The COMIC BOOK LEGAL DEFENSE FUND is proud to announce that CBLDF Defender, a new free quarterly news magazine coming to you from the front lines of the fight for free speech, is now available! You can find it at comic book stores across the nation, on comiXology, and you can always get it for free at CBLDF.org!
Each issue of CBLDF Defender will bring engaging creator interviews, detailed analysis of current censorship news, and in-depth features that tell the story of the people fighting for the freedom to read! Neil Gaiman kicks off the first issue with an in-depth interview on his battles with censorship. We’re also taking you to the front lines, with news and analysis on the latest censorship battles raging in schools and libraries across the USA. Take a look at international cartoonist rights issues and the free speech fallout from the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Plus, a lively history of Bill Gaines, the U.S government, and the birth of the Comics Code!
Let’s take a look at the attack on reading and how CBLDF is working to fight censorship!
