also include a silent auction of sketches from comics artists to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. From the blurbage:

Sketches of famous comic book characters including Batgirl, Supergirl, The Thing (from The Fantastic Four), Black Widow (from The Avengers), and more will be the highlights of the auction. Sketches have been donated by such notable longtime artists as Joe Staton, Joe Sinnott, Lee Moder, Paul Abrams, Fred Hembeck, and many others.

A page by Jack Kirby and Sinnott from 1966's Fantastic Four #55 recently sold for more than $155k. We suspect the sketches at the Albany Comic Con will sell for something a bit less than that.

(Thanks, Kevin!)
