And just like that, Comic-Con comes to an end: Today is the last day of the show, and you last chance to get CBLDF exclusives (providing we haven’t sold out)! You can also take in our always-entertaining Live Art Jam — and take some of the pieces home — and meet Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba at booth #1918!
CBLDF E.C. Lives! Art Jam
12:15 – 1:45 p.m. • Room 5AB
Sixty years ago, E.C. Comics threw in the towel, shuttering everything but Mad Magazine when the Picto-Fiction titles failed to reach an audience. Although defeated by the Comics Code and the moral panic of the 1950s, E.C. left an indelible mark on the comics medium that’s still felt to this day. Join special guest artists, who will create art in tribute to the E.C. tradition before your eyes. These great creators will share their perspectives on censorship and make once-in-a-lifetime art to benefit the Fund’s important work defending the right to read comics. Get a chance to watch live art being created, learn about censorship, and bid to win the pieces made during the panel! All proceeds benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Creators include Janet Lee (Return of the Dapper Men, Once Upon a Time), Pepe Moreno (Batman: Digital Justice, Hellcab), and Brian Essig-Peppard (Zeroes for Hire).
3:00 – 4:00 p.m. — Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon
