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.
