Vendors License:

We are recommending that anybody selling at SPACE get a vendors license. If you do not have a regular vendors license than you should get a Transient Vendor's license by filling out form ST-1T from the Ohio Department of Taxation website. There is a one-time application fee of $25.00. There is no further fee except for the sales tax you collect as long as you file every six months even if you have made no sales in Ohio.

The form can be obtained though the mail by writing to the Ohio Department of Taxation P.O.Box 182215 Columbus OH 43218-2215

Please Note: If you are coming from out of state you can apply for  Seller's License UT-1000 which does not have an application fee.



Although my comics are pretty mild I\\\'m very anti-censorship. Columbus like every other city has obscenity laws, which basically state what you can get away with, is based on this undefined thing called the community standard.  One thing I can say for sure is nothing considered objectionable can be openly displayed. Also nothing that is objectionable can be viewed by children. Example: A comic with Mature material inside can sit on the table if there is nothing objectionable on the cover (which is usually the case if you want to sell stuff at comic shops). If a kid picks it up it's up to you to stop them. I'm anti-censorship but pro-responsibility. I believe the responsibility of what children view is the responsibility of the parents but in this environment you the comic producer know best what is in your publications and can make that judgment. I think the fact that we are sitting right there monitoring who has access to our material should be enough to keep us all out of trouble.



If anybody has to cancel I'd appreciate it if you could let me know as soon as possible. Refunds will be made minus paypal charges or postage up to two weeks before the show.
