Friday June 30, CBLDF Defender of Liberty Jim Lee and fellow creators Ale Garza, Carlos D'Anda, and Sandra Hope will be appearing at Muse Comics in Missoula, Montana to celebrate the arrival of Superman Returns and raise money for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund!
Muse owner Amanda Fisher has planned a full day for fans to benefit the cause. Starting at 5 PM, Lee and company will be signing comics for fans at a special in-store appearance, which will be capped off by two silent auctions for rare DC RRP books by Jim Lee to benefit the Fund. Books on auction are the 2004 DC RRP edition of Superman #204, and the 2005 DC RRP edition of All Star Batman & Robin #1. Each comic will begin at a bid price of $50, bids must be placed in even dollar amounts. Comics are on display at Muse Comics, and the bid list is available during the store's open hours. Bids can be placed via telephone, call for current bid price. Comics can be mailed to winning bidders if they can't attend the signing. All proceeds from the winning bids will be donated to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
Following the signing, Lee and the WildStorm crew will join fans at a special opening weekend benefit screening of Superman Returns. Tickets for the showing are available for a $10 donation to the Fund at Muse Comics. Tickets can be purchased at the store or over the phone with a credit card for store pick up. Tickets can also be mailed to out-of-town supporters who pay appropriate postage.
"As a retailer and especially as a comic book fan, I've always felt that the CBLDF's work is essential," says Muse owner Amanda Fisher. "It's great to be able to team up with Jim, Ale, Carlos, and Sandra to put together an event that gives back to our fans and that allows us all to give back to the Fund, an organization we all depend on."
CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein says, "Amanda and her crew at Muse have always been strong supporters of the Fund's work with their regular membership drives, auctions, and raffles to raise money for our cases. We're grateful for all the effort they've put into this event, which will surely kick their support up to an even greater level at a time where our casework needs all the funds we can muster."
