2015 wasn't an easy year for S.P.A.C.E. The Ramada Inn, it's home for the last five or so years, closed its doors just months before it's scheduled date, causing a last minute scramble to find a new location. But Bob pulled through, finding a new home at the Northland Performing Arts Center and making what was a spring-time show, now set in July. Unfortunately, the move meant that a number of longtime exhibitors wouldn't be able to attend, as the new dates conflicted with other events -- but Ken Eppstein, head of Nix Comics came to the rescue, hosting Extra SPACE, to make sure that date could still celebrate the comic-booky goodness that Columbus loves to showcase!
So, with S.P.A.C.E. back on track, I was ready to represent and submit for the COVETED SPACE Prize -- a yearly recognition of the best works created and showcased at that year's show. And just as we have for years, V:IP was ready to be counted! And out of our five entries, THREE have been counted as finalists in their respective categories!
