Albany, NY Comicon is One Week from Today -- The latest in a series of Albany comic book conventions is Sunday, April 5th at the Holiday Inn on Wolf Road in Albany. Full disclosure: the show is advertised on Comic Book Galaxy (via the banner ad at the top of this page).

John and Matt from Excellent Adventures in Ballston Spa have made each show bigger than the last, and this one looks to be the biggest yet, with plans for a panel discussion and an expansion into an additional room. I got some huge bargains at the last show and am still making my way through some of the books that I picked up that day. In addition, if you live anywhere in the Upstate New York region, you're pretty much guaranteed to run into a Who's Who of area people involved in some way with the artform and industry of comics. At previous shows I've run into Gene Kannenberg, and FantaCo alumni like Roger Green and Rocco Nigro, to name a few. Pictures from last fall's show are here.

This year's guest list includes Marvel Comics legends Herb Trimpe and Joe Sinnott, writer Ron Marz, cartoonists Fred Hembeck and Joe Staton, and others. My wife and I have brought our kids to each one of these Albany Comicons, and we're all excited for next Sunday to get here for the Spring, 2009 edition. the FantaCons of the 1980s were some of the best days of my teenage years, and I'm incredibly grateful to John and Matt and everyone that supports their efforts for bringing back a great area tradition so I can share it with my own children. I hope to see you there.

Full details on next Sunday's Albany Comicon are here.
