Get An ‘Adventure Time’ Exclusive, A Tim Leong Graphic and A Bill Gaines T-Shirt At The CBLDF Booth [SDCC 2013]
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. You can check out all three below.
Here's the Adventure Time cover from Garland:
In addition to this graphic, Leong will be at the CBLDF booth at 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday signing copies of Super Graphic, which we recently spoke to him about:
And lastly, this Bill Gaines shirt is an homage to Quentin Quire's "Magneto Was Right" shirt from Grant Morrison's New X-Men. When called on to testify to defend the nature of EC Comics' graphic horror stories, specifically this famous cover to Crime Suspenstories #22. When Senator Estes Kefauver of Tennessee asked Gaines "Do you think that is in good taste?", Gaines famously replied "Yes, sir, I do, for the cover of a horror comic."
You can pick up each of these items at the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund table, at booth #1920.
