The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund booth is always a necessary stop at Comic-Con. Their table is covered with great comics signed by great creators, and purchases go to a very important cause. They also always boast an impressive list of exclusives and other items, and this year is no different. If you swing by the CBLDF table, you can pick up an exclusive Adventure Time cover by regular AT contributor Chrystin Garland, a print of a graphic from Super Graphic author Tim Leong detailing why certain comic books are banned in libraries, and a "Bill Gaines Was Right" t-shirt, depicting the legendary EC editor who famously defended First Amendment rights in his testimony before the Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency in 1954.
