Artists and Vendors
Naomi Cole is a librarian at the Leonardtown Library, but she is secretly an amazing artist on the side!

Mariluz Fermaint Gonzalez
A newcomer to Lexicon, Mariluz Fermaint Gonzalez a.k.a. Chiketart is a local freelance artist who draws inspiration from the things around her like animation, comics, and her cat to create digital and traditional pieces of art. See more of her work!
Chris Rubenstahl is the creator, writer, and illustrator of the comic Necroczar: Manifest Destiny. Described in his own words, Necroczar is “like House of Cards, but with a cast of demons from the under world.”

Third Eye Comics
Third Eye Comics, Maryland’s premiere store for comics, graphic novels, toys and games, won’t be able to make it in person, but they’re providing lots of freebies and giveaways!
Part renaissance faire, part comic-con, VikingsCon combines the best of both worlds!
There is a very good chance that we’ll will be visited by the 501st Legion, a fan group devoted to dressing up like villains from the Star Wars franchise!
Don’t worry. If you see Stormtroopers marching between the stacks it has nothing to do with your late fines!
