This October, DiscordiaCultureShop.com will be bringing the first ever Comic and Toy Show to Oxford via YAC and the Powerhouse Community Arts Center.

The show is set for October 29 and word is already spreading throughout the community that this will be a “can’t miss” event.

Obviously, October is several months away – six, actually – so what’s the rush?

Well, the rush is for pertinent vendors to get on board ASAP if they want to participate in the event – the first of its kind in our community.

“The UM student program committee once tried to get something like this going, without much success,” YAC Director Wayne Andrews said. “I’m hoping that if this project takes off, they will make it an annual event in Oxford.”

According to DiscordiaCultureShop.com’s operation manager Gavriel Discordia, “We need exhibitors of all kinds: artists, makers, crafters, authors, Zine makers, street artists… anyone.”

“We also need all manner of collectible dealers – professional and amateur – with toys, lunchboxes, vinyl records, art book dealers or anything awesome,” Discordia added. “We have only one large vendor space available but anyone can get an artist table – of which, there around 20 spaces left.”

The Abombinable Snowcone is a great example of merchandise that will be available at the Comic and Toy Show coming to Oxford in October.

“The Comic and Toy Show is about featuring anything unique and cool – not just typical superhero stuff,” Discordia concluded.
