CBLDF Presents Liberty Annual hit shelves yesterday, and early reviews are already singing its praises! When you buy a copy, not only do you get some of the best creators in comics — edited by Dark Horse Comics Editor-in Chief Scott Allie, it features original work from Richard Corben, Gabriel Hardman, Corinna Bechko, Art Baltazar, Franco, Paul Tobin, Emi Lenox, and many, many more — you also support Free Speech!
Bloody Disgusting gives the Annual 4.5 out of 5 skulls and urges readers to “rush to your nearest comic shop and buy it,” saying:
Five bucks is a small price to pay for all this talent. There is no easy way to tackle a book as robust as this, so I’ll be breaking each story down individually. As a whole the book is impressive, varied, and entirely worth supporting.
Adventures in Poor Taste asked “Is It Good?” to resounding approval:
Hell yes. There is so much to love in this series, and on top of all that the proceeds go towards a good cause. Anyone worried about nudity or vulgarity shouldn’t be too worried either. There’s a bit of swearing, but generally the messages are more about why censorship is bad and the evils at which censors will go to stop creators rather than being vulgar for vulgars sake. This is a top notch anthology that is going to be in the running for an Eisner. Yeah, it’s that good.
On Wednesday, October 9, you can join Jeremy Atkins (Charles de Ghoul), Ron Chan (Plants vs. Zombies), Emi Lenox (EmiTown), Michelle Madsen (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Dave Stewart (Hellboy), and Paul Tobin (Bandette) for an exclusive signing and membership drive at Things From Another World!
