This weekend finds your battle-hardened CBLDF crew eagerly headed to sunny San Francisco, California, for WonderCon 2011! You’ll find the whole team at the Moscone Center with a booth chock full of signed premiums, a new Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab fragrance, a new t-shirt, and Frank Quitely exclusives!
So, what are these Frank Quitely exclusives we promise?! First, we have a stunning full-color print designed by Quitely exclusively to benefit CBLDF. We also have a signed and numbered black and white facsimile edition of the original art that is limited to only 50 pieces. Finally, CBLDF supporters who visit the booth will find two exclusive Frank Quitely sets of CBLDF Signature Series postcards! Check out all the details here.
On top of the Quitely exclusives, we will be launching an exclusive new scent from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab! The scent, Cohen v. California, celebrates the landmark First Amendment case that acknowledged profanity as protected speech. The scent is accompanied by an all-new signed and numbered print by Beanworld creator Larry Marder! Full details about this set are here.
In addition to all the exclusive premiums CBLDF is offering during WonderCon, April 1-3, 2011, CBLDF is also excited to announce the premiere of a new t-shirt at the show! Come by the booth to pick up this shirt and tell the world that you read banned comics!
And that’s just a taste of what we have in store for you at booth 323!

Friday 3:30 – 5:30 p.m.

CBLDF: After the Code
Friday, 5:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Earlier this year, the Comics Code Authority was shut down. For more than fifty years the Code seal has served as a vivid reminder of the brutal government investigation and self-censorship that decimated the industry in the 1950s. It also stood as a standard that led to the censorship of a wide variety of comics. As the Code fades into history, the CBLDF moderates a discussion about how the Code impacted comics and the threats that remain in its absence. The panel will include Sergio Aragonés, Mike Friedrich, Paul Levitz, Bill Sienkiewicz, and Marv Wolfman, and will be moderated by CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein.
Also on Friday:
