    Press Release:

    The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund has fought for the First Amendment Rights of the comics community since 1986. Now here’s your chance to join the fight for free speech at our CBLDF Liberty Annual 2013 signing and membership drive October 9 at the Portland TFAW.

    Meet CBLDF Liberty Annual 2013 contributors Jeremy Atkins (Charles de Ghoul), Ron Chan (Plants vs. Zombies), Emi Lenox (EmiTown), Michelle Madsen (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Dave Stewart (Hellboy), and Paul Tobin (Bandette), and learn how you can join the CBLDF for as little as $25! Complimentary food and beer (for those 21+ with valid ID) provided.

    Everyone has a story to tell, but what happens when a story gets taken away from its creator? The CBLDF Liberty Annual 2013 looks at the creative costs of censorship, either through outside interference, or through more private forms. All proceeds from this book benefit the important First Amendment work of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, who’ve been fighting censorship in comics for over 25 years!

    Special bonus: Courtesy of Dark Horse Comics, attendees at this event only who sign up for CBLDF membership at the $50-$249 level will receive a Lone Wolf and Cub Volume 1 Limited Edition hardcover, while supplies last. Attendees who sign up for CBLDF membership at the $250 or greater level will receive a Give Me Liberty hardcover, signed by Frank Miller and Dave Gibbons, also while supplies last. These bonuses are in addition to the CBLDF’s generous incentive rewards for membership.

    “It is easy to take our First Amendment Rights for granted. Yet, historic and present day events alike underscore how important it is that everyone does their part to protect the First Amendment Rights of the comics community, and of Americans as a whole,” said TFAW Vice President and CBLDF Board Member Andrew McIntire. “This is why we have supported the CBLDF for years, furthered our commitment as a corporate member, and why we are asking our friends in Portland to come out and join us in supporting the important work of the CBLDF by becoming members.”

    Published by Image Comics and edited by Dark Horse Editor-in-Chief Scott Allie, the CBLDF Liberty Annual 2013 contains 48 pages of all-new stories and also features the talents of Richard Corben (Creepy), Tim Seeley (Revival), Art Baltazar and Franco (Itty Bitty Hellboy), and more. Pick up your copy at the Portland TFAW October 9 for just $4.99, get it signed by some of Portland’s hottest creators, and learn about the benefits of membership in the CBLDF.
