Support the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund!

{From the CBLDF web site}

NPR's Morning Edition featured a story about comic book store owner Gordon Lee who is currently on trial for giving away a comic book on Halloween to a 9-year-old child that featured nude representations of Pablo Picasso by Nick Bertozzi that was featured in Alternative Comic's Free Comic Book Day book.

The consequences of Lee losing this case may affect all shops selling comic books and graphic novels and could be a serious blow for the industry as a whole. Having started my creative career as a clerk in a comic book shop, this issue is close to my heart. Please help us support this effort. The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is paying for Lee's legal fees. Make a donation here.
