By Guy Chapman – Navarro County Gazette
If you were a kid of the 1990s, the phrase “It’s Morphin’ Time” takes on a nostalgic meaning.
With that in mind, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fans will want to keep their Power Coins in hand and their schedules cleared 12 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 3, as Jason David Frank (Tommy Oliver/Green Ranger/White Ranger) will be making a local appearance at Oiltown Comics.
The special event is part of the Power Ranger Protection Program, an initiative by Frank designed to help bring extra business to comic shops who have been affected by COVID-19. Frank, a fan favorite who lives in Houston, travels to comic shops in need, autographs memorabilia for fans, and shares part of the proceeds he makes with the store he visits.
Oiltown Comics has been a regular hangout for local pop culture enthusiasts looking for the latest comic books, action figures, games, and collectibles. Nic Davidson, owner of Oiltown Comics expressed his appreciation for Frank’s support.
“This entire Power Ranger Protection Program he is doing for so many shops across Texas and even a few in surrounding states as well is really awesome,” Davidson said. “We are just really grateful he is squeezing us into that schedule.”
Oiltown Comics has been part of the Corsicana community since 2016. The store celebrates its fourth anniversary of business Oct. 13.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic still being present, guidelines for social distancing and crowd control and will be followed during the event.
