Exhibitor Info

2015 SPACE Prize:
If you would like to be considered for the 2015 SPACE Prize, Please bring the book(s) you would like to submit with you to the show. An entry form will be provided there for you to fill out. Books and forms will be collected at the Back Porch Comics table. There will be prize catagories General, Minicomic/Short Story and Webcomic. (We're not sure if we have the funding for the graphic novel category yet). See the SPACE Prize page for more info.

We expect to have a full day of panels scheduled including the 2014 SPACE Prize Award presentation.

Each table comes with two chairs and two passes unless you ordered extra passes in which case you’ll get the same amount of chairs up to 3 (Can’t fit more than 3 chairs behind a table.) There will not be any table coverings. If you want one bring your own. The tables are 6’-0” long X 2'-6" wide.

Program Book:
The program book will be about 24 pages with an 8 page insert covering the exhibitor list and table locations and program. The main book will be filled with articles and comics.

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”. Since I can walk into the local mall and pick a Playboy (or Playgirl for that matter) I don’t know where that leaves the line. 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.

You can always contact me via the internet or at Back Porch Comics P.O.Box 20550 Columbus OH 43220
