Throughout its existence, the Comic
Book Legal Defense Fund has carried out its mission to protect free
speech in comics through the generous support of fans and professionals
alike. At conventions, through benefit books and other fundraisers, the
comics community has rallied behind the First Amendment. No media has a
more enthusiastic base of support than comics, and the CBLDF is proud to
play a part in protecting this vital American art form.
The Fund believes that everyone in the comics community has a
vital interest in preserving the medium??s ability to grow. Everybody
knows about the outstanding efforts of Dave Sim, Neil Gaiman, Brian
Pulido, and others who have leant their time and celebrity to the CBLDF.
But the simple fact is that if just a fraction of the people reading
this joined the CBLDF for $25 a year, the Fund's membership program will
continue to have as great an impact as any single donation the CBLDF
has ever received.
Of course, the number one benefit of membership is peace of mind.
You'll know that there's someone at the other end of the phone when a
retailer gets busted or an artist is brought up on charges. Together we
stand, divided we fall. Become a member of the CBLDF and help preserve
comics as a vital medium for the next century.
