Comic Book Day - Since it's banned books week, I'm highlighting some titles that have been challenged or banned. Brian K. Vaughan apparently makes comics that people really like to ban. That's okay, I'll take all the copies they don't want. He's one of my faves!
I picked up this shirt at the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund booth at Emerald City Comicon. Each year, I always make an effort to stop by their booth to support the organization. More info about them from cbldf.org:
- "Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the First Amendment rights of the comics medium."
- "Since 1986, the CBLDF has managed and paid for the legal defense of individuals whose First Amendment rights are threatened for making, selling, or even reading comic books."
- "The CBLDF is a sponsor of Banned Books Week, the annual celebration of the Freedom to Read. CBLDF works with libraries, retailers, and individuals to promote and support this celebration of our First Amendment right to read each year."
