Bill Gaines Was Right! EC Comics and Mad Magazine on Trial
Sunday, March 29 • 1:30 – 2:20 p.m. • Hall F (TCC 304)

Bill Gaines is one of the most important figures in comics history. As the publisher of EC Comics and MAD Magazine, he oversaw some of the greatest comics ever made. But over the years he had to fight for the right to create these comics, and along the way he helped change the face of the industry and the law. From the Comics Code to the Supreme Court, history has proven Bill Gaines was right! Moderated by CBLDF Deputy Director Alex Cox.
