Albany Comic Con 2017 spring

Albany Comic Con 2017 spring posterThe Albany Comic Con returns this Sunday, June 4 at the Radisson Hotel on Wolf Road. Tickets are $8 ahead online / $10 day of at the door.

The con includes comics artists and authors, exhibitors, collectibles, and a cosplay fashion show. Blurbage:

The areas best dealers, and professionals all come together to make the show a full blown convention, but with the intimacy you can't find at the larger national conventions. We promote two shows a year, one in the Spring, The other in the fall, close to Halloween. It's the shows mission to continue to grow the comics medium and expand audience awareness of comic books, and the fun and excitement they provide.

Among the lineup of authors and artists is Steve Orlando, a writer for DC. Here's an AV Club interview with him from last fall about the many books he's been working on -- including Midnighter and Apollo, about a pair of gay superheroes.
