Official Press Release


The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, Marvel Comics, and George Perez
have teamed up to smash censorship! The 2004 CBLDF Member Card
features Marvel’s Hulk putting his foot down for free speech in a
stunning image drawn by JLA/Avengers visionary George Perez! To view
the image, visit http://www.cbldf.org.

“This card is a great first,” says CBLDF Executive Director
Charles Brownstein. “Marvel’s really stepped up in a big way
by becoming the first major company to allow the use of one of their
key icons on our Member Card. It’s also the first time that
George, a past recipient of our Defender of Liberty Award, has
illustrated the card. And, of course, they’re teaming up to help
us protect the most important First of all ­ The First
Amendment.”

All CBLDF Members who sign up in 2004 at $25 or better will receive
the Perez Hulk Member Card. One hundred members will also be able to
to get their card signed by George Perez by joining the CBLDF Century
Club . Brownstein explains, “The Century Club is something Jim
Lee got going last year. Basically the first 100 people to sign up
with the Fund at a membership level of $100 or better gets their card
signed by George.”

In addition to the Perez card, the Fund also rolled out the rest of
this year’s Member Premiums. Foremost is the 2004 Member Pin,
which features Randy Dahlk’s Fund Logo in gold on an attractive
cloisonné pin. The pin is sent to members who join at the $50
level. For members who sign up at the $100 level, the Fund is
offering a Member T-Shirt, which features the Fund logo in red and
blue on a black shirt. Other membership incentives for higher levels
are available at http://www.cbldf.org.

“This card is great example of how the comics community is
helping the Fund keep watch on this field’s First Amendment
rights,” Brownstein said. “Marvel, George, and John
Gallagher, who originally published this image on the cover of More
Fund Comics are to be commended for supporting us with their hard
work.”
