UPDATE: You’ll find CBLDF at booth #603 throughout the show!

With Executive Director Charles Brownstein in Japan for a symposium on manga and censorship; Deputy Director Alex Cox in Portland, Maine, for the Maine Comics Arts Festival; and a charity auction and a booth headed up by volunteer Diana Green at St. Paul, Minnesota’s SpringCon, CBLDF is all over the world this weekend. Lest the West Coast feel left out, I’ll be on hand at the Big Wow! ComicFest in San Jose, California!

Big Wow takes place May 19 – 20 in downtown San Jose at the San Jose Convention Center, Hall 2. You’ll find CBLDF at booth #110 #603, and we’ll will join throngs of fans for two days of comics creators, media guests, and exciting programming. We’ll be on hand with an exclusive assortment of signed premiums, including what may well be the last of our hugely popular CBLDF Grab Bags.

This show is sure to slake the thirst of any Bay Area fanboy or fangirl who didn’t get their WonderCon fix this year. I know I’m excited about the extensive guest list, which includes the likes of Jim Lee, Tim Sale, Bernie Wrightson, Kevin Nowlan, and Juanjo Guarnido — and that’s just the beginning! Come hang out with me and show your support for Free Speech and the CBLDF at Big Wow this weekend!
