Exhibitor and Artist Alley Frequent Asked Questions

I havent heard about my placement yet or if I have my expansion?

         Phoenix Comicon has to have its floor plan approved prior to placing vendors and artists into their slot, this can take some time. Just as soon as these approvals are complete we will start placing vendors and notifying them of their position. If you havent heard anything is usually because we dont have the information yet. As vendors you are very important to Phoenix comicon, as soon as we can relese placement information we will notify you.

I have an Artist Alley table.  I’ll be selling my own work, but can I sell someone else’s work too?

No third-party selling.  Artist Alley tables allow for the sale of items created or produced by the artist.  Artist Alley tables do not allow for the sale of mass produced work that the artist is not involved in (such as bringing in one’s old Spider-man collection.  Unless, that artist worked on Spider-man).
