In addition, they will contribute $10 for each new membership and $5 for every renewing membership made from now until December 31!

Carl Gropper of the Will & Ann Eisner Family Foundation says, “The CBLDF is as important today as when it was founded over 25 years ago. It was always important to Will Eisner, and the Foundation is thrilled to be able to continue to help. We must maintain our vigilance over our rights and liberties and stop those who would try to take them away for any reason. Please consider a membership or renewing your membership during the holiday season.”

Bill Gaines Was Right! Gift Sets

Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the United States Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency Hearings, during which Bill Gaines (legendary publisher of EC Comics and MAD magazine) stood up to the U.S. government and defended comics, these items proudly proclaim what every free -speech-supporting comic fan has known for years: “Bill Gaines was Right!”

Not only was Bill Gaines a brilliant publisher, presiding over some of the greatest comics ever made and America’s most beloved humor magazine, he was a tireless fighter against censorship and a lifelong advocate for free speech. These items succinctly celebrate his efforts, and offer a bit of thanks to a great man, and a Titan of Comics. This set includes a ceramic mug and a tote bag. A shirt can be added for an extra donation.
