Now Available: CBLDF Defender #8!

CBLDF Defender is our free quarterly news magazine coming to you from the front lines of the fight for free speech, and the seventh issue is now available! You can find it at comic book stores across the nation, on comiXology, and right here at!

Each issue of CBLDF Defender brings engaging creator interviews, detailed analysis of current censorship news, and in-depth features that tell the story of the people fighting for the freedom to read!

In the last issue of 2016, CBLDF talks with Preacher writer and sometimes controversial scribe Garth Ennis about censorship, politics, and more! CBLDF Defender #8 features a cover by the inimitable and gone-too-soon Steve Dillon. We also take a look back on CBLDF’s three decades of protecting comics, including the biggest censorship stories of 2016.

Let’s take a look at the latest attacks on free speech and how CBLDF is working to fight censorship!
