Going to San Diego Comic-Con this year? You’ve got two incredibly fun opportunities to support the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund this year — and we’ve got all the details!
First, come support free speech and experience the best of Comic-Con at the CBLDF Comic-Con Welcome Party, Thursday, July 24, at the Westgate Hotel from 8:00 to 11:00 pm! This rooftop shindig is sponsored by Image Comics, Kickstarter, comiXology, and Eventbrite, with special gallery displays from TFAW and Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab.
You’ll rub shoulders with some of the greatest creators in comics, including Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples, Scott Snyder, Nick Dragotta, Nick Pitarra, Paul Pope, and many more. Plus, the first 200 attendees will receive a free gift bag, with exclusive items from Image Comics and CBLDF! RSVP now to guarantee your gift bag. This party is free for CBLDF members. Non-members: Suggested $10 to $20 donation at the door, please.
Next, it’s finally here: the CBLDF Live Art Auction at SDCC! Saturday, July 26 from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm, join the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund in Sapphire Ballroom EF at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront to bid on amazing original art from Jeff Smith (Bone), John Cassaday (Planetary), Emma Ríos (Pretty Deadly), Frank Quitely (Jupiter’s Legacy), Jenny Frison (Revival), Francesco Francavilla (Detective Comics), Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth), and many more!
Since 2009, Things From Another World has proudly teamed up with CBLDF to solicit donations of original art for their annual auction at San Diego Comic-Con. We’re thankful that we’ve been able to help raise more than $100,000 to support the First Amendment rights of the comics community — be sure to preview some of these amazing pieces at our SDCC 2014 auction page now!
