While supplies last, CBLDF is proud to reward new members with signed books by legendary manga creators Yoshitaka Amano, Toshio Maeda, Yusei Matsui, Yuto Tsukuda, and Akira Himekawa, plus original art from Girls und Panzer by Takeshi Nogami!
Because of misconceptions and prejudices, manga not only faces challenges and bans around the world, but also legislation targeting the medium and its fans. CBLDF Executive Director, Charles Brownstein, spoke about the problems manga faces –
“With strategic effort, I believe it is possible that the diversity of manga can achieve a substantial audience in the States and elsewhere, which will help reinforce that this is a wide-ranging medium, not merely a childhood and adolescent phenomenon. Based on our experience defending the rights of western comics, developing that popular understanding is essential to fighting broad calls for censorship.
You can help CBLDF’s work promoting the free expression rights of the manga community by joining CBLDF today! Donors at every level will receive a Manga Book Club Handbook, CBLDF Sticker Set, and 2018 CBLDF Membership Card!
