Support the CBLDF with Trading Cards
The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is a nonprofit set up to protect the first amendment rights of the comic book community–retailers, creators, publishers, librarians, and readers. Although I may find some of the cases they work on disturbing, I do agree that you can’t pick and choose what to defend if you believe in free speech, as Neil Gaiman says much more eloquently than I could. I am just glad that there are other people out there who are willing to defend free speech, even when they don’t like the speech in question, so that I don’t have to do it.
But I can help support the work that the CBLDF does, and I can do it with trading cards. Cryptozoic Entertainment is releasing Liberty Cards, a set of trading cards showcasing some of the historic legal battles surrounding comic books from the 1950s to present day. There will be inserts with autographs and drawings from some of the biggest comic book creators out there, including @GailSimone, Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself), Jeff Smith, Stan Sakai (@stanphetamine) and many more.
The cards will be release in packs of 5, plus one nine card chase set; the base set has 72 cards, and the packs will retail for $3.50. All proceeds will go to support the work of the CBLDF.
