Next week, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund arrives in San Diego for Comic-Con International with a bunch of exciting new fundraising premiums, including CBLDF Exclusive variants of new Adventure Time & Quantum and Woody comics, and a brand new t-shirt! Let’s take a look at some of the exciting new items you’ll find at booth #1920…
Consider the image above. You might look at that and say to yourself, “That is a t-shirt I would wear. IF ONLY SUCH A T-SHIRT EXISTED AND SUPPORTED FREE SPEECH!” Dear reader, it’s as if we heard your whispered prayers, because this t-shirt will debut at Comic-Con! Celebrating the free expression spirit of the great William Gaines, the shirt will be available in booth #1920 while supplies last!
Also new for Comic-Con, we will have an exclusive variant cover for Adventure Time #18, with art by the amazingly talented Chrystin Garland! Created in partnership with our friends at BOOM! Studios, this awesome cover will benefit CBLDF and is available in very limited quantities, so act fast!
As mentioned previously, we will have the Comic-Con debut of the exclusive CBLDF Liberty Variant of Quantum and Woody #1, with a cover by Tony Millionaire. This is the first convention variant ever assembled by Valiant, and all proceeds benefit CBLDF! Stop by the booth at 4:00 p.m. on Friday to get the variant signed by writer James Asmus!
We are extremely proud to have copies of Manga: Introduction, Challenges, and Best Practices, our new authoritative guide about manga, at Comic-Con. This book will not be widely available until late fall, and it represents an enormous amount of hard work and research from a team of volunteers whose expertise in manga is unparalleled. If you are an educator, a retailer, or a fan, this is an indispensable addition to any library or bookshelf, and it will be available only at the CBLDF booth.
Also, we will have a limited number of copies of the retailer member exclusive CBLDF Comics Code Variant of Lazarus #1! If your local shop didn’t have a copy, DO NOT FRET. Stop by booth #1920 to get your copy!
Aside from these exclusives, we’ll have in-booth signings for other special premiums, including Super Graphic by Tim Leong and The Passion of Gengoroh Tagame with designer Chip Kidd and translator Anne Ishii, among other exciting appearances! Check back here or visit booth #1920 during the show for a full signing schedule and updates.
This is going to be a Comic-Con to remember!
