Image & Comic Book Legal Defense Fund Team-Up For Anti-Censorship Variants In September

The Press Release:
This September, Image Comics fights censorship with a powerful line of variant covers to benefit Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF), the industry’s voice for free speech advocacy and education. All proceeds from this dynamic campaign will support CBLDF’s important legal work on behalf of comics creators, retailers, educators and readers.

All proceeds from this campaign will benefit CBLDF, with each title featuring two versions of the CBLDF Charity variant—one censored and one uncensored. Image Comics is pleased to reveal the censored versions here. Spearheaded by HACK/SLASH creator Tim Seeley and Image Comics’ Publisher Eric Stephenson, this benefit includes contributions from Skottie Young, Mirka Andolfo, Howard Chaykin, Justin Greenwood, Geoffo, Ryan Browne, Wook-Jin Clarke, David Rubín, Martin Morazzo, Mark Torres, Danny Luckert, and Seeley himself.

“Comics have been uniquely affected by censorship since the very beginning,” said Seeley. “I wanted to do something with my fellow Image creators to call attention to the problem, and to raise money for CBLDF to help their efforts to fight back. They own the Comics Code Seal of Approval, the censorship stamp that used to govern almost all comics until that organization died in 2011. We thought we’d bring back the Code for one month, to show how ham-fisted those censorship attempts were while having some fun making money for the CBLDF’s important work.”

Exploring NY Comic Con 2017: Day Three (Part 1)

Okay so here we are again and before this installment gets underway let me thank you for sticking with this group of narratives for so many parts already. To me as a photographer and journalist, the NY Comic Con is one of the most daunting of events to cover because its not only massive in scope but its also taking over other locations as well. Sure we have the Press Badge as our credentials but that doesn’t let you jump lines to cover panels and appearances, you have to arrive early as all heck to make sure you are inside those. As result, I stick to the Javits Center generally and explore as much as possible as you have seen in the past posts. Day Three is the Saturday session and the most attended historically speaking. Part 1 of this days overview will begin in a moment and find me exploring Artist Alley and some other regions. If you missed anything that came before this post, click on THIS LINK to open a battery of content to peruse. Shall we?

Exploring NY Comic Con 2015; Day 3 – Part 3

Oh hey there, you’re up. That’s good to see being the case because we’ve been here for quite awhile making sure your view screen is loaded with wonderful images from the recent 2015 NY Comic Con. Though the event has been over for several days by the time you are seeing this, I still have a few more chapters to share with you. Long time readers know we generally post about “50” photos in each of the posts for ease of enjoyment and focus. Let’s start today’s party by saying “I’m the King Of Rock, there is no higher, you sucka MC’s better call me Sire” because that is the one and the only Darryl McDaniels or DMC from the famous Rap group Run DMC. Darryl has his own comics imprint and was enjoying his time at NYCC. He was in Artist Alley and talked to every single fan that came to his table. That is class.
