Image Comics creators S. Steven Struble and Sina Grace have teamed up with the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund to produce a limited edition Lil Depressed Boy print, which made its debut at New York Comic-Con 2012.
Depicting the titular character unable to exercise his right to free speech, this print is limited to one hundred pieces, and is signed by both Struble and Grace. Printed in Los Angeles by local illustrator and screen printer Dave Kloc (www.davekloc.com), the haunting prints measure 11X14 inches, perfect for any frame. "I have been a huge advocate and fan of The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, and this opportunity felt like a great way to tackle an on-going issue in media with our readers", says Grace.
Originally an anthologized web-comic, THE LI'L DEPRESSED BOY found its print home at Image Comics in 2011, maintaining a cult status early on. The series follows the non-adventures of a rag doll boy on his quest for love, happiness, and a good album on vinyl.All proceeds of this print go to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Lil Depressed Boy creator and writer S. Steven Struble states: The Lil Depressed Boy is trying to find out who he is and without the ability to express himself, this would not be possible. We support the CBLDF fight to champion free self-expression within our medium.
