CBLDF Takes APE & Big Apple Conventions This Weekend!

Received by email on Thursday:

This weekend the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund lands in San Francisco and New York to greet supporters at APE & the Big Apple Con!

Beanworld creator and CBLDF Board Member Larry Marder helms the Fund’s presence at APE in San Francisco.  There the Fund will offer hundreds of great books for donations of $5 and $10, including items from authors Cory Doctorow, Jeff Smith, Terry Moore, Josh Neufeld, Neil Gaiman, and many, many more!  We’ll also be hosting a Live Art Battle featuring Jeff Smith & Dean Haspiel on Sunday afternoon!  APE starts on Saturday afternoon at The Concourse on 620 7th Street in San Francisco.  For more information visit www.comic-con.org/ape

Over in New York, Wizard’s Big Apple Con kicks off on Friday where Choker creator Ben McCool will be on hand to sign copies of the newly released CBLDF Benefit Anthology LIBERTY COMICS #2!  In addition to Liberty Comics, the CBLDF will be offering scores of signed comics and graphic novels for modest donations throughout the convention!  Big Apple Con happens at Pier 94 on 55th Street & 12th Ave in New York.  For more information, visit: www.wizardworld.com/home-apple.html

If you’re close on either coast, come say hello to the CBLDF at one of this weekend’s terrific conventions and help us in our never ending battle to protect the First Amendment in comics!
