Ohio Is For Sale, But The Comic Is Free

Posted by October 21, 2015 Comment

Cartoonist Jon Allen has been producing the online comic, Ohio is For Sale, since 2012, and it’s now entering its 7th chapter, all posted online, but also available in chapter-based high-end mini comics at indie comic shows, particularly on the East Coast. Recently he launched chapters 5 and 6 at Small Press Expo, and is currently preparing chapter 7 for Locust Moon Comics Festival, coming up on October 31st in Philadelphia.

Allen is a member of Hang Dai Studios in Gowanus, Brooklyn, alongside Dean Haspiel, Gregory Benton, Joe Infurnari, Christa Cassano, Swifty Lang, and more.

Here’s a survey of some of his work on Ohio Is For Sale, but feel free to go read the entire saga so far, for free:
