The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund makes its first-ever U.K. appearance this weekend at London Super Comic Convention as part of the organization’s efforts “to develop stronger international exchange for fighting global trends in comics censorship.”
Among the thank-you gifts for supporters will be the debut of Mark Millar and Goran Parlov’s Starlight #1 CBLDF Liberty Variant from Image Comics, a new Martha Washington print that will be signed Saturday at 11 a.m. by Dave Gibbons, and the return of Frank Miller’s classic CBLDF Band-Aid image, signed by the artist.
Executive Director Charles Brownstein will also present “Comics on Trial! The Story of Comics Censorship” at noon Saturday.
Held Saturday and Sunday at London’s Excel Centre, London Super Comic Con features a creator lineup that includes Arthur Adams, Frank Cho, Charlie Adlard, Mark Buckingham, Mike Carey, Katie Cook, Peter David, Alan Davis, Gary Frank, Dave Gibbons, Kieron Gillen, Mike Grell, Barry Kitson, Roger Langridge, Garry Leach, David Lloyd, Sean Phillips, Dan Slott, Chris Weston and Chrissie Zullo.
