In addition, the convention will host a silent auction of original comic book artwork to benefit the Capital District Ronald McDonald House Charities. Local comic book professionals – including Joe Sinnott, Lee Moder, Paul Abrams, Fred Hembeck, Tom Raney, Mark McKenna and many others – have donated original sketches, which will be up for bidding from 10am-3pm.

There is no admission charge to enter the silent auction. Admission to the rest of Albany Comic Con is $5.
