Make CBLDF your first stop today at Emerald City Comic Con! We’re at Booth #2116 so come by and say hi! While you’re here, make sure to check out our killer selection of CBLDF merch and signed graphic novels. Every purchase is a donation to CBLDF (so remember that when you are explaining to your Mom/Roommate/Significant Other/Turtle why you had to bring home more books).

On the first day of the show, Seattle Public Library has joined with Emerald City Comic Con to present a full day of panels designed to educate and empower. They have built the themes around social issues for educators and librarians, but there is really a great mix for anyone who loves comics. You won’t want to miss :

CENSORED: The Comics They Don’t Want You To Read (and How to Keep ‘em Circulating)
