Since its debut a few years ago, the Albany Comic Con turned into a terrific one-day show being done for all the right reasons — to promote comics in the region, and give fans a worthy experience. The latest edition of the Albany Comic Con will be held Sunday, Oct. 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Holiday Inn on Wolf Road in Albany, NY. Admission is a miniscule $5.

In addition to me, the guest list includes Jim Starlin, Joe Sinnott, J.M. DeMatteis, Tom Raney, Lee Moder, Nelson Blake 2nd, Todd Dezago, Matthew Dow Smith, Fred Hembeck, David Gallaher, Steve Ellis, Jennifer Meyer, Tom Peyer and a lot more. Pretty impressive guest list, right? I’ll be on a panel with Jim Starlin in the afternoon, focusing on Jim’s career and preset projects. There will also be a silent auction of art pieces and other items, with all proceeds to benefit neighboring Schoharie County, which was hit hard by the Hurricane Irene flooding.

I’ll have copies the first two Shinku issues on hand, as well as both volumes of the Samurai: Heaven and Earth collections. If there’s something else specific you’re looking for, leave a comment and I’ll see if I have copies.
