Fans get decked out for biannual event featuring comics, toys and novelties

Fans of comics, science, astronomy, Star Wars, superheroes and other similar pursuits have the opportunity to come together for The Coca-Cola Space Science Center’s biannual Comic Book Show from 11 am. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Dutch Cummings, coordinator of visitor services for CCSSC, said the show was a chance for people to sell and trade their items — anything from comics, toys, action figures, novels, posters and cards.

Hobbyists and fans will be able to see their favorite characters with the support of Star Wars fan clubs and costuming organizations — the 501st Legion, The Dented Helmet and Rebel Legion. The Central Georgia Ghostbusters features fans of the well-known franchise who dress up in costume and USS DaVinci Columbus Chapter for fans of Star Trek.

Visitors can also explore the Coca-Cola Space Science Center at a discount. Tour the CCSSC and visit the book show for $4 — Sunday only. The regular admission cost for adults is $6.

The CCSSC is a division of Columbus State University and includes interactive displays such as flight simulators, the Omnisphere Theater planeterium, Mead Observatory and the Challenger Learning Center.

“We do these types of shows to bring in people to our outreach center and expose them to the university and (CCSSC),” Cummings said.

It also provides nonresidents a chance to see what Columbus is about.
