Spider-Man is coming to Syracuse. The creative geniuses at Marvel Comics have designed a special limited-edition cover for the first ever Comic Con Day at the New York State Fair.

The Fair and Salt City Comic Con will sell the Spider Man comic showing the Expo Center and the fictional superhero in small quantities at the Salt City Comic Con, July 6-7 and during the Fair’s first-ever Comic Con at the Fair Day, Wednesday, August 28.

“We’re thrilled to partner with our friends at Salt City Comic Con and with Marvel Comics, a great New York company, to bring this terrific idea to life. Our friends at the New York State Police do a wonderful job of keeping everyone safe during the Fair but it’s fun to imagine Spidey reuniting a lost child with his parents. These two Comic Con events are going to be great fun and I encourage everyone to take part,” said Troy Waffner, Fair Director.

Salt City Comic Con is in the Expo Center this year. Actor Ernie Hudson, who played Winston Zeddemore in “Ghostbusters,” along with one of the original Ghostbusters vehicles, the Ecto-1 will be at the event on Saturday, July 6. “The Munsters” actor Butch Patrick, WWE wrestler Lita and several stars of professional wrestling and former New York Mets pitcher Dwight “Doc” Gooden, are just a few celebrities who will make an appearance.

Details on the Fair’s Comic Con Day are still being firmed up but cosplayers in full costumer will get in for $1. You'll learn how to use a lightsaber. Enjoy an evening of classic movies and meet Bumblebee from the Transformer movies and Hulkbuter from the Marvel movies and comics.

We are BEYOND stoked to announce our partnership with Marvel to bring you the first EVER State Fair Marvel comic cover! The comic, with a custom cover, will be sold at Salt City Comic-Con July 6-7 in the Expo Building and at The State Fair's first ever Comic-Con Day August 28th.
