The Albany Comic Con will hold two different benefits to support the local Albany Ronald McDonald House.
The second fundraiser will feature a comic-book team up between Albany Comic Con and the Tri-City ValleyCats, the Class A affiliate of the Houston Astros. The ValleyCats game will take place 7 p.m. Saturday, July 6, at Joe Bruno Stadium on the campus of Hudson Valley Community College in Troy. Albany Comic Con will honor legendary comics artist Joe Sinnott, whose work graced almost every major Marvel Comics title in a 63-year career. Dubbed “Meet Joe at the Joe,” the event will give fans a chance to meet Joe Sinnott, receive an exclusive Joe Sinnott baseball card, and get autographs from Joe and other local comic professionals. “Joe’s 63 years as a professional comic artist, working on classic Marvel titles like 'Fantastic Four,' and 'Amazing Spider-Man,' is an incredible run,” said Belskis. “He truly is a local treasure.”
Albany Comic Con will be selling tickets to the July 6 baseball game. Tickets are also available at Excellent Adventures Comics in Ballston Spa, Comics Depot in Saratoga Springs, and other local comic shops around the Capital District. Game tickets are $5, and come with the Joe Sinnott baseball card. Proceeds from the tickets will benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Albany.
The Albany Comic Con takes place on Sunday, June 16 at the Holiday Inn on Wolf Road in Colonie. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to the convention is still an affordable $5. Tickets for both the convention, and the ACC / ValleyCats night, are available on the convention website.
