Our friends over at the Comic Book Legal Defense fund are having a membership drive.
Please take a look and consider becoming a member. The work they are doing is as important and timely as ever, because with the growing popularity of graphic novels, the art form has caught the attention of people who think they know better than the rest of us what we should read. Not every attempt to restrict or challenge a book is the result of bad intentions, but when BONE is one of the most challenged graphic novels of the last couple of years, you have to wonder if folks are at least a little misinformed or confused. In any case, it behooves comics as a community to be aware and be prepared.
For as little as $25 a year, you can be an essential part of their mission to protect comics. They’ve prepared some exclusive items to thank everyone who joins the Fund by November 2, including some specifically created by comics creators. Here is a link to mine:
